Happy Halloween

Happy October 31!
I am in the midst of helping Brenna recover from having her wisdom teeth out and one baby tooth removed  and an adult tooth that was exposed and bonded. This is to enable the adult tooth to eventually move down into it's proper place. Not a fun procedure to say the least, but she is doing amazingly well.
Needless to say, I haven't done a whole lot in the world of art, but I haven't driven over any more cats, either.
 So....I thought today I would post the completion of the altered book I did with my friends, Wendy and Debbie.
 Remember this?

Here are pages from the finished product:

Wendy's addition to the book:

Debbie's additions:

My stuff filled the rest:

It was a blast to work on! We learned new techniques from one another, traded ideas and trinkets, and swapped things that we came upon and used in each other's books. I found old family photos that I use, I downloaded the witch pictures from the tutorial by Kris Hurst on Kari Ramstrom's Year of Color. The awesome bride of Frankenstein was from vintagesusieandwings.blogspot.com. and some of the fun was from my swap partner, Suz Reaney! It's a blast to do and is a great way to cement a new friendship.

Have a safe and happy Halloween. Eat lots of candy for us!!


  1. you never cease to amaze me...I love your work and what a trip to be open to working with 2 others. Proud sister, here :-)

  2. What a lovely book! Hope you have a happy Halloween!

  3. Wow...this turned out so cool! Don't you love the way that everything compliments each other? Y'all did a great job.

    And yeah, I'm thinking from the title alone...I should NOT read the next post. :(

    Happy Halloween!

  4. Hi, Dear Person,
    I am so glad Brenna is doing well! I am so honored to have a little place in your wonderful altered book, Lynn. It just looks fantastic. You are soooo talented. I will be sad to take my Halloween decorations down :-(
    Your lovely ones are all I have but now I am going to keep getting and making some. We had such fun, huh?

  5. I hope Brenna is feeling better. I remember having my wisdom teeth pulled when I was a kid. The key was to stay sitting up for the first 24 hours. I had next to no swelling. Granted, I hated my mother for not letting me lay down but, in the end, it was a good thing. :)

    As for your lovely book ~ OH MY GOODNESS!!!! What an incredibly wonderful job you have done with it!!!!! Truly spectacular!! I would love to be able to see it in person!! Happy November. :)

    ~ Wendy
