Guest Designer - Lyla Larimore

It is time to say hello to our Guest Designer for the 'Haunted Halloween' challenge.  Say hello and welcome back to Lyla Larimore of A Chief's Wife's Heart's a Fire, who was our top pick for the 'Haberdashery' challenge.

Happy Fall greetings! I’m Lyla Larimore and this is my third time as Guest Designer here on the Frilly and Funkie Challenge Blog. I got extremely “lucky” to get this particular theme since October is one of my favorite months of the year (just after any Summer month) and it’s always filled with special moments…and PUMPKINS! So, celebrating all the fun that Halloween brings, is included in those memories. Getting into this Challenge was almost effortless….well, almost, lol….and definitely an inky messy fun time!

My project started with a set of mini lights I found at a Menards in Minnesota, during one of our trips to visit the younger married set of kids. From way back when our boys were young and we came up with the name change of “Scarimore”, we have created our share of funny Halloween scares to pass down. But that couple, in particular, always goes all out for Halloween and its décor, and all the scary/horror movies, with The Nightmare Before Christmas being their ultimate favorite. So while checking out all the new décor with them, I found this set of plain nibbed mini lights and an idea came into my head. All I needed was a THEME to match…and there ya go; “Haunted Halloween”!

This tag is my take on the theme:

FRONT SIDE of Tag: note the “BOO!” leaking through the mirror…

BACK SIDE of Tag: of course, you’ve been told that cleaning makes you ugly, but n this instance; everything has been ALTERED; the broom becomes a tree; the mirror hides “The Man in the Moon”; and while the Wife still picks up after the Husband….the BIG pumpkin has exploded & come alive!

But….there’s more…
