Day 31 of the 31 Days of Halloween Blog Hop

Well my Horrifying Hoppers, the time has come.  Today is the last day of our month long hop.  I can't believe it has been a whole month already.  Man, I guess it's true what they say...Time flies when you are having fun.

Before I show you what I have created for today, I have to say Happy Birthday to my wonderful hubby.  Yep, he's a Halloween baby.  He turns 36 today!  He's edging closer to the age I am now..lol  Happy Birthday honey.  I love you!

So, I had 6 images that I wanted to use, but didn't have enough days to use them.  So, I decided at the last minute to make a little 5x5 chipboard book.  My idea was bigger than the time I had available.  I still have to go back and do some embellishing, but I have the basics done.

This is kind of a long post so grab a cuppa and get comfortable.

This is the first page using a Delicious Doodles image that I won earlier in the Scavenger Hunt.  I used Crayola colored pencils and OMS.  The paper is from a piece of Teresa Collins collage paper that I cut apart, inked and added randomly.  The sentiment says, "Blue eyes can be very deceptive.  We can be sweet as as blue summer sky, but make sure you run if they turn dark and stormy."

The backside of this page is an image from Jade Draggone.  I used the same coloring medium but added some Glossy Accents to the lantern.
I haven't come up with a sentiment for this one yet.  My brain was getting tired. :)

Page 3 uses  another image from Jade Draggone.  I used alcohol markers on this one.  I fussy cut her out and inked the edges with DI Vintage Photo.  The sentiment says, "Don't ever let anyone make you feel like you have to fit a mold.  You are an individual! You are special just the way you are.  Don't change just to please someone else!"  The paper is from Recollections.

Page 4 uses a Heather Valentin image colored with alcohol markers.  The papers are from DCWV and the sentiment reads, "Everyone needs that one friend who loves you regardless.  Nothing can break the bond of that friendship!!"

Page 5 uses a RSD image and a Teresa Collins paper. This beautiful lady is colored with Crayola colored pencils and OMS.  She's fussy cut and inked with DI Vintage Photo.  Sentiment is, "Always listen to yourself.  You don't always need someone else to give you advice.  You are your own best advice giver!"

And, Page 6 is another RSD image.  I love this witch.  I colored her with Crayola and I am a heavy handed colorer, so I used a kneadable eraser to remove some of the black on her dress.  This one uses DCWV paper and the sentiment says, "Some days you just have to let your inner witch out!"

Tomorrow I am going to try and make the covers for this book and put it together.  But, whenever I do get it finished, I am going to post the completed book. 

I just wanted to say THANK YOU to every one of you who left comments on my blog these past 31 days.  Your wonderful comments kept me going when I wanted to throw in the towel.  I truly appreciate the time that you spent looking at my creations.  I have had such a wonderful time making these "out of my comfort zone" creations and sharing them with all of you.  I have "followed" I think all of the Wicked Bloggers blogs.  I want to make sure that I keep up with what all of you are creating.  I have my favorite artists, as all of us do, and I don't want to lose track of y'all.  I have learned so much this past month and have an arsenal of ideas to try in the upcoming months.  Because of this blog hop, I am now a Stampin' Up Demonstrator and am starting a new avenue in  my life.  I hope I can make it succeed, but if not, hey, a discount on Stampin' Up is always good, right.

Make sure to stay tuned to Terra's blog in the next few days for the remaining winners of the Scavenger Hunt as well as the grand prize winner...Oh I so want to win...my daughter wants the pj's..LOL.  Take care, stay well and keep on cranking out those amazing projects.!!
