Work in progress......

Evening peeps hope you all have had  fabbie weekend, I have managed to do some de-cluttering ......gosh the amount of stuff that you hoard over the years, you wait next week I'll be looking for something that has been thrown away or has gone to the charity shop. I've got a month to get up the old carpets, paint the skirting boards and redecorate the hall before they are coming to fit the new ones, I always seem to have a major job done before Christmas, instead of spring cleaning I think I winter clean.....lol.
Thought I'd share with you a Halloween album that I have started featuring Ethan, last year was the first time he had dressed up and I know hes got his costume sorted out for this week. I brought the skeleton from the 99p shop  you get 6 in the bag and this one I have coloured with alcohol ink added gems for the eyes and glitter, then dressed him with a bow.


My little monster grandson Ethan.


made a pocket and popped in a tag with a spider attached.
