Welcome to the Bunnicula inspired HOP N' SWAP brought to you by Smeared and Smudged!

For this hop n' swap I created three projects. A 2"x2" shadow box featuring none other than Bunnicula, a sweet little Bunnicula necklace and last but not least a box to house it all.

Shadow box: I used chipboard to build the box and layered multiple pictures of Bunnicula to give him a 3-D look. Then I embellished, soldered, and added a nice black patina to give it a bit of a vintage look.

Necklace: I used my favorite close to my heart alphabet stamps for the charm. Then colored it in by using watercolor paints and Twinkling H20 to give it a shimmer.
Finished it off by soldering and adding a black patina to age it and add that vintage look.

Box: Oh yes, I loved creating this gift box! Why you ask? Because it was made out of a Toffifee candy box and I had to eat all of the candy before I could make it. Lol
My husband Andy might have had a hand in helping with that chore. I used torn craft paper and a page out of an actual Bunnicula book.

I hope you enjoyed visiting me today. Next stop">Sugar">">Black">Trisha">Sugar">">Dianne

Friday the 13th phobia hop

In honor of Friday the 13th I bring you one of my secret phobias! I am convinced that one day the world is going to be taken over by ZOMBIES! Yes, one morning I am going to wake up and some dried-out dude is going to want to eat my BRAINS (insert shudder here)! Hey it could happen.... I saw Shaun of the Dead!! So sit back and enjoy the show :)

First up we have a mini book filled with the "How to survive a zombie apocalypse" brought to us by the CDC! Yes, kids I am not joking. If you visit the Center for Disease Control's web site they have a plan in place in case Zombies ever attack! See I told you it could happen!!!
