Friday at last!

Used a skeleton from Michaels and altered it. My Diva Skeleton is for daughter Isabella and was inspired by Elsie Flannigan. But after I made it I thought about Day of the Dead and figured this would be perfect. Aha moment. So the one above is my idea to make it look like the tradional Mexican Day of the Dead skeletons. Used alot of bling from Target dollar spot, I doodled alot of the details and odds and ends rubons that dont know what to do with since they are soo small. Love how it turned out.
Ok so I have been creating like a mad woman. But when I am in the mood stay back nothing will stop me or I will explode from all the ideas I have in my head. So I want to share what I have been up to. Been so inspired with the whole Halloween thing. Finished up my skeletons and if I must say they turn out pretty cute. OH! And I am the LO of the day at Amillionmemories today! Weeeeee, ya baby! I am so glad they like the hunted house box that I made. It turned out cute so I was happy. I hate it when it does not come out the way I see it in my head. There are some interest in some of the gals to learn how to make it so I have to email Michelle or Allison for I keep forgetting. Anyways so I would love to do that, never done in online but I am sure I will figure it out.
Hunted House Theater style box. Used an old Daisy D chipboard container to create this 3D theater. Used MM Halloween clear stickers and pp. Love how it turned out!

I am so glad they don't think I am crazy! I get so excited with ideas in my head sometimes and I want to do crazy out of the box things and sometimes have to watch myself cuz some people might look at me like ok relax and turn it down a notch. hehehe but the one's around me, that knows me know that's just the way I am. Right Gracie? hehehe That's what I want to do is inspire people to just enjoy making something. Don't get me wrong I love love love scrapbooking but man there is nothing like creating something that is in your head and you are the only one that can see it. Then turn around and make it and share it and people get it! Like it? Want it? It is awesome. Its like they get the bug that you had when you are all excited to create it Looove it!

Even though I am not in a DT or published or well known.... I feel like this year was the right year to listen to my inner voice to step out and put myself out there. Be myself and share what I love to do. I think I have that this year.... I think I am able to share my stuff without feeling embarrassed or critical of myself. Not worrying if people will accept me or ignore me. But being myself without asking anything in return. And to know I don't need to be like everybody else to be liked, or follow the clicks and hang out at certain places. I don't need to kiss any body's ASSSSH to be in the group. I like that! ha

Hi Michelle, it's so nice to meet you! I am Filipina, although people always think i'm Chinese so thanks for recognizing!

That 3-D Halloween scene is amazing!! And all of those skeletons...I think I'll head over to Michael's (tee hee!).

And I feel the same way about putting yourself out there, girl! I've tried out for a few DT's, got frustrated when I didn't get them, but you know what? It won't stop me from doing what I love. So you go!!

I'll definitely visit you more, esp to hear the Knightrider song :).
