31 DOH Day #6 Day of the Dead with Dilly Beans

Firstly today, thank you so much for all the awesome comments! I'm loving hearing what you think and I am also loving hopping around the blogs too - there is so much inspiration, i've started a notebook!!! 

*Answers to some questions!* Shoni asked if I made the rolled roses on Friday's project -They were a cut file done with the cameo, or a scalloped rolled rose - you just roll them up, glue it together et voila! I added some Wink of Stella for the shine. Also, the same roses are on today's project, just cut a little larger and the scalloped folded over to make a more authentic rose shape. xx

Welcome to Day #6 of 31 Days of Halloween! I hope you are enjoying the hop! You can find the blog roll in my side bar. Your first stop on the hop is Terra, you should have come to me from Lyneen, and your next stop is Rebecca. Remember to comment on all the blogs on the hop for a chance to win at the end of the month and keep in mind the Scavenger Hunt for daily prizes!
Today my inspiration is Day of the Dead and I have used a fabulous Sugar Skull Framed image from Dilly Beans. I have kept the colouring to greyscale using my Promarkers and filled the eye sockets with Black Soot Distress Glitter for sparkle! The DP is from Fancy Pants Designs 'Oct 31' paper pad and I used the Turquoise Promarker to edge the image. The web frame and rolled roses are cut on the Cameo.
Thanks for looking!
