Too Cute 2 Spook

Wow, I think this might be my 3rd post for the day! I spent ALL day crafting today!  That does not happen very often.  Today was special because.....I didnt have to work last night (yay), the house is clean and laundry is done (double yay) and it rained all day long!!! Perfect recipe for doing nothing all day but CRAFTING!!

Ok, so this is what I made this afternoon.  It is a Halloween picture frame.  Peachy Keen Stamps is having a challenge to create a layout or project using the themes Autumn, Halloween, or Harvest.  The catch is that it cannot be a card.......what???? Yup, thats right.  

Simon Says Stamp! is having a challenge based on .......yup, Halloween!  
And Paper Playtime's challenge is all about the bling (ribbons, buttons, or rhinestones).

So here it is...
I used a lot of different elements for this.
Added my bling (orange rhinestones all over).

I embossed the tree to give it that shiny look. Also used the violet Puffy marker to give it those furry/mossy looking patches all over. 

For my heading, I used 3D paint to give it a little more dimension. Plus dont forget the bling.

My lit' monster also got the violet Puffy marker.  It almost looks like fur. I hope you guys can see this.  Also used the yellow 3D paint for the yellow spots.  LOVE dimension!

Used my Peachy Keen stamp for him and for my moon.  Don't have a large collection yet, so I didn't have too much to choose from. My son asked why the ghost looked scared when he's the ghost??  ummm, good question.
