I named myself The Crafting Professor, since I'm a crafter, and I'm a college professor. I went through many, many years of graduate school, and the best source of relaxation and stress relief was being in my craft room or going to a local crop. Back then, I never told anyone that I was a full-time graduate student. I was waiting for the day I would scrapbook my graduation page. Now, I run the ScrapbookerPhD challenge blog (http://scrapbookerphd.blogspot.com), and am bringing my passion for crafting and teaching together. But here, at The Crafting Professor, I'm just sharing my work with like-minded crafters from all over the world.

Witch Way...

Challenge #15: Halloween Sentiment besides Happy Halloween

It's time for another challenge at ScrapbookerPhD, and I am super excited about the theme. I have a total of 5 nephews and 1 niece that all need Halloween cards, and I want them to be super fun. I have to say that all of the inspiration for this card came from the sentiment. It is from the CardzTV set Spooky Sayings. It was an instant inspiration because the card needed a witch. I wanted a goofy witch, not a scary one. I think my 4-year old nephew would get a kick out of this one. Of course, I added bits of glitter and some orange Skittles. Finally, I dry embossed the background with stars to represent night-time.
