Here's the Blog List - hope you will hop through and look at all the super makes...

And yes...I am Jolly Blogging again...

On the first day of Creepmas....

This was my make for the 1st day of Creepmas last year - the first page of a fat page book -

so the decision was what to make this year...

My first idea was a Creepmas tree covered with ATCs -
 I thought I had a tree made of cardboard circles which would have been perfect - but somehow in the last move I think it must have been disposed of!

Then the idea crossed my mind to make a tree using the technique I used in the

BUT as we are now in Australia for a few days on grandparent duty
 there hasn't been time to work on that...

So it's a concertina book that I found in my stash -
 each page decorated with creepy, quirky or creepy cute images  including lots of ATCs.
As the days move on it will become more embellished!

So for the first day of Creepmas I am showing you a page matted with some DP from my stash and then layered with this super image from Teri Sherman
coloured with Promarkers.

More to see soon!

I will link this first page to Dream In Darkness - who are having a Creepmas event too...

I was so pleased to see the interest in my make for the 31 Days of Halloween -
so I thought I would offer you a Creepmas Present!!
My last year's Creepmas book -
 it came to light when we were unpacking at our new house 2 months ago!!
You can see what it was all about here
