Creepies....

Hello everyone!  What a glorious day it is here in Missouri! 

We are on our way to the airport in just a few minutes to pick up our grand-doggie, Wimpy, who is flying in all the way from Los Angeles, to spend a few weeks, or perhaps a few months with us!  His 'dad' has to be in and out on travels to many places over the next few months, and none of us could stand the thought of his being in a kennel that long.  So, pops and I are grand-doggie sitting!  I'll be sure to snap a photo or two.  He's a beautiful white shepard/husky mix, and we just adore him.

Anyway, I wanted to take a moment to share a fun and very quick project with you!  (Sorry Bonnie....poor Bonnie is counting the days until Halloween is OVER...lol)

This is a die cut from Creative Cuts and More.  I literally folded on the pre-scored lines, assembled, and decorated!  Wow!  They have the best die cuts!  And if you go there and don't see what you are looking for, be sure to contact Terri, the owner, as there are probably hundreds or more that she has that are not on the website.




As for decor, I had these little spiders in my stash, pulled apart and sponged black ink on a cotton ball, used two $1 stamps from Michael's that I've had forEVAH, and the DP is from Echo Park's Apothocary Emporium Collection, and was a gift from my friend, Shirley.  Found the eyeballs at Walgreens, and couldn't resist them!

That's it for today!  We've had a productive weekend - got lots accomplished, found DH a new cell phone, had dinner with one of my sis's and her DH, got to talk to DD a couple of times, got to talk to DS a couple of times, AND the Cardinal's won game 2 of the World Series.  Life is pretty good!!!

I almost forgot!  The winner of the extra magazine is #1, Becky Dunham!!!  That never ever happens - #1 is almost never a winner - Congratulations to Becky!!!  Email me with your mailing address :)  I'll get it out tomorrow!

Hope that things are well in your little corner of the world!

Thanks for dropping by to see my creepy creation.  When we get in this evening, I will try to visit all of you!

Hugs and blessings,
Patti J.

Oh I LOVE it - perfect for a fun Halloween. And the eyeballs look perfect in the coffin!!! Great job and the die cut is "to die for" - no pun intended. I guess I am going to have to send in a order soon to get some of their stuff. I have enjoyed everything you have created using her dies.

I keep seeing those eyeballs and have to laugh-it fits with the coffin. You did a great job with being our guest this month. Hope you will come again and be one.

OMG ... more of those ugly 'eyeball chocolates"!!! Admittedly, the box is quite unique and cute but it's still HALLOWEEN!!! Yes, and there are only 8 more sleeps until Halloween is OVER!

Lucky puppy that Wimpy is, to be able to spend time with you and your hubby, Patti. Hope you have as good a time with him as I know he will have with you.
