Skelly Fun!

Happy Spooks Time!  I am getting into the Halloween spirit this year, and we have decorated the house and my studio looks like a pumpkin threw up in it. Usually my work tends towards sweet pastels, lace and pretty, but for the Halloween season I get to unleash the bad girl!  Black, orange, witches, spiders, spooks, skeletons....I love them all. 


 
Here is a spooky little girl that I created for a swap in my local Paper Soiree group. It all started with a package of skeltons from the dollar store. My cohost Lorraine sprayed them with glue and glittered them up with silver glitter. Each of the Paper Soiree members took one home to "dress up". The results were so much fun to see - some ladies brought their "ghouls" in coffins, I put mine on a spool pedestal and a couple of the skellies ended up in pink. They are were quite fabulous!

I hope you are all in the Spooky mood!  Happy Pink Skelly Saturday to my Pink Saturday visitors.  Have a great weekend!
