Bag o’ Bones

Q: Who won the skeleton beauty contest?
A: No body

Q: What does a skeleton order at a restaurant?
A: Spare ribs!!!

Wha-ha-ha-ha. I love Halloween! It probably doesn't make me a very good Methodist if that's my favorite holiday, but, it truly is. I just love all the frivolity of it. So, my next hostess club meeting is all about the Halloween.


Isn't that just "bad to the bone?!" I freakin' love it. And, check it out, I even found some napkins today to go with it for my hostess club party.


These little 'bag in a box" patterns have been all over the blog-o-sphere, and for good reason. They're a blast to make. I followed Diana Gibbs' easy tutorial, here: Box in a Bag. (Thanks Diana!) All I did was change the designer paper to our Ghostly Greetings paper. To make the tag, I used the Batty for You stamp set, and our punches on Kiwi Kiss and Pumpkin Pie cardstock. I added a couple of wiggly eyes just for more giggles and grins and finished it out with the 5/8" Old Olive grosgrain ribbon.

So a skeleton walks into a bar and orders a beer and a mop . . .

Stay tuned for some more projects to tickle your funny bone.
