Final 2015 Halloween Pocket Letter plus Incoming PL's!



Happy Halloween!


I'm sharing my {actual} final Halloween PL today plus those I received from my pals. At the end of the post I'll also share a pl from my pal in Memphis so I'll be caught up with October. The pocket letter above went to my pal in New York. She asked if I'd like to swap and of course I said yes. :) 

There are many photos to share with you so you might want to grab a cuppa or a quick snack. 
Let's get started.


Above is the front of my pals pocket and below are a few close ups. 

I added Tim's tissue tape to the spine and two number brads (a 3 and 1), then I attached a metal button to the striped ribbon bow. A quick tag was created from ephemera from Tim's holiday stash paper pad and I stamped Hi Pal.

The rosette is a dimensional sticker by K and Co., I stamped images (far right pocket) then colored with Copic markers and fussy cut them. Glittered alpha's spell out franks lab and I popped a Frankenstein sticker on the outer pocket. Silver liquid pearls were added to outer pockets as well as Tim's laboratory tissue tape . On the far left I added a bottle cap image and stamped Hey Ghoulfriend and a another spiders web at the top (hard to see I know).

 
A metal Idea-ology crown was added to the skull and Tim's Gothic stencil was stamped around it in Dusty Concord distress ink. For the outer pockets I stamped images (Waltzingmouse and Taylored Expressions) and punched a MS border fence on far right pocket.

The middle pocket holds die cut Halloween charms by TE and the far left pocket dies are also by TE. The remaining goodies were tucked in the back pockets which you can see below.

I included washi tape, a tag and stickers, note from me, bottle cap images, ephemera, stamped images, tea, metal Idea-ology skulls and spider medallions.


Okay now for the Halloween incoming pocket letters plus a private vintage swap I did with my pal in Memphis, Tennessee.

I love each one and want to thank each pal who took the time to create one for me. Can't wait to use the goodies on next year's pocket letters. :) 

Have a safe and fun Halloween everyone, wherever you are!
