AiFactory Challenge - Halloween Sentiments

Good morning! It's that time of the week again and we've got a colour challenge this week! The team is using the Haunted Tags & Quotes set, and everyone is trying to do something a little different. We hope we've succeeded in giving everyone some good eye candy to look at. If you want some real candy, feel free to Trick or Treat at my house on October 31 - but remember, I live in military housing and it's generally only allowed from 6-8pm. Smiley from millan.net

Here are the colours Erin chose for our challenge this week.
In keeping with my party theme of last week, I decided that we needed some wine glass charms. Yup - time for the shrink plastic! If you haven't played with this since childhood, do yourself a favour and give it a whirl. It's fun!I had a little trouble with some of the printer colours, but overall, they came out pretty cute. Next time I won't use memory wire and I'll get some bigger beads for the sides, but sometimes you just use what you've got.
A couple quick notes - eldest son cut the memory wire for me. That was a big not-gonna-happen when I tried myself. Also, when you're recovering from tendinitis, don't decide that a project requiring lots of cutting and manipulation of jump rings is a good idea. It's not.

Now that you've had your moment to laugh at me for the day, head over to the rest of the AiFactory team and see what they've got to show for this week's challenge. The AiFactory challenge blog has all the deets.
