Waltzing Mouse September Blog Waltz



It's that time of the month again - Waltzing Mouse's monthly blog hop!! This month the theme is Halloween. 

To play along you must add your blog link HERE


I just fell in love with the WMS Halloween release and used both the Wanda's Pantry and the Midnight Feast sets to make my project. 



For my jar of decomposed fingers I used sponge fingers and orange jelly (jell-o). My kids LOVED the very idea of it, lol. And the company name - S. Lyme & Co - ingenious!!

I went all out with nesties, using 5 different ones, including the Fleur de Lis that I've had since last year and never used. 

The papers on my card are last years Basic Grey halloween line, except for the orange dot which was in my scrap folder.

I had so much fun making these and am really looking forward to making up some pretty cool goodies for the trick or treaters this halloween!!

Thanks for stopping by!!
Have a wonderful day
