Monster Mash Blog Hop Day 1

Welcome to the Monster Mash Blog Hop Day #1

I was working in the lab, late one night
When my eyes beheld an eerie sight
For my monster from his slab, began to rise
And suddenly to my surprise
He did the mash, he did the monster mash
It was a graveyard smash!

Let's get this Monster Party started!

I got these really awesome hard back burlap panels from Michael's on a major clearance deal! I have never applied vinyl to burlap before so I was definitely nervous! I didn't have any HTV in the colors I wanted so I went with good ol' 651 vinyl (outdoor vinyl). I designed everything with my Silhouette. I love how it turned out and the vinyl is holding up great! I didn't need a sealer or anything! 

Up next is the lovely and talented DEBBIE!

Here is our complete line up for day #1 in case you get lost along the way:

Thanks so much for joining us for such a fun day! Don't forget to come back tomorrow for Day #2!

Now, prepare to be spooked!

Every year I make 2 special little boys fun treat bags that I send up to NY for Halloween. This is their bags for this year, I just need to fill them up with goodies! I bought these bags from Michaels...LOVE THEM! They are so nice and thick, super sturdy! 

The green bag has an embossed background from Tim Holtz and a mummy from the Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge. I cut him out at 3.5". The tag is from Jaded blossom and so is the sentiment. I stamped the spider web on using an older stamp set that i've had (sorry, i don't know the brand of it). I then embossed it with Recollections Pearl embossing powder in Champagne color. The spider brad is by Making Memories. 

The orange bag has all the same supplies used as the green bag, but i used the monster/alien looking doll instead. 

I am submitting my Treat Bags in Jaded Blossom's October Challenge

Up next is Theresa
