These sweet little girls are from a sheet of Jenni Bowlin paper. Super cute with giant bow on her head. I layered them over some polka dot paper and gave them a nice little chipboard frame. A few more holiday embellishments to finish it off.
Not your typical Halloween colors…but I just love the combination of blue and black. The raven image is from Graphics Fairy. I actually managed to get 6 layers of paper here. Yay me : ) The polka dot is one of my favs from Jenni Bowlin. I typed the sentiment with my handy dandy manual typewriter. I love how uneven and smudgy it looks…just like a real vintage typeset would be. there’s a bit of fancy ribbon donated by good friend Kim. I topped it off with some fun velvety black flowers and a bow!
Okay…so I’m all in the mood for Halloween now that I’ve visited Screams ice cream shop. I was inspired to make this fun card today with an image from Graphics Fairy. I added tons of layers of paper, then accented it with some great little vintage finds from Jenni Bowlin Mercantile. Love this chipboard button and spooky bingo card. The glittery black cat and stars finish off this card purfectly. : )
Went last night with the Boy Scouts to play mini golf in Hell. What?????? Yes…there is a Hell Michigan. And it happens to be right around the corner from where we live in Pinckney. I know a million jokes are going through your head right now. It happens to everyone when they hear it. Turns out that Hell has is a small little village with a lot going for it. They have lot’s of races for one. The Boy Scouts get to do a lot of fundraising to help direct traffic for these huge events! They also have some nice little restaurants. They also have Screams. Until last night I had not been inside. I thought it was just an ice cream shop-mini golf center. But here is what awaits for those fortunate to go inside! I love love love this place!!!! Look at this fun display. Reminds me of a scary chicken coop.
Last but not least….Screams is an ice cream shop. Let me just tell you how good it smelled. The very nice Diane had just made a fresh batch of waffle cones. Insert drooling moment now! lol. This fun display is actually a topping bar. Okay…truth be told…this place had me at “topping Bar” lol. The rest of the shop was just the icing on the cake.
Some very happy scouts waiting for their treats!!! Lucky scouts : ) I will be going back with my shopping list. I’m sure Diane will help me get Polly’s into spooktacular shape!!! She was so nice….even with a store full of scouts! Thank you for all your help last night.
If you find yourself in Hell….stop in. Can’t hardly miss this building LOL. They also have a site you can visit….hell2u.com. Many great things to click on. You can even get many items from the shop online. I recommend going to the real shop though…it was so much fun to go to Hell.
P.S. See that tiny door on the left side of the blue door??? My BFF Heather said it was the door for me ( I am really a very short person in real life you see) and made me go through it. I would be upset…except that I think I overheard her and Kenny conspiring to get me a huge cat display that looks like Polly for my birthday next month! I’m not letting on that I know…so as not to ruin the surprise : )
Enjoying a a day off from the shop here today and I’m happy to report that we are getting a little break from our heat wave. So nice to have the windows open!!! I did spy these two cranes in the back yard. Our grass is really crispy and dry from all the heat…but they don’t seem to mind.
These are steak house mini loves. You know the kind that taste so good with honey butter? For the first picture…I just placed them in the bowl without cutting into one and it looked just like a bowl of potatoes LOL. Take two…cut one open and show the inside…it’s gets it’s color from coffee powder and unsweetened cocoa and honey. It does sound a little odd…but believe me…the are soooo tasty!!! : )
This is our dinner. Alex had to have his early so he could go to practice. I’ve been utilizing the crock pot a lot now that I seem to be at work a lot. We have also been hiking…so we don’t get home until later in the evening. I cook something gimongous on Monday and split it up into several meals that are different….but with similar ingredients so we don’t get bored. Today I made sweet Italian sausage (from Costco) with crushed stewed Italian tomatoes. I also sauteed up some red pepper and onion, and just ladled some of the tomato “sauce” over top then added a little Parmesan cheese. Tomorrow it will be hoagies????
Lily is chillaxin too. Trying to camouflage herself on the rug so she can ambush anyone unfortunate enough to walk by without paying attention. The other two are hiding out somewhere…most likely recovering from having a big Boy Scout sleep over this week.
Treasure waiting for me in the mailbox. Thank you Mailman : ) I will be enjoying these later when we get back from tennis meeting. DH will be playing euchre on his phone…it’s a nice evening to sit outside and have a pale ale and enjoy this country life.

Here are some sweet little spots I have linked to today. Stop by for a spell and check out all the great ideas!
I was working today on the sweet kit. I picked out all the ingredients last night to whip up some great little projects . A little of this…a little of that. Guess I didn’t realize that I went a little overboard. That is so like me. If a little is good…then a lot must be better right? LOL . When my girlfriend Carol came in I told her I was thinking that I might just post them in the Etsy shop without a collage of project ideas. That did not go over well LOL. So here’s for Carol….lot’s of crafty goodness : )
