Okay enough of this old crock running on today over at Creative Inspirations its the lovely Jennies,turn and she has choosen Hallowean. Jennie is also offering,5 of her digital images,too the winner,how cool is that ,plus we also have the somoddgirl as our other sponsers this week.  I used this image from and came up with this. I have no hallowean images,so I choose this digital image from called spiderella how cool is she.

Colored with pro markers,Papers from my stash,string,to look like cobweb,faux stiching in white pen,ribbon,skeloton charm,then stamped 2 bats,and cut out. Adhered with silicone glue.
Now for something kinder spooky oh my gosh not sure what you are all going to think of this he he,I got the torso again from the Craft Barn,cut out the centre filled it with,paper then added well take a look.

papers,7 Gypsies from craft emporium,skeletons,from a shop near us,cotton wool and glossy accents,for like cobwebs,broomstick made from a twig,and string,rub ons,7 gypsies,images on side graphic 45 alice in wonderland. Nuts are from hubbies,tool box,painted and also had paper stuck onto them,then sanded them to look rusty. Stamped again the bats,and stuck to torso.
When my other half came in tonight he said exact words what the bloooooooo hell is that,you completley lost your marbles. Ha ha so really look forward too seeing what you al think.
Just before i go can I just say I do not live anywere near the Craft barn only wish I did. I use the website all the time,he he I live hundreds,of miles away from any type of craft shop well proper one anyway.  So if you want to pop over to the CRAFT BARN or the CRAFT EMPORIUM,link is HERE.
