2 Year Anniversary

 A friend at work and I share the same anniversary date of October 4th.  We also share the same office.  We have been working in the same profession for a long time, but came together a couple of years ago to this new office/job.  We figured we should celebrate.  Since it will be close to Halloween and it is in fall, I chose these colors.  I will change out the Anniversary piece and do another piece like the top portion that says, "Halloween" after our anniversary.  We are sure the others at our office will think we have gone nuts, but hey, I think they do already!  We will bring snacks and maybe some refreshments that day as well. 

Sorry about the photo.  I am aware the colors don't look great against my table, but I don't really have some place that would work better yet.

The letters are for our names.  We have distinctively different personalities so there are two different kinds of monsters.  I'm sure she is gonna laugh when she sees it.  She is the gabby one, so she gets the one that looks like it is doing so.  Maybe a little risque!  on my part.  She may want to "love tap" me on the back of the head for that one!  lol! 

I used DCWV Ghosts and Goblins.  Such fun papers!  That is last year's Halloween set as I could not get my hands on the Midnight Spell.  I'm okay with that.  They are awesome! Bright and fun!

Cricut Cartridges:  I used Birthday Bash to make the banner, the word ANNIVERSARY and the number 2,  Happy Hauntings for the word HAPPY, Ornamental Iron for the black iron frame and Accent Essentials to cut out the circles between the scalloped circles.  I used Punches to cut out the scalloped circles.

I made the rosettes by taking a 12x12 piece of paper and cutting it into two inch strips.  I then scored it at every 1/2 inch.  Fan fold.  Glue ends of two pieces together.  Turn paper so the plain side of paper it facing the table and scrunch together to form a circle.  Glue.  Add embellishments.

I am not sure what company the stamps are from.  I have all of my stamps in a binder and this one doesn't have its name on its plastic.  Why don't they put the name there?  Oh well, they just don't get credit! 

Thanks for stopping by!
