Witching Hour and Drawing is Almost Here!

Here is a Lady Devil paper mask to use, I have a couple different others but will post another time..

Yikes! All my Halloweenie ideas went out the window! The kitties are so spooked by all the rattling from the weather they would not cooperate and take pictures...but managed to hold Rufus, then he zipped away to the bedroom and crawled under the down quilt! He's such a big baby with a soulful face..

This paper crown was my first Blog Swap,'Tiaras & Crowns',and was made by Amanda of HodgePodge . She has a etsy store :

My hubby was not enjoying this I got alittle silly and wore a wreath!

My big dramatic witch hat! Wearing what all country witches wear black and overalls!

Had more hats.. but hubby wanted dinner is a faux digi hat and bat..

To kill some time till the drawing... altered my photos as where just... Boring!! So how to make pictures of me interesting ??? Alter them.. hope you enjoyed and had a Safe and Happy Halloween!

Hubby was suppose pick names for me but.. he went off to bed a hour ago! My ,we Are dull !

Found this old owl in one of my book piles today so here is another freebie!
