Down the Spooky Rabbit Hole with EIC



It has been such an honor and pleasure to have been
a Guest Designer with the talented team from the
EtsyInspired Challenge.


I have found that the older I get, the time
absolutely zooms by and the month of August
has been consistent with that statement.
I thank the girls at EIC for their kind comments
along the way and hope that I was able to bring
'just a little something extra' to their challenge.

For this week's challenge, we were inspired by the
beautiful shop known as 'The Caged Fairy', which
features some beautiful handcrafted jewelry.
I chose this pendant for my inspiration.....


.....and I have been dying to pull out my newest
Graphic45 collection that picked up at CHA last month.


Halloween can't come fast enough for me...well, I don't want it to be
here quite yet because I want some solid 'play time' to create some
spooky creations.
This is hardly spooky, but it is from Graphic45's
'Halloween in Wonderland'
I inked up the borders of this fabby paper with black ink to
create some spooky shadows (ok, so a little spooky)
I cut some concentric circles using my Spellbinders Nesties
and topped it with a wonderful die-cut which is part of the collection.
The embellishments are from Making Memories 'Spellbound'.

Make sure you stop by this lovely shop to see all
the wonderful pendants that are available there and
of course, please visit the girls from EIC.

EtsyInspired Design Team....

{many thanks}

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
