It's A Lotta Fun Or Should I Say It's Gelato Fun?

It's a bonus post today—it's not my regular Monday, Wednesday, Friday post—but that's because I wanted to join in Take the Challenge with Mou over at Faber-Castell's blog. Each month, the very talented Mou issues a challenge and provides inspiration. This month, she gave us this Day of the Dead skull.

Love it! So I tried my best with some gelatos from their smoothness and spreadability (that's a word, right?!). Plus they react with water (see Mou's project above).

Here's my take on the challenge...I used the cutest die cut from Imaginisce and my gelatos in tropical colors.

I used white chipboard from Tim Holtz that had embossed images on the front (that I messed up). I flipped it over and started fresh and just scribbled some color blocks and then added bits around the edges. Then I used my Faber-Castell Stamper's pen in this olive color to color the edges and corners.

Then I made a little candy or gift bag with the piece. The ribbon is just a bunch of bits from years ago (I think the Jack-o-Lantern came from Jo-Ann's $1 ribbon area). The little skull ribbon is soooo old, but adorable, right?

Over at Simon Says Stamp, the weekly challenge is to let "O" inspire you. I used October for mine...I tried to think of something unique, but other than Oprah, I got nothing. So I'm going with October and entering at the Simon Says Monday Challenge!

14 days til Halloween! Buy your candy and get your costume ready!
