Not Halloween: Day 10 of 31 Days of Halloween

Confused by my title? I can’t guarantee that you’ll be less confused after reading my post… So let’s just cut to the chase, shall we?


At first glance, you may think these photos were taken at Halloween, while my sisters and I are wearing our costumes… Think again. See the Christmas Tree in the background???

I believe these shots were taken in ‘07. And it’s just us…being ridiculous. I don’t remember the whole story… I think we were just rummaging through our old toy chest, and all of these wonderful goodies came out.


Sorry for the crummy pics…I am pretty exhausted this morning. You can click on any of them to get a bigger shot though. I stamped Happy Halloween all over the background and added a question mark. I also stamped stars. These are both from Cosmo Cricket. The “Epic” comes from the Smeared Ink set Teen Style Sayings. Speaking of Smeared Ink…did you know that there is a surprise from them today??? Better run over to Terra’s Blog if you haven’t already to get all the deets.


So technically, it’s NOT Halloween, but I made it into a Halloween type page…so it counts right??? ;}

Here’s what I wrote since it’s probably a bit hard to read in these photos. On the background cardstock it says:

“Nope. Not Halloween. Not even close…note the Christmas Tree in the background. Just me and my sisters being ourselves. Weird.”

On the checkerboard paper it says:

“Look for:

1. A war helmet

2. A dress from the 70’s.

3. A Sorcerer’s hat

4. Crochet doll’s dress

5. A Christmas Tree”

Can you find all of those things??? Good luck! ;} Please be sure to visit the rest of the Wicked Blogs, listed on my sidebar. And shhhhhh! Please don’t tell my sisters I put these pictures up! ;}

PS: Remember yesterday when I mentioned the Wild Flower Kids image I used reminded me of Pam? Well, she is wearing that costume here! Of course, she looked way cuter when she was 5, but at least you kind of get an idea of what I was remembering! ;}

Christmas Package

Hello! This week, the Stampendous Design Team will be sharing projects that fit the theme, "Dear Santa, I've Been Good!" I used the sweet Christmas Package stencil (which frankly, can be used for plenty of other occasions too!), and a scrap I had leftover from the Chevron Stencil. Check out the full tutorial below.

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!
