Boo!!! Did I Scare You?!! S2G Fab-BOO-Lous Blog Hop!!

Hi there! You've arrived at my house - the second stop on the Shirley's 2 Girls Fab-BOO-lous Blog Hop! If you didn't start at the S2G Challenge Blog, go back -- I'll wait! ;)

To make this a spooky and BOO-licious party, we've got a mystery treat hidden ["code" for BLOG CANDY] at one of your stops along the hop! But that someone is a SECRET!! She won't reveal her identity during the Blog Hop, so you'll have to leave a comment at EACH blog along the way if you want to win!! The Blog Candy Winner (and the Secret Blog Candy Giver) will be revealed tomorrow! One lucky commenter on that mystery blog will win a $20 gift certificate to S2G! So if you’re feeling SPOOKY, give a little shout out to the bloggers in the hop and you just might have a reason to yell "TRICK OR TREAT"!!!

PLUS, there will be one Grand Prize Winner!! What's the Grand Prize, you ask?

(1) of the S2G Halloween New Releases
Halloween Digi Paper
S2G Embellishments
Yummy Halloween Candy

You MUST leave a comment on the S2G Challenge Blog, as well as each of the blogs along the way, to be eligible for the Grand Prize!!

Okay, now that we have all those details out of the way, let's get to my TREATS for you. I won't bore you with all the minute details of each of my projects - if you'd like more detailed information about any of my projects today, please feel free to email me and I'll be happy to share them with you. You can click on any of the pictures to get a better look.

My first project features the set called Ghoul Friends (SG 902). When I saw these screeching little cats sitting on the fence, I immediately knew that they'd make a fabulous Halloween luminaria. (I saw one of these on Claire Brennan's blog HERE.) Wouldn't these be so fun to put out on your walkway on Halloween night to light the way for those darling little trick-or-treaters?

***********

My second project is two projects in one. I'm always looking for fun hostess gifts. So when I saw these new Spooky 2 images (SG 905), I knew they'd make fab-BOO-lous wine glass charms. So I grabbed my Shrinky Dink (the coolest stuff, I tell ya!), stamped them in Jet Black Staz-On, cut them out, punched a 1/4" hole at the top, and shrunk them with my Heat Embossing Tool. Add some Halloween glass beads, and voila - Halloween Wine Charms!


I packaged them in a hinged nugget tin, and adorned the tin with some of the new Halloween-themed Digi Paper (Bats & Cats 4 - inside and out), and then created a cute little tag using Spook House (SG 907). I think this would make any Halloween Party Hostess SCREAM with joy, don't you?!!

Phew! All of the new Shirley's 2 Girls Halloween stamps will be available for purchase today (9/3)! Wait till you see the other projects that the rest of the DT have for you! You're going to just DIE!!

Justine's Blog is the next stop on your little Trick or Treat path, so skeedaddle on over there. REMINDER: Be sure to leave a comment on each blog along the hop to be eligible for both the Mystery Prize ($20 S2G Gift Certificate) as well as the Grand Prize (listed above). Thanks for stopping by!!
