Gettin' Pretty Scary....
Any road trip with Kip is an adventure and the one to Sebring was no exception. We laugh far too much and have far too much fun. We swing from slap stick to Thelma and Louise. What a joy this friend of mine is to me.
And, any time spent with the amazing, mystifying Hilltop Gals is an experience not to be missed. A couple of glasses of vino, a rock or two on the front porch of this historic hotel with the smokers and creative mode takes over.
Kip and I had bought these small chipboard books a while back with the intent of creating tombstone treasures because of the shape of the books. We both began and finished our books last night. There are far more pages than these pictured and now to take the pictures to fill our little books. That should be easy because tonight is the costume party and contest and the judging of the pumpkins.
When we arrived, we were each given a 'nekkid' pumpkin and told to pretty it up. I'll post mine later. While, there are far cuter ones on the display table, I love mine. I even used Tim Holtz new Grunge letters ....love them!
If you can see the front of my tombstone treasures book, the title is done with the Grunge letters. I painted them black and then sanded off the embossed swirls. I covered each with Crystal Lacquer to get the shine.
Off to play! Love to all.
