TSG Home Sweet Home Halloween Additions Blog Hop!

Friday, September 25, 2009

Welcome to the Haunted House....ooops! I mean the Home Sweet Home Halloween Additions Blog Hop!!

This is your second last stop on the hop and if you've swung by here via the super lovely Maki Jones's blog, then you're on the right track. And if you haven't, but would like to play along on this frightful and delightful hop, then head over to the TSG blog to begin the scary ride there.

This brand new Home Sweet Home Halloween Additions set is fangtastic!! hehe (I couldn't help myself!) It contains over 40 images to mix and match and play with in addition to the Home Sweeet Home set.

This scene is almost identical to what you'd have found at our old house during the month of October. Except we didn't have skulls in our fireplace! Candles are less creepy! Haha Can you tell I love Halloween yet?! LOL So it should come as no surprise that I really, REALLY love this additions set. It has everything you need to create a spooktacular fireplace scene (except the fireplaces themselves, which are in the HSH set). I used NINE stamps in this scene...can you spot them all?! I'll give you a hint: One is hiding under the mantel. :)

The image was colored again with reinkers and an aquapainter brush. I then matted it with two tones of orange cardstock and then, because I don't own the square scalloped nestibilities, I used my Marvy square scalloped punch (remember those paper weights?!) to punch out enough scallops to complete the scalloped frame behind the image. Time consuming, but it's a way around the issue if you lacking these nesties in your collection. :) That YUMMY paper is from Making Memories, which I found at Michaels. Oh and if you click on the image, you might see the drippy goo punch I used beneath the ribbon...really hard to see on this layout, but I HAD to use it! LOL The sentiment is cut out using the Spellbinders Labels Trio set and sponged with Pumpkin Pie and Vintage Photo while still in the template.

Ok, I'm now sending you on your lovely way to the fabulously funny and talented Wendy Bond's blog! Enjoy!
