Halloween Party Layout and Tombstones

Being that I posted some altered Halloweeny bottles, I decided to post these projects that I had made last year for a Halloween Party that had at my house. Thought these would be a perfect backdrop for the bar area in our garage which was blacked out with plastic black table covers all over the walls. What I thought was awesome and unexpected was how they stood out with the black light. Needless to say, I have now become the "Halloween Party House", but... even still... Christmas is my favorite holiday!!

Made a layout of my family and some of my sister's families that would be going to the party! I never did get a close up shot of their layouts.
Made many more tombstones and spread them out through out the garage.
A few more layouts here, before we rearranged them. Loved how some o the colors stood out.

 Final setup, looked more towards realistic-like cemetery, especially when we added a ton of Autumn leaves to our garage floor.

Altered Holloween Bottle by Sharon (aka) COB - Crafty Old Bat

I received this bottle in return to the altered bottle swap I was in on the Cricut MB, (the one I made is in the post below). She did an amazing job, just had to share!!

Goodies portion of the R, W and B Swap

This swap was special swap for Miss Kelley, she warmed my heart when she became an Angel on another swap I was on, hence how we met. Super kind and genuine!!!

Mixed Media Artist Tray

Last of the projects I made for the R, W & B swap. This project was also a first for me! One of the items I could have made were 2 ATC's, I decided I wanted to give her something super special, so I decided to do this artist tray, each section is bigger than the usual ATC's, but I'm thinking she won't mind, lol. Threw her initials into this one too.

Victorian "Ladies Diary" Altered Box

Yes, another project for the R, W & B swap, I used "red" in this one. My first altered box, I'm hoping she likes it!!!

Altered Mouse Trap

Hi everyone, back with another project for the R, W & B swap, it didn't have to be patriotic, as long as I used one of the three colors it was okay. An altered mouse trap was on her list, so this is my first attempt at it, I used her initials as part of the embellishment and I incorporated the Red into the metal flowers.


Have a great day!!!

Altered Paintbrush...Patriotic "USA" Plaque

Another project that I made for the R, W & B swap. One of her requests was for an altered paint brush, I have never altered anything until this swap and I loved every minute of it.

4th of July "Snap Crackle Pop"

This is one of five projects I made  for a Red, White & Blue swap that I joined.  This is going out to me sweet friend and scrapping buddy, Kelley. Just add popcorn, even though I gave her chocolate.

Halloween Altered Bottle

Made this for a swap I joined for Altered Bottles. Halloween is one of my partners favorite holidays (mine too). I was going to incorporate a vampire fairy, which she also loves (me too), but I then changed it to the black rose. I'll have to save the fairy for another swap, lol.
