UnBOOLievable Blog Hop

Double, double toil and trouble. Welcome to the "UnBoolievable" Blog Hop.Join us if you dare for a Halloween scare. We're calling all goblins, ghost, and creatures of the night! So creep, float or crawl through our blog hop if you dare. We’ve had so much fun creating this hop, and we have a spooky line up with some very talented creators. You will see some spectacular spooky projects along the way having to do with a Halloween theme and have a chance to win some spookish blog candy along the way. This is a one day blog hop that is sure to be full of Gremlins, Goblins, Ghoulies, Ghosties and whitches on brooms. So be sure to grab your warm potion of choice and get ready to creep, float or crawl through our blog hop if you dare!

You should have arrived from Daphne, but if not, please start at Lisa's as you won't want to miss all the spooktacular projects! 

I was busy making the boys their costumes this year and thats what I'll be showcasing! I really really love how they turned out! 

My oldest son is on that fine line of growing out of trick or treating but still wants to do it so he was just going to keep it simple with a black hoodie and a Jason mask. Well, this mom couldn't stop there! 

My youngest son let me have fun with his too! 
Pinterest inspired by his, he is now a "Cereal Killer" I added some fake blood to the letters on his shirt and hot glued some mini cereal boxes down. I added some plastic knives (I duct taped them in the inside so they won't fall out or others cant pull out) and smeared blood all over them too! 

We didn't get a chance to finish my middle sons costume...I am so disappointed as it was gonna be awesome! He found a tutorial online for Ant Man but it was very complex and we didn't realize that when we started! So hes going to be a phantom (<--not too happy with it being store bought!)

I used HTV for both of their shirts and got to play around a little with my new heat press. I'm very new to using heat transfer vinyl, but man...I really love it! 

Up next is the talented Jessica

Thanks for hopping along with us today and have a very Happy Halloween! Not sure about you, but I'll be in a candy coma by the nights end! =D
