TOFF #18 Halloween

What a glorious weekend we have just had. Although a bit windy at times it was a lovely out and the colour of the trees at the moment is just spectacular.

Friday I had a flexi day at work so MP and I went over to my Dad's to help him with some jobs in the garden. I was in charge of pruning and cutting back whilst MP and Dad finished off making some compost things out of wood and MP then had to remove some turf so the compost things could go in the corner of the garden. Have to say all that fresh air meant we slept well Friday night.

Took Sam for a walk to Watergrove reservoir again on Saturday. He loves it there and goes off leaping through the trees in search of squirrels and other critters. He gave us a fright the other week when he bounded off only to bound back a few minutes later close behind a beautiful deer. Luckily no deer this week.

We walked off our usual route and up into the hills about the reservoir, finding all sorts of new paths. Had to take a photo of the trees we saw, stunning.


Sunday MP went off on a ride out with some of his biker friends. It's coming to the end of the season now so he likes to get out if the weather is nice and I like the peace and quiet. So with MP gone for the day, I set to task on this weeks challenge at the Octopode Factory - Halloween. Who better but the Father of horror and murder mysteries, Mr Edgar Allan Poe himself.


Digi stamps from the Octopode Factory, background paper Tim Holtz, red pepper paint dabber for the blood, home made frame - with distressed inks and TH crackle paint.

p.s For those of you who like the Rocky Horror Picture Show, Lily has done some great digi stamps available here.

Thanks for looking and back soon
