Banners for Special Needs Kids Spooktacular Hop

Welcome Friends!!! So very glad to see you hopping along on this beautiful Sunday.

Welcome to the annual Halloween Spooktacular Banner Hop for Special Needs Children!

I am delighted to join with more than 3 dozen other women who have each made at least one Halloween-themed banner that will be donated to hang in the room of a medically-fragile child at Pediatric Specialty Care in Pennsylvania.

These children and their families -- and PSC’s staff -- will be thrilled to receive the Halloween banners, to help brighten the season when their friends and siblings will be out trick-or-treating.”

Here is the banner I am sending to a child at PSC:

 All of the cute monsters were cut using My Mini Monsters Cricut Cartridge.  

Here are each of the fun panels of the banner. 

I used Peachy Keen for all the faces on my cute monsters.

I used Martha Stewart Goo and Spider Web Punches for the borders of each panel.

I also added some Stickles and Glossy Accents for added detail.


The fun ribbon is 3 Girl JAM Crinkle Ribbon in Witches Brew, Sunflower Yellow, and Harvest Orange

This Hop is two days (Saturday, September 1 and Sunday, September 2), and on each day you will see different banners. Be sure to visit on both days to see the truly inspirational work of these generous bloggers, and leave some love (comments) on as many sites as you can – because if you do, you can up your chances to win some Spooktacular blog candy, including from these sponsors:
