     Another fun Halloween piece that I created using a few found objects, like the skeleton and owl, and numerous Tim Holtz items.  The background of the 6"x6" 7 gypsies shadow box is covered with Regions Beyond paper and the various compartments are filled with ephemera, fragments, and various apothecary vials.  We have really enjoyed this piece displayed on an easel on our dining room table.  I hope you enjoy this piece too.

     Thanks for stopping by and I hope you come again.

More Halloween cards made with the Tim Holtz "Bird Crazy" stamp collection.  So much fun to play with and lots of opportunity to get creative.  Think I've finally gotten things figured out about using Picasa on my iPad along with Blogspot.  Now I just have to remember how to use it the next time I want to blog. LOL


I don't post very often, so it always seems like a new learning experience and I'm never quite sure how things will turn out.  kind of like Trick or Treat!  I made a couple of Halloween cards with the Tim Holtz "Bird Crazy" stamp collection for a niece and nephew in California.  They were fun to make and I hope the kids enjoy them.  I hope you enjoy them too.


     Guess it's about time that I blog about my October tag since it's all about Halloween.  I didn't have any of the new monster dies, so I used the skull with a top hat stamp from the Tim Holtz "Undertaker" collection which I colored with Distress Ink.  I cut out the eyes and layered them with glittery black card stock.  I also used the same card stock for the top hat and highlighted it it with my white Molotow pen.    The tag was covered with a scrap of Regions Beyond paper which just happened to have Poe in the top corner, which I thought was pretty cool.  I also used a piece of Halloween ribbon and attached a skull charm to the hat.  I plan to enter this on the Tim Holtz website at
