unBOOlievable Blog Hop


Hi and Welcome to the UnBOOlievable Blog Hop. You should have came from Ashley's blog. If you started the hop from my blog please go back to Lisa's blog, where the blog hop starts.   


One day while in JoAnn's I took my 2 boys down the Halloween isle to look at the decorations. I had no intentions of buying any decorations but my 3 year old found a jointed skeleton he fell in love with. I checked the price tag and at $35 the jointed skeleton was staying in the store. I told him I would make him a skeleton when we got home. A few sheets of white paper, a few sheet of black paper and 18 jewelry rings later and he had a jointed skeleton for just a few bucks. 
To make the skeleton I mixed 2 patterns from Scrappy Dew The hips and feet are from a former freebie skeleton that is found in the vault. The rest of the pieces are from the Halloween palz collection, which is also found in the vault. I could have used all the pieces from the former freebie skeleton but I had already made outlines of each individual bone from the Halloween Palz skeleton (I bought it when it was still in the store) before I bought the membership to the vault and got the freebie skeleton. Halloween Palz are in shoes so I needed the feet from the freebie skeleton and I liked the hips better on the freebie skeleton. :)  

I hope you enjoyed my project, your next stop in the hop is Lucy    




Here is the complete line up for the hop.
