Okay so it doesn't really hurt, but it looks like it does! I had kids and adults asking me all night long if this was real! Yeah, who stitches something like that up with nails??? Anywho I had a bunch of fun having people stare at it and little kids shy away because of the gruesomeness of it all. Ingredients: Vaseline and cornstarch, mix till putty forms, and use makeup for effects!

Here are a few pictures of some super simple goodies I made for my Kids teachers.. I hope you all have a safe and fun Halloween!!

Problem Solved!

Okay so you know that little fake skin problem I was having.. Well I figured it out and boy did I get my DH good!! I mixed up some Vaseline and cornstarch made it into this super fun to play with paste and applied a huge glob of it to my hand. I then proceeded to cover it with Halloween makeup and made it look really bruised and gross! I was searching and searching for my fake blood when I just decided to go for the good old standard- Ketchup. I slit open my "wound" and applied some ketchup.. I then went downstairs to where my DH was playing nicely on his xbox 360 and went into the back storage room where I pretended to be looking for something when all of a sudden I hit the wall really hard and started calling for him very frantically.. He came running and boy was the look on his face priceless. He really thought I'd been wounded until I started laughing.. A little cruel, I admit- but it was really good. I failed however, to get a picture of it cuz it was scaring my little one so I showed her how fun it was to take it all off..

I need Skin!

Fake Skin that is...
Okay so the whole story- In 6Th grade my teacher made this super cool putty like "fake skin" I'm pretty sure it was made with Vaseline and possible flour or cornstarch. She tinted it with makeup to make it look like flesh. Well I'm in search of that recipe, I've found a few online and tried them but I guess on Monday I will have to run out and buy some Vaseline and try some more. I'm so obsessed with finding this recipe and making it that I even looked through my old year books for proper spelling of her name and tried looking her phone number up.. Yes ladies, I admit it, I was going to call and seriously ask her for the recipe..
Okay so it didn't work, I couldn't find her number.. Thank goodness I don't want to be perceived as crazy. So if anyone has any suggestions or recipes you want to share drop me a line...

Okay so I hope I'm not bragging but I am so overloaded with NEW STUFF that I can hardly contain myself and I just want to show it to someone...
Okay so the next few photos are of all the new things that I have accumulated in the last week!
You all know that I went to CKC in Kansas and boy did I get some fun things there, I also came home to 2 SU orders patiently awaiting and then I went out shopping today with my sister. So whats in all this you ask?? Weeeellllll-
2- lisa bearnson scrapbooks complete with stamps and everything else you need to finish the WHOLE THING!! 2- CK Scrapbooks again complete with EVERYTHING to finish the album, this is my way to scrapbook!!
1 free Scrapdaddy tote!!, Free boxes (to ship 12x12 pages in), Chipboard Clipboard, DCWV pack from Joanns, for $19.99 it has a tote 8x8 scrap pack an album and an entire box of cut out colored chipboard pieces!, I also got another 12x12 scrap pad pack same design for $11.99, A Green Crop-a-dile, this was received on pure bribery!! I am so lucky, at the crop in Kansas I was bribed to make an announcement to all the ladies with this, I also got a Paper Crafts Mag too! (not shown), SU Punch, Stamps paper, and ribbon. Some Pioneer adhesives, the lady at their booth was so nice when I went over to ask if I could have some empty boxes as they were packing up she handed me all the left over adhesives that she had! I got another great stamp and 7 or 8 bottles of stickles..May arts ribbon, basic grey paper packs, some sports paper and dog paper from Joann's, a fun card I made at the Archiver's booth, some darling ribbon, eyelets and buttons too!!

Do you see the little face behind the boxes?? That's my Bailey peeking through, you can't blame a girly for trying!!

Just a quick post and then I'm off....

I tried posting these cards last night, but something wasn't working. So I'm posting quickly this morning before I head to Kansas!! These are the start of my Christmas cards, I think they turned out super cute and I can't wait to get them sent out when the time comes..

I used some DP from last years catalog and new old olive 5/8 grosgrain ribbon, I also used some pretty may arts ribbon. Each card is a little different to use up what supplies I have on hand. Have a great day, I hope to post some CK-news on Friday!

Okay so I know that I haven't been posting regularly lately, so I've come to the conclusion that I'm at least going to post once a week at least. I've got to set a goal somewhere!
This "friend" word book was cut using a Pazzle and pale plum cs. I stamped it using baroque motifs and close to cocoa ink. I used chocolate chip cs to back and sponged the edges to give some more definition to the letters. I also adhered some flower gems from the Target $1 spot and tied it with retired SU ribbon.
I tried taking the picture outside today using Beate's tips but I think my choice of placement was off, the background is really white though it looks blue..
