"Fun-Mare" Before Halloween Blog Hop


Mwhahahahaaaa...VELCOME, VELCOME, pull up a coffin and stay awhile!

Are you ready for another Halloween Blog Hop...you know I am.  I have emerged from my mad scientist dungeon and created some goulish delights for you.  But we need to make sure your haunt is headed in the right direction...please float over HERE to begin your decent into the darkness.  If you are creeping in from Melanie's creepy creation then you are in the right cemetary.  Velcome to my Crypt!

Let's start by SHAKING things up with this Shaker Card, Easel style.  Yep, I made my first shaker card.  Instead of glitter bits or bug guts I used crawly ants that squirm around when you shake this card.  This Wicked Witch is Lylah brand new from Tickled Pink Stamps.  I've been DYING to show her off but I had to wait for her to make her debut.  Click HERE to buy her and her Lil Haunts Creepy Friends.  The sentiment is a Scrappy Moms Stamps set, Haunting we will Go and as a part of thier DT I use them on most of my cards!  Click HERE to get your own set and check out what's coming out!  All the DP I am using you can shop for HERE at SCRAP HUT.  You can also pick up Scrappy Moms Stamps and My Pink Stamper Stamps when your shopping. 


The window is cut out at 4 1/2" with the Oct 31st cart, then I took out the center so you could see all of Lylah.  I doubled up on the dimensional strips, cut a piece of DP for behind Lylah and a piece of acetate for the front, added the plastic ants and SHAKE!



Project #2 Spooky Home Decor

Here's a quick, easy project that is fun to do with kids.  You'll need a fake pumpkin (Michaels), strips of gauze, glue, sponge brush and google eyes.  Dab a little glue on the gauze and layer, remembering to leave a little strip for the eyes. 


These small pumpkins are perfect for making mini Mummy Pumpkins.

My kids had a Halloween party and instead of goody bags the kids all made these to take home to haunt thier homes.  I used a hot glue gun and added the eyes.

Alright, you have made it this far in your journey.  And I'm sure I heard you say Trick or Treat.  Well, I'm all about treats.  I have a little something spooky I guess I could send you. 

All I need is you to leave behind a comment and your email address.  If you aren't fresh blood to my spooky blog then become a stalker and leave me a 2nd comment that you're new to my minions.  You don't have to but I would!   And if you want more, more, more like a Zombie looking for flesh, then click HERE to Stalk me on Facebook too.  There you will find more of what you are looking for, chat with me and my minions and post your projects for all to see.

Now, be gone with you before I keep you here forever.  Drag yourself to Shelley's blog for more horrific projects that will inspire the darkness to come out!

Just a little note before you go.  Pop over to Disguised as a Grown Up for a MAJOR HAUL of Blog Candy Goodies.  You don't have to "FOLLOW" her blog, YA YOU SHOULD just leave a comment.  I follow this blog everyday and it's one of my favorites.  This is where I learned all about Digi's!  Tell her I say Hi, EH!

Join us on this special Blog Hop.  Click HERE for the Facebook Event, post to your Wall and invite all your friends.  Feel free to grab this badge and show your support on your Blog.
