TSTR week 30 - Vintage Halloween

BOO!  I'm so excited that Halloween is coming!  It's one of my favorite holidays!  There are so many cute decorations and depending on your spin on the holiday, it can be cute and fun or really scary.  I prefer cute and fun since I have little kids and I was never a fan of scary!  This week in The Shabby Tea Room, I had the pleasure of hosting the challenge and since we are getting so close to Halloween, I chose a vintage Halloween theme in Shabby Tea Room style!  Here is the inspo pic that I chose to use:
Our generous host this week in the Tea Room is Sassy Studio Designs and they provided the DT with some great Halloween sentiments to use on our projects. 
Sassy Studio Designs is a fresh new company that has been designing and selling digital images for a year now.  Make sure to check out all of their designs!
I picked two of the sentiments that went well with my card but there was so many to choose from and all so perfect for Halloween!

The Shabby Girls really outdid themselves this week with the vintage theme and I am truly in love with all of their cards!  You won't want to miss out on these great projects so visit their individual blogs here:
