The Nights Are Drawing In-HDH Macabre Monday

When thinking of the September challenge at HDH, The Nights Are Drawing In, I automatically go to my favorite night of the Hallowe'en season.  No, not the 31st.  Our annual party, Hallowicked!  Hallowe'en is big for me, and starts in September in my home.  I've thrown this particular party for 11 years this year.  It's been BIG, it's been small, but I'll keep throwing it as long as people keep coming.

I've been working on a 12x12 scrapbook of past Hallowickeds for a while now.  I decided to enter one of my favorite pages from said book.

 Here it is.  I love the layered crazy look of it.  I used one 12x12 patterned paper as a base, the a smaller piece of solid color on top.  I ripped the solid piece, drug the edges along an ink pad, and used a blood splatter cling stamp set for some more red.  A few of my regulars adorn this page, who've made it almost every year.
 I made that tree myself.  Being that actual drawing eludes me, I felt pretty fancy here.
 These webs I made by cutting up a bigger felt web I got in a pack of webs at the 99cents store last year.  Neat little Happy Halloween die cut there.
I've had this bauble type bat sticker for a while now.  So long I can't recall who made it.  If I had to guess, I'd say it was a Martha Stewart bat.  Hope you like it, thanks for looking!

Kenny K Challenge #197-Anything Goes!

Hi. I know, I'm never here anymore.  Did you notice? =P  I've actually made quite a few things recently, I just haven't posted them.  UNTIL NOW!

Here's my offering for the Kenny K Anything Goes challenge this week.

Kinda sexy, yeah?  I made him for a good friend of mine who's single, but not for lack of trying.  The right one for her just hasn't shown up yet, so I gave her this Playboy image from Kenny K's line. I had hoped to get him into last weeks guy twist challenge, but I failed.  I am working on my skin shading, and this was a perfect image being that he's mostly naked.  He does have on pants, but the illusion that he didn't works well for us horny old broads. 

I hope you like it, thanks for taking a look. I hope to be more of a presence here soon.
