31 DAYS OF HALLOWEEN - DAY 18

Hello Peeps,
I am here today with my creation for DAY 18 of the 31 DAYS of HALLOWEEN BLOG HOP .

Today I  have Page 8 of my Album to show you.  I have used " Lady Raven " from KENNY K. (It appears they are no longer trading).
I made a flower and used some of my precious 31st Oct ribbon that a friend kindly sent me :-D. I also made a die cut ornate corner in black card.
I'm pretty sure that the background paper is from PATACAKES PAGES

31 DAYS OF HALLOWEEN - DAY 17

Hello Peeps,
I am here today with my creation for DAY 17 of the 31 DAYS of HALLOWEEN BLOG HOP . I must say that this month is really flying past !!!

Today I  have Page 7 of my Album to show you.  I have used " Spider Girl " from  A DAY FOR DAISIES. I coloured her with Copics - unfortunately my Flesh coloured ones virtually dried up half way through :-( .
The background for her is embossed card with a spider web design from Stampin' Up, enhanced with some black ink.  The other embellies are from my stash.

31 DAYS OF HALLOWEEN - DAY 16

Hello Peeps,
I am here today with my creation for DAY 16 of the 31 DAYS of HALLOWEEN BLOG HOP and I've finally caught up with my Posts although I am waaaay behind with my commenting but I can sit quietly and do that later :-)

Today I  have Page 6 of my Album to show you.  I have used Flying Hearts image by Smeared Ink (no longer trading). My background is coloured card with torn edges and some plastic netting from a fruit bag, and some stamped netting on blood spattered card :-D . I used fibres and flowers from my stash to decorate.

31 DAYS OF HALLOWEEN - DAY 15

Hello Peeps,
I am here today with my creation for DAY 15 of the 31 DAYS of HALLOWEEN BLOG HOP and I've finally caught up with my Posts although I am waaaay behind with my commenting but I can sit quietly and do that later :-)

Today I  have Page 5 of my Album to show you.  I have used the main image  " WITCHY MOU " by  IKEsART and placed her on a bat background paper which is called ' Bats' by Chemical Bomb.  I've had the bat paper for ages and I can't find anything about them or a link or nothing.  ** I don't recommend searching the Web using  just that name either !!!!  ***  :-D

Then I added a little sponge kitty..... or what's that stuff called ???? Not sponge but thin, rubbery like stuff you can die cut ??


So now I am back on track - YaY !!!

31 DAYS OF HALLOWEEN - DAY 13

Hello Peeps,
I am here today with my creation for DAY 13 of the 31 DAYS of HALLOWEEN BLOG HOP. I am going a little bit Darker and starting to make an Album. 

At least not having internet access for 4 days allowed me to get well ahead with making my pages for this Album :-D
This is the 3rd of the inside pages.


This image is from IKEsART and is called " I GIVE YOU MY HEART ". 
I used black and red card and a die cut Doily for the backing. The strip of ribbon is from my stash and I made the Tag in Photodraw using the 'Blood' Font.

31 DAYS OF HALLOWEEN - DAY 12

Hello Peeps,
I am here today with my creation for DAY 12 of the 31 DAYS of HALLOWEEN BLOG HOP.

I had such an annoying weekend. At 3 pm on Friday my Internet and Telephone line just cut out. No buzzing or anything and no warning :-( 
After checking that one of my many Cats hadn't pulled out the plug or ate through anything I did a manual check of all wiring but found no problem.
Obviously the telephone people were then shut until Monday, so I stomp down there first thing yesterday to be told that it was a line fault and it would be fixed hopefully within 2 days.
I was still down in Town when the engineer rang to say he was at my house !!!!!!!
Anyhoo - he comes in with a brand new Router in a box and starts to plug it all in without even checking the line !!!   When I questioned this, he said " Oh, no - it's the fact that you need this new free Router because we have changed the system over to voice recognition (or something like that !) and you must have this new system. !!!!!!!    
Grrrrrrrr - well then why not telephone or message me and tell me that instead of just letting my old Line fade away to bugger all when I have no knowledge of the update !!!!!
I mean...... WTF !!!!

So .... deep breath and am now going to play Catch-up with my 31 DOH creations and hope I can still qualify :-(

This is the 2nd of the inside pages.

I have used IKEsART - " POE SKULL BUST ", placed onto a couple of die cut shapes. The background paper is from Smeared Ink (no longer trading). The lace and button are from my local shop, and the little Bat charm was from China :-)

31 DAYS OF HALLOWEEN - DAY 11

Hello Peeps,
I am here today with my creation for DAY 11 of the 31 DAYS of HALLOWEEN BLOG HOP. I am going a little bit Darker and starting to make an Album. This is the first of the inside pages.
I managed to buy some thin magnets this morning so that is what I am going to use for the closure mechanism :-D

I have used 2 images from LEIGH SNAITH-BRAINTON DESIGNS Etsy Bootique.
The main image is " ODE TO POE ", and behind him is " POE LOVE ". 
The background papers are from Smeared Ink (no longer trading). I made a black paper concertina strip and attached a flower from my stash. The feathers were kindly donated by my chickens :-D

31 DAYS OF HALLOWEEN - DAY 10

Hello Peeps,
I am here today with my creation for DAY 10 of the 31 DAYS of HALLOWEEN BLOG HOP. I am going a little bit Darker today and starting to make an Album. I've never done this particular way before but I found a cool instruction but can't remember whose Blog I say it on (sorry) !

So far I have covered it with a paper from SENECA POND CRAFTS. They have tons of Freebies on there but I have bought some gorgeous papers and tags etc. there too :-D 
Here is the Set I bought and am using for the start of this Album. #1989 ALTERED HALLOWEEN MASON JAR TAG BOOKLET & TICKETS SET.


I edged the cover paper by sponging on black ink and have stuck my cover piece on. Having done that I think I should have finished the inside covers first but hey - it's on there now LoL !!  :-D

Here is it before the front piece....


here it is in it's 'naked' form...


Here is the set I bought from SENECA POND CRAFTS....



I am going down to the Town tomorrow so I hope to find some magnets or some of those Velcro closure thingies to keep it shut. If not I will have to use ribbons or something before I cover the inside of the cover.

Hopefully I can then make a page a day, which will keep me occupied for a while Hahaha   I don't know whether to make sections for journaling or pockets for Tags etc. yet. I haven't decided.
