Autumn and Halloween

It's time for a new challenge here at Crafty Boots Challenges.

When I was a child we considered wearing fancy dress and knocking on the door of our neighbour and shouting 'trick or treat' to be something only done in the United States and most certainly not something British children would ever do.  We might have been lucky enough to be invited to an afternoon party where we would bob for apples or race to eat apples suspended on twine whilst our hands were tied behind our backs, but that is as far as it went.  It seems that now there is a buzz in the air as All Hallows' Eve approaches and there is a lot of talk about carving pumpkins and picking costumes.  I have even read that Halloween is now the third largest annual retail event in the UK, following that of Easter and Christmas.

However, not everyone celebrates Halloween, so we are offering a choice of topic for this challenge and for the next two weeks we should like to see either your projects depicting autumn, with all of it's glorious colours, or Halloween.

As always with our challenges, you can use any materials you like to make anything you like, for example, a card, a box top, a gift bag, a scrapbook page, an ATC, an inchie, etc. It is entirely up to you how you choose to interpret the theme.

Our fabulous Design Team have been busy making projects to inspire you:






 





We should like to give you the opportunity to join in the fun at Crafty Boots Challenges and, therefore, we are offering guest design team spots to the winner and two runners up of this challenge.

This challenge will remain open until noon on Sunday, 8 November. There are very few rules but, if you would like to read them for yourself, you will find them here.

We are looking forward to seeing your projects, good luck.
