Monster Ball! Halloween Ornament!

Monster Ball! Halloween Ornament! Day 31 of the 31 Days of Halloween! I love Halloween not for the Scary Boo stuff but for the time we spent with our family watching old Monster Movies and being together. Time has moved on yet when we do reunite when the time is right we can’t resist reliving  our love of Monster movies! For this Month’s challenge AlteredPages joined with Art Anthology to rock our crafting world!

Yes, the book, magazine & Pin projects we feel we must accomplish. Her book pokes fun at all of us!   I dare you not to laugh! Haven't you gone to a Craft Fair or drooled over a Pinterest project and then foolishly said,  "I CAN DO THAT"!    As Glitter is my witness, I know have!    I opened Heather's  BOOK , I was soon in tears from laughing so hard.  I showed one of the finished projects to my husband and his serious response was (keeping in mind these are crafting projects) "Is that made from pork rinds"?   Sadl
