Halloween Blog Hop Starts Friday! And Some Cool Pics!

Click HERE to start the hop!

Hey everybody! I am going to be in another bog hop this week! This time it’s all about my favorite day of the year.. Halloween! I’ll be sharing some of my crafts, some photos, and probably a funny story or two… you know me, I love to tell a good story! And it seems that you guys like hearin’ ‘em so a HUGE “Thank you!” to all of you!!!

So you need to make sure you stop back here for the Halloween Hop, starting on Friday! I will of course have a list of all the stops. Yes, there will be some candy too! It couldn’t be Halloween without candy right?!?!?!

So, to help us get in to the “spirit” of things (yeah… like I need help with that!) Here is a brief walk down my memory lane… Enjoy!

Thing 1 and Thing 2. Ain’t that the truth! This is of course Gene and myself during my Fam’s Halloween Party. It happened to fall on our One Year Anniversary (which coincidentally, is tomorrow!). The Fam surprised us with this lovely cake! How ridiculously cute are we?!?!

Here I am iHalloween 2005 004n my “October Outfit.” I made this skirt several years ago…obviously, and I just love it. And it seems that I often have blue hair in October… strange, no? Actually, I like to do the opposite of what’s expected. Most would think that I’d do orange (which I have never actually done!)… so I like to go opposite. Check out your color wheels Peeps!

IMG_1715And this is last year. I am a very pregnant gypsy here. Phoenix is saying “Boo!” to the camera. He is a wizard. Gene is in his oh-so-handsome wedding ensemble. And yes, that is my beautiful PT Cruiser in the background. You may all stop to admire it’s fabulousness!!! C’mon! Zoom in to see the flames!!!

So that’s a little peek in to my Halloweens. I have so awesome pics to share with you during the hop. You’ll love ‘em!

My Colors Cardstock: Dare Devil, Parrot

Directions:

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
