Hocus Pocus

Hey there!

Ok, so your going to have to put up with a little Glee chatter from me since I didn't have time yesterday... ;)
Even though I missed the Puckasaurous it was fun to hear more from the new Sam kid. At first I wasn't sure about him but I love how goofy they have made him. When he spoke Na'vi to Quinn I totally cracked up! And I'm diggin' the Jason Mraz type vibe that his songs have all had going on, definitely something that's been missing in the group. Oh and I loved the duet between Rachel and Kurt at the end... what can I say but awesome! :)

Now onto this week's Lil Lolita Boutique challenge and this one is all about using skulls on your card. It can be one or many, on the image, on the paper or as an embellishment... totally up to you. And with the new Lil Haunts digis now available it's the perfect excuse to get a little macabre on your card.
I decided to give Ghost Willow the 'big head' treatment and color her up to look more like a sorceress this time around. And I paired her up with the new Pink Paislee Hocus Pocus paper that is very cool... one of the sheets looks like a Ouija board and I was bummed I couldn't make it work for this one but that just means the wheels are turning for another card, LOL!
And once again I've used another of the Making Memories skully flowers. Sure they are a bit bulky but I love them and my goal is to use up the entire pack of six before Halloween... I'm half way there! ;)

Now I want to see you get your LLB groove on and join the fun. Kellie has your choice of three Tickled Pink digis up for grabs as the prize this week so that is a pretty fun incentive don'tcha think?!

Hi Amy. This is adorable! I love, love how you colored her hair. The skull has got to be one of the cutest skulls I have every seen. :O) heehee As for Sam, I too love how he sings. It has such a new sound to it. I was blown away with how well Kurt was able to do the Victor/Victoria song. I have been able to sing that whole movie since I was a kid. Not sure what that says about my Are you guys getting the cold mornings and the awesome afternoons? I love fall, but the mornings are starting to get alot colder here. Hugs, Lisa
