Two-fer, but punny, so watch out-- 31 Days of Halloween, Day 19!

Everyone still Halloween Hopping? ( Linkys are up in the right hand corner.)  So I started making a big hunkin' project, using (what else?) Altered Pages collage images, plus some pretty awesome Smeared digis, but  . . . 

ended up with two smaller pieces instead.  First, Bettie and Bertram are still in hell, this time with a Dante's Inferno twist (Mr. Gargoyle is AP):
All about the candy, oh yes!
What do you think?  Is the blood on the toothbrush too much?

Bertram and Bettie, still aflame.  

(The wonderfully detailed pedestal/column is from S&S.)

And second, an altered tin:
Smeared digi
 But not just ANY altered tin.  This one is a Halloween 
Mustachioed and behatted,

ready to fly--AP has a great selection of wings, btw--

MWAAA, big kiss, sweetie!
Because, after all, ghouls just wanna have fun.
There, I said it.  
And I'm NOT sorry.  ;) 

Happy Hopping!


  1. Love the tin. What a fun idea.

  2. ROTFLMAO!!!!!! Just what I needed to start the weekend. The first made me spit out my coffee. HILARIOUS! and the tin is beyond brilliant. the sunglasses and red lips still have me giggling. BRAVA! You ROCK! xxD

  3. I need to send the card to my dentist!
    what a fun tin you have created. I would keep it on the desk and play during the day.

    1. Seriously, I thought about giving it to our dentist, but the possible repercussions made me reconsider . . . perhaps an anonymous sending would be a better idea, know what I mean??


  4. What a fantastic card. I love the sentiment. That tin is great. I love how you can play with the different pieces. You are one talented lady.

  5. Oooo toothbrushes, now that would just be mean!!! Love the altered tin with all the skullie faces LOL!

  6. Fabulous collage!! and I LOVE the tin!!! This is so cool with the dressing up stuff!!! So creative! mo x

  7. hahahhahh that TIN ROCKS- what fun project and idea. And I would really be irked if someone gave me a toothbrush instead of candy! Love your pieces!

  8. OMGeesh Trisha you killed me once again! My father is a (retired now) dentist- luckily he always felt Halloween enabled him to put us through college Ha Ha! Go Dad- no hell for you! The altered tin also had me ROFLMAO!! Love it!

  9. Love the sentiment on the first! The blood is a perfect touch! Love the altered tin! You did such a wonderful job on both!

  10. What fun projects you have today. Great sentiment and images on the first one. I used to hate to get anything healthy in my Halloween stash. The interactive tin is a great idea. I would like to play with it!

  11. LOL Trish! Perfect touch on the toothbrush! Love the ghoul having fun set! ;) ;)

  12. LOL! I think the blood on the toothbrush is perfect and your altered tin / play set is feakin' awesome.

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
