                                                    IT'S THE GHASTLIES...
                                              Doing the "Monsta Mash"

                                  This is my first little piece for the Orange Slab fest over at  Dawn's
                                                  ....I've just begun making this table topper....and
                   I decided to have the two rows face opposite directions so wherever you sit you can
                                                       shiver along with them....lol

                             I am working on borders right now and am thinking of this choice:
                            I like the black and white option as there are a lot of colors going on in that
                                                                        "Parlor of Horrors...".
                                                       "Don't you just love the classy candelabras???"

Last year I began this little Halloween Dresden and it will reside on the
                                        back of "Monsta Mash.." 
            (Is that tune now bopping through your brain? heh heh heh)

I don't know if you can tell, but some of those little background white circles are little itty bitty skulls...I almost used up the whole charm pack and will use the rest for border pieces--maybe some tiny 1" squares....

I hope to get this finished and off my wall so that I can put together more of this Ghastlie Group....I have a lot more blocks--perhaps some place mats for
Willa and Fiona?  We'll see....
