Day 9 of 12 Days of Creepmas: DICC with Dilly Beans

Greetings! I'd like to thank those of you that sent well wishes to my daughter for her Birthday. Today is another momentous's my son's birthday! That's right. Both kids...within 2 days of each other, 1 week before Christmas. Go. Me. My boy is 7, and I can hardly stand it! Why must it go so fast??? But on to why you are really here. My 9th Creepmas project!

I made this for the latest Desert Islands Crafters Challenge. Yup. I am 2 days late. But during this crazy week, I am lucky if anything gets made! As per usual, you need to use at least 3 things from the given itinerary. I used #'s 1, 2, 3, 4, 8, and 10. To see the itinerary, please visit the DICC Blog. We are sponsored by Dilly Beans this time, hence the choice of this image.

I colored Halloween Framed Skellie 2 with my alcohol markers. My snowflake punch is yet another one from Martha Stewart's pretty-damn-awesome line. I hate how much I love her punches. The glittery goodness is an Ice Stickles. The Baker's Twine is from The Dollar Spot at Target.

Please be sure to visit the rest of the DICC team, as well as all of the Jolly Bloggers, listed in my side bar.

Happy Birthday to my very handsome boy! I am so proud of you, Phoenix!
