The Mummy, The Witch and The Pirate

I love, love, love this stamp from Stamping Bella. And with this week's Bellarific Friday Challenge being Halloween - I couldn't resist! Did you get to play too? I can't wait to head over to Emiy's blog to see what the sistahs have contributed.

You've probably guessed that I've started with Bella's Bestest paper, Memento Tuxedo Black ink and copics. And if you've been here before you know I added prismacolor pencils blended with gamsol. Lindabella has an excellant tuitorial demonstrating how she adds pencils to her copic colored images here. Pencils are yet one more way to build color and make your images come to life. I love how it gives them depth and makes them look more realistic. Check it out.

Once I finished coloring, I matted my image with a Scalloped Square Nestie. A simple ribbon bow and a senitment from Memory Box add the perfect touch. But I think the design paper, Erie by Basic Grey, really sets the stage.

Now let's see what the Mini-Bella's have made this week.

First up is Madison with Battiful Darling.

And McKenzie also colored The Mummy, The Witch and The Pirate.

Awesome girls! So glad you both participated again this week. Now get out your brown, orange, yellow or red accessories cause next week's challenge is to use Fall Colors. Hope you can find the time to join us. But if you can't head on over to the Bella Blog and leave a comment for a chance to win some Bella Bucks.

Have a great weekend!

Sometimes we sing some English songs, and I encouraged the students practise their English through the way of singing. therefore no worries and suspend with a correct approach of chat and fun together with your loved ones.

Small women are believed to find it more complicated to use fat than larger women as
they have got a smaller calorie need. Every time you head to
the bathroom, take a minute or two and turn
it into your temporary personal travel fitness station. This
can be achieved by adding more weight, increasing the number of repetitions, or by adding on additional sets.

The Butler Report ( is a world news summary website site which,
in addition to headline news, publishes US and worldwide events not covered
by mainstream media. What is interesting is that you get
to read news and analysis that give you an entirely different perspective, rarely seen in corporate-sponsored media.

They can also update news on their site as and when the event occurs while the newspapers
have to wait until the next morning.
