Nightmare Before Christmas Party

 The Halloween Party is an event that I look forward to every year! And I LOVE that I get to be a part of preparing this EPIC Celebration. The theme this year was "Nightmare Before Christmas" and it is something that we have wanted to do for quite some time. Here are some of my favorite pics!

I drew Jack's Formula on a chalkboard painted wall. LOVE!

Simple construction paper bat silhouettes flying across the wall made for an awesome entryway.

A little cheesecloth and white glue made for some super cute ghost lampshades on the chandelier.

Faith makes some of the COOLEST wreaths and this year's spider and creepy cloth creation was one of the best, yet!
I know that I made these for last year's party; but, I just couldn't pass up another opportunity to make Jack Skellington cupcakes!

Since the party is for the kids (well, at least that is what we tell ourselves :)), the goodies were also an important element. By stacking books to create levels, it was easy to find your very own personalized  trick or treat buckets full of Halloween treats.

We didn't stop with just indoor decor... Faith's hubby took it to another level by creating the mountain, moon, and a 7 foot tall Jack Skellington! We used these as the backdrop for photos of everyone in costume.

I think Mr Oogie Boogie and his wheel were my favorite elements. So cool!

And eventough this wasn't meant to be a Face Painting event, I saw that pregnant belly and couldn't help myself. Thanks, Amy for playing along!

My Picture is in the Paper!

What a lovely suprise to find out that my picture was in the Arizona Daily Star, today for the PAWSH Anniversary Event at Park Place over the weekend! We had a great time painting faces and playing with all of the wonderful animals available for adoption. And it is always fun to get a little dressed up for the occasion :)
