*** Happy Halloween ***

 Eeek!  HAPPY HALLOWEEN Everyone!! 
I hope you will enjoy this super FUN filled day Trick-or-Treating with Children of all ages!!  Kids love this Holiday for the Candy and the make believe!  The amazed looks on their little faces as they go out dressed in great costumes from home to home is always priceless.
  Eeeek!!! Isn't Maxwell, (this little Mousie guy), SCARY?? Actually, he's not, but he's really trying to be!  Do you think he can achieve it being sooooo cute?!  LOL!!

 I created this Halloween card for Today's "Try a New Technique" over at SCS, (aka: SplitCoastStampers.com). Challenge #TLC349, that can be found HERE, is to use the telescoping image technique.  What that basically means, is to make your image appear as if it is coming out of your card.  Or layer the main panel several times, (using nesties) to have your image appear as if your looking through a telescope!
For mine, I placed my Mouse over several layers of punched borders here, then layered him too, as in (Paper Tole)! What do you think??
