Happy Trick or Treating!

Time for another Serendipity Stamps Challenge. This month's objective was to create a Halloween card or project. Well you all know how much fun I've been having with Halloween cards! I was happy to add another one to my collection.

This image is called "Costume Kids" and it is available alone or in a set with the wonderful sentiment. It is absolutely one of my favorites from the new fall and holiday collection at Serendipity Stamps. It really takes me back to my days as a kid, trick or treating. For weeks before October 31st everyone at school would be talking about what they were going "to be" for Halloween. Of course we all tried to out do each other with the best costume. Those were the days when our treat bag was a pillow case (which we made every effort to fill!) and reports of tainted candy and other dangers had not been heard of yet. Oh for simpler times!

Drop by my fellow design team members' sites below to see their "spooktacular" creations!
