Paper Pieced Halloween

I found a new challenge blog last week, read the challenge and thought "I don't paper piece." So filed the link to the blog away to check again another week. Then lo & behold, I found a paper piecing pattern I thought I could pull off. BHG Scrapbooks, etc. had several fun patterns recently. The blog with the paper piecing challenge is Just Us Girls. Papertake Weekly's challenge this week is Halloween and 2 Red Bananas color challenge is purple, black & orange. The sketch inspiration came from Our Creative Corner.

I'm so tickled that you didn't give up - that's what challenges are all about - moving us in directions we don't normally go - and that is how we grow with our stampin too! Love the hat and the fun halloween paper. Thank you SO MUCH for playing along with Just Us Girls this week. I hope you really had fun and will come back again!
