Spooky or Just Plain Freaky


.....or just plain FREAKY....you decide.

In the words of my son, " Whoa! That freaked me out!"

Do you need a close up of the eyes to decide?:)

I hope you can join us this week at Stamptacular Sunday Challenge where we are looking for SPOOKTACULAR Projects.

This week we have TWO sponsors!
Our first sponsor this week is: Digital Stamp Oasis
The Prize is 5 digital images of winner's choice.

Our second sponsor this week is Simon Says Stamp
The Prize is....

I hope that you'll play along! Check out some really cute ideas from the Design Team and leave them some love.

My project uses Lauren's My Timeless Template called Around Town Tote. I used the mini version for my little treat bag. My little "skully" was created by stamping the skull twice and cutting out the eyes on one. I just added the googlie eyes after drawing in the bloodshot appearance. I then create a piece that could slide in between the 2 skulls. I put dimensionals where I wanted my little pull to start and stop. The paper is just colored with Copics to resemble the glow of the inside of a pumpkin. I then layered each skull on top of the other. Those aren't the greatest directions. Maybe I'll work on a mini tutorial to show what I mean at a later date.


The winner of the MAKE A CHILD SMILE Challenge is.....

I hope you raise more money than your goal! I have sent a donation.

Well Christine, I DID raise more than my goal thanks to so many wonderful people. I have decided to leave the donate button up until the end of the month in case someone wanted to donate and didn't get a chance.

Congrats to the lucky winners. I will be contacting you for some information soon!

Have a great Sunday!

Congratulations to the winners. I'm sorry I didn't win but what was much more important then the prizes was the wonderful donations. What a good friend you are to Priscilla and I'm so pleased you reached more than your target. How is she? Please e-mail me if you prefer rather than comment on my blog. I have candy, nothing like yours but I'd love you to enter. Marianne (October guest DT) x.
