Haunted Halloween House

Due to bad Internet connection, I have been unable to update my blog for the last few days.

Just wanted to shout out to all you ladies who are celebrating with me on my Blogoversary Celebration Challenge..Thanks for playing along and Good luck!

Some fantastic Fall ideas have been coming in and hope you will find something fun and inspiring to take away with you in honor of the season.

I know I have !!
I went and bought some Macintosh Apples from our local orchard and hope to try the Yummy Apple Crisp Recipe that has been shared .
( Just a little hint ; ) of what wonderful ideas have been posted ) !
Check it out in the next post down !

I wanted to share with you a Haunted House Printable I came across and a link for this fun fall project.


Here you will find printable images to construct many different Haunted Houses already embellished and ready to print.
Would make a fun project for the family on a cold rainy fall day.
A whole village of Hunting's!!

They also have a template for constructing a Gingerbread Haunted House, with template, visual and written instructions.
I wanted to decorate my own to fit into my home decor.
I used the cake template provided for the Haunted Gingerbread House adding tabs to the template to help bind it all together.
How do you like that chimney smoke, BATS !!! ooh noooo!!

Inkadinkado has this wonderful Halloween Flourish in a clear Stamp!
If you try this project please let me know,would love to stop by and see what you have created :) !
Have fun !
EDITED: to mention I left the bottom of my Haunted House open, so I could place a battery operated candle underneath.
