31 Days of Halloween - Day 30

Happy day before Halloween!!  CAW CAW!!  We are almost to Halloween!!! We made it!!!

Vincent and I both say hello.  I am trying to get him to learn about the puzzle piece Alex has for us today, but can't get him to stop eyeballing the camera.  He keeps saying 'but I know they want to see my face'.  Can you see my level of being impressed?

Ok- onto the creation, this one you are going to love.  Honestly, Vincent should love it so not certain what his problem is - well I am, but pretty certain I would be censured.

I know, right?  The night sky, the jack-o-lantern, even the owl in the tree (although it would be better with a raven, the owl works).  Dang that Alex and her distress ink pads.  She really is getting some inky fingers and having fun.  There has been a big discussion here and she will be continuing the puzzle pieces into November and the assembled project.  However, she may not post daily.  I have also begged to be allowed to continue to host, and......she said YES!!  Only for the puzzle pieces, but hey, I can work with that.  AND NO VINCENT!  CAW, CAW!!!

Have fun checking out the creations from the rest of the Wicked Bloggers (list on the right sidebar) on this second to last day of the 31 Days of Halloween!

Happy Halloween!

31 Days of halloween - Day 29

Happy Wednesday to you - aka - Hump Day- right?  Halfway through the work week!  Mine too and as much as I am dreading the return to the cage, the relief from this mentoring gig is welcome.

Vincent and I would like to present to you another puzzle piece.  This one has been created to look like the wall paper that Alex would love having in a sitting room.  Alex has quite the sitting room designed in her head -and on Pinterest.  Wallpaper with this look, purple, sparkles and skulls, is exactly what she would like.

The background paper is from an older Kaisercraft collection and the skull image from Inkadinkado, and one of the earliest skull images she purchased, but still one of her favorites.

Have a fabulous hump day and jump on over to see the rest of the Wicked Bloggers, making it an even better day!

Happy Halloween!

31 Days of Halloween - Day 28

Today's post almost did not happen.  There were some ruffled feathers, and then, some ruffled feathers, if you know what I mean.  Vincent has decided he doesn't need to ask to wear my hats, that he can just take what he wants.  That resulted in a beat down, brawl, fight, tussle, discussion without much resolution at the moment.  I can say that Vincent has a new... shall we say respect, for me at this time and we are both counting down the days to his departure.

Now - onto why you are really here.  To see what Alex has created and we are sharing with you today!

This puzzle piece is a fun one with a family portrait to share.  Wouldn't it be great if all our walls had family portraits like this on them?  Sharing the skeletons in our closets with the world?  caw, caw :)

Have fun at the other Wicked Bloggers and leave them some love.  I know there is a lot of hard work being put into this for your viewing pleasure.  Excuse me while I deal with my student.

Happy Halloween

31 Days of Halloween - Day 27

Happy Monday to you!  I am already having an ....eventful day.  Oh, and do you see what you have done?  Do you see it?

How could you miss it really?  Vincent has decided that he must wear fancy dress hats -mine you know and now you will never see me in my full glory again.  Vincent takes up the entire frame except for that teeny tiny sliver there on the right.  I know, just tragic isn't it!?

OK- now that we have discussed the main issue of the day, onto Alex's creation to share.  This is another image from AuroraWings by Mitzi Sato-Wiuff.  The name of this image is Madness.

I know that Alex had a very enjoyable time coloring this image.  She really finds coloring to be relaxing -give her more of that please, the girl needs to relax!  She is currently attempting to work her way through the collection of images she already owns (Caw, caw, caw, caw... oh excuse me, I couldn't stop laughing at that one), but I am certain that more will be added to the list as she goes.

We are down to the final week of 31 Days of Halloween and I -and Vincent- have certainly enjoyed your company this month.  Time to check out the rest of the Wicked Bloggers listed on the side bar and their creations for today.

Happy Halloween!

31 Days of Halloween - Day 26

Good day, good day, good day!!!  I have a bit of a secret surprise for you today!!  Don't tell Alex though. She might lock me up early.  This is just between us.  First, though, what you came to see.  The creation Alex has for Day 26 of 31 Days of Halloween!

This is fun and spooky - yes those things can go together- puzzle piece today.  One of our furry friends is the main focus of this piece.  Can you guess which furry friend??????

Oh yes, that furry friend.  The one we only see in the light of the full moon. (doesn't that remind you of a romantic song of some sort- although I have no desire to look deeply into those eyes or kiss that mouth - CAW!)  What has been your favorite werewolf of all time?  Was it a scary one or a fun one?  Michael J. Fox in Teen Wolf -yes you young ones, there was a Teen Wolf before..., or Alex's favorite was Seth Green "Oz" in Buffy the Vampire Slayer. 

Now- for my TOP SECRET YOU DIDN'T SEE IT HERE surprise.
Caw, caw, caw.  For not preplanning which pieces were next to which it seems to be coming together without great mishaps. 

Now- time for visiting the rest of the Wicked Bloggers listed on the right sidebar.  I am super sad we are almost to the end of our 31 Days of Halloween, but also very very glad Alex didn't bow out of it.

Happy Halloween!

31 Days of Halloween - Day 25

It is SATURDAY!  Do you know what that means?  It is the weekend and that means no Vincent.  He has the weekend off!  Last weekend, I was not thrilled.  This weekend, I am welcoming the silence.  CAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAWWWWWWWWW.

We have today, for your viewing pleasure, another altered puzzle piece.  I think that later today, while Alex is occupied elsewhere, I am going to start putting together what has been completed for a teeny tiny sneak peak.  I'll try to sneak sharing it with you as well, if you want that is.

Oh yes, the collection of eyeballs.  Doesn't every self respecting Witch and Mad Scientist need a jar of eyeballs?  Or even a couple of jars???  Or a jar and a box?  Or a jar in the refrigerator?  or....
 Alex used Glossy Accents again to give the jar a glass look and sheen.  She does put it one very thickly when creating this look.  Good thing she is learning to let things dry before touching them (most of the time) and even better that fuzzball Vincent was not here to get his fluff stuck.

Have an absolutely amazing weekend.  I am headed for a nice quit nap followed by a special mission (wink, wink).  See you all later- after you have visited the rest of the Wicked Bloggers.

Happy Halloween!

31 Days of Halloween - Day 24

DAY 24?!?!?!  WHAT??!?!?  Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear.....

Ok - at the insistance of some of you all yesterday, I have allowed Vincent the use of one of my lovely hats.  You all asked for this remember.

Like he wasn't already taking up the entire frame, now... do you all see what you have done?  Oh yes, it gets worse.  Vincent is certain that you would like him to pose and share his entire glory with you.  I assured him that he was quite mistaken.  However, the tantrum that ensued was beyond endurance so here you are, you asked for it, you got it.  Vincent.
Vincent is looking quite dorky, ridiculous, pompous, dashing in his fancy dress today.  Don't you think?

Ok- back to the reason everyone is really here, Alex's creation!  and YES, it IS another puzzle piece.  SURPRISE!!! 
Alex and I had quite the fight argument debate discussion again regarding a gold tooth for the skull.  I am pretty certain that it is no longer a matter of being unable to find the pen.  I think she has hidden it.  I am now a raven with a mission.  I, Edgar Allen Crow, do solemnly swear that I will find that pen and get a gold tooth on one of these skulls.  I promise you.

Ok- on with you to the creations from the other Wicked Bloggers for 31 Days of Halloween.  While you are hopping around, if you come across a gold pen, set it aside for me.  It will be our little secret.  Caw, Caw.

Happy Halloween!
