HIMCR #70 Challenge

Welcome to this weeks challenge over at HIMCR!!! 3 favorite Colors (Blue, Red, White OR Blue Red and Pink are my favorite 3 colors but as you will see I used more as summer calls for yellow!)
I had such a hard time with this challenge, hence the word "Challenge"!  Each DT member was given a digital  from the Scrapbook Stamp Society   I got "Mermaid Queen"by Sherri Baldy
My biggest challenge is Summer and Fantasy  and I thought about what I would do with her for 2 hours... nope, nothing, my brain was blank, hahaha...I thought enough stalling so pitter patter I got at her..... (dove in blind)
As I am secretly working on my coloring skills I decided to print the image out on pattern paper and give Mermaid Queen  a poka -dot- bikini , hehe!! I also did her crown and tail with a different pattern paper..  I did the eyes, skin and hair with Spectrum Noir!!  Yayyyy!!!  So ok I can't brag to much because there is actually suppose to be water around her but I messed it …

Halloween for 25 Glickens/ Winner!!!!!

Good Morning!

The past two days I have been really busy taking the woods from the woods, hehe. My twin sister and a friend of hers (Sue) went to Muns Road and it was extraordinarily beautiful with colored leaves everywhere! The trees were draping over the road almost meeting and the road itself was covered!

We retrieved 8 huge bags of leaves, 25 small bags and lots of dried ferns and other dried weeds to create a Fall/Halloween scene in my yard. 

I live on an ocean front and  don't have ONE tree in my yard, hence the reason having to load up so much.

Here are some pictures of what we did, I also had Kelly and the terrifically talented Theresa over and Theresa helped! Michael was having a terrific time with his best friend.

Today my project is a treat bag to hold all 25 treats for Michael's classmates!

I used a green bag that I got from Michael's Store, added a couple of cricut cuts, halloween stamps and a black hair net!  To keep the handles together I used an onion bag and twin…
