Halloween Time at Paper Issues

It's a whole month of Halloween at the Paper Issues blog!  Plenty of time to join in and link up your favorite Halloween creations. 
This little number is a Halloween Countdown.  I called it 13 Days to Halloween based on one of my favorite Halloween children's books of that title by Carol Greene.  It includes 13 darling Halloween themed glass magnets, a framed countdown board,
 and a box to keep the magnets safe.  I created the magnets with Diamond Glaze and glass domes I got from Karen's Craft Supplies.  The pictures are from Land of Enchantment and The Timeless Garden.
 I bought a metal sheet from Lowes and cut it to fit the frame.  That way the magnets stick!  Here's what it looks like without all the magnets.
  And this is who kept me company while I was taking pictures outside. 
That's KittyBoy - doesn't he look like a Halloween decoration?  Okay, I'm heading to the craft room to make more of these for friends and family that decided they want one, too!  Have a happy Friday and a great weekend!
