For my project today I used the super CA-UTE Chasezilla!! He's just the most adorable thing ever!! I colored him with Copics on X-Press It Blending Card.

Eyes/Eyebrows: E47, E44
Suit: G21, G24, G28, YR21, YR22

I was inspired by a frame I saw in Pinterest. I'm always pinning stuff to my boards every day, but generally I don't have to time to make anything from it.....sound familiar?!?! Well, this time I decided to put all that pinning to use!! For my projected today, I used a really cheap wood frame from Walmart. I covered the top of the frame with different sizes of googly eyes that I found at Hobby Lobby. Then I dry embossed some green cardstock with Cuttlebug Tiny Bubbles. I cut out different circles from the green paper and glued them on randomly. To bring out some of the texture I rubbed a little black ink over certain parts.

The cute Halloween ribbon came from Michaels. I also found this awesome Martha Stewart felt spider web trim at Michaels too. 
I hope you liked my Halloween Frame!! I will say it took forever to glue down all those googly eyes....which is why I only did half the frame, LOL! Now, don't forget to come by and "like" our Facebook Fan Page, so you can stay up-to-date, get your challenge reminders, and share your stuff!! Please join us in our challenges too.....we would love to see your beautiful cards/projects!

Have a great week and see you here soon!

Love & Hugs!!

Only 72 days til Christmas?! Wow, that'll pass before you know it. Not that I am complaining though. I LOVE Christmas (that's my favourite time of the year). :D Would you believe that I have already bought one and half Christmas presents? I'd like to think I'm being organized, but knowing me, I will start early and then for the rest I'll just do some last minute shopping. *sigh*
I love Pinterest too, but I am not on the site every day. Not yet anyway, because I don't have time. But once things calm down a bit, I think I'll be there much more. ;)
I think these eyes have been really polular recently. I've seen many people using them. But I have never seen them used the way you did on your frame. Very clever idea. And it looks good too. :)
Hugs! xx
