Skull Appreciation Day

                                



 
Join us today , June 4th for one wild blog hop event! We will be celebrating Skull Appreciation Day by featuring projects that spotlight the much-loved cranium. We will also be giving away tons of freebies during the hop!


If you just happened upon this post and would like to start at the beginning and get the details on how to win some awesome prizes! :)
  or got lost along the way click HERE which will be Terra's blog.


If your on the right track you should have arrived from inspiring  Trisha 's  blog 


and this is my creation that I have made for this special day
I  used an image from Delicous Doodles, I colored the flowers with copics, stamped su flourish background, used th colorwash on the background, ms border punch, michaels ribbon, th emb folder , stickles
 
Ok, so in my enormous amount of spare time(ha ha, best joke I told all year) I decided to appreciate the skull some more and made this
 
 
the image I got from smeared and smudged, I think the love paper might be pimp my tags, colored with copics
 
 
 
and this one I made almost 12 years ago, he's my youngest and was a good sport to play along with me


 
and just the other day he said I was weird and not normal??
