Spooktacular Challenge!

Hiya and Happy First of September!  Wowza, can you believe summer is at an end, school's back in session and the holidays will be coming sooner than you can say "BOO"!  The kids have school orientations tomorrow and then they start school next Tuesday after Labor Day--yay!  No I'm not evil, but after awhile they start picking on each other, fighting and making me CRAZY so I welcome a quiet house again during the school year.  But not the last minute stuff, forgotten school work, school activities and their many social activities that keep me running around like a crazy woman, lol!  But by May I'm always ready for summer again, hee hee!  Although this year I'm really dreading winter and praying that its not as bad as last year---or I am for sure moving south, far south, lol!  Right now our beaches are gearing up for Hurricane Earl but it looks like it might only be lots of rain and nothing else--but Alexandria and parts of DC always flood after a hurricane so it's never nice for a lot of folks, so I'll keep everyone in my thoughts as this storm pushes thru!  To those of you in the path of the hurricane, stay safe please!!

Alrighty, after staying up till 3 am to type this I'm gonna make it short and quick for ya so I can get to bed and you can do something else, lol!  (but as always thanks for taking a minute to stop by with me, hope you enjoy today)!


-Blog Candy still ongoing at this POST HERE!  Yesterday's post (scroll down) has 3 new Copic QuikBitz Videos I did on haircoloring if you want to check them out :)

-Paper Romance has all the BRAND NEW High Hope stamps by artist Laurie Furnell--check them out HERE cuz they are Ca-Ute!

Spooktacular Wishes!

Today is the first of the month so I've got a new Copic Creations Challenge project to share with you!  Our fabulous sponsor is Stamping Scrapping which is owned by sweet Cindy Echtinaw who I was lucky to meet at CHA and I'm their Bildmalarna Guest Artist this month too--yay--I'll have my first project & video up on Friday for ya on that!

And our challenge was to color fold/pleats on Magnolia images for you!  Make sure to stop by the Copic Creations Challenge Blog to see the rest of the DT's fab projects and info on how you can join in the challenge!  I also entered this in the Delightful Challenges challenge (which is to make a cute Halloween card)!

I chose one of my favorite Magnolia stamps from last year's So Spooky Collection (see all the Halloween stamps at Magnolia-licious HERE).  This cutie is called "Sitting Witch Tilda" and you can get her here (she will be in stock very soon)!  I used some fabulous new Halloween papers by My Mind's Eye called "Haunted" --I love the classic patterns on kraft and some of the papers are flocked!  The panel in the center is black cs that I punched with my MS cobweb border punch and then embossed it all with my Tim Holtz "wood grain" embossing folder.  The scrolls were done with my fave Marianne Designs dies (yes I do adore these and I MUST use them often, lol)--but this particular scroll has the cool pointy edges so they can be kind of spooktacular KWIM!  That fun sentiment circle is a set by PTI called "2009 Halloween Tags"--very cool set!  And I added some MS cobweb punches to the corners as well!

I used all my C Copics on this cutie (C9 thru C1) and the ground she's sitting on was done with W7,W5 & W1.  The brown accents were E57,E55,E53,E50!  Her boots and eyes got diamond glaze on them for shine and then I stickled up her bows and hat band for some fun bling!  I think she's just a super cutie--hope you like her too!

See ya tomorrow!
