Monster Mash Blog Hop

Welcome to the Monster Mash Blog Hop Day #2!

I was working in the lab, late one night
When my eyes beheld an eerie sight
For my monster from his slab, began to rise
And suddenly to my surprise
He did the mash, the monster mash
It was a graveyard smash!

Let's get this Monster Party started!

I thought I would share two projects with you today!

I love these pictures on my youngest son, Joseph, from Halloween 2010.  He was in an Elmo stage, and he just made the cutest little Elmo!  Everything on this layout is stuff I had in my stash, and the "October 31" stamp in the bottom left corner is a Teresa Collins stamp that I used black embossing powder on, then set with my heat gun.

I really used up some of my stash, because all this stuff was stash stuff, too!  The patterned papers were given to me by my friend Barbara when I went to visit her in Kansas City last year.  The candy corn strip is Recollections Bling on a Roll, the gems are remnants, the "Boo" in the upper right corner is from a piece of washi tape that I cut, and the sentiment is from the BugBites set "Magic Spells."

Up next is the lovely and talented Robin L!
