There isn't anything going on on my desk today as we are having a party tonight so it is full steam ahead with the spooky bakes - vampire cakes and severed finger cookies!  So I left out my final two halloween makes this year to 'vamp' up my desk a bit!!

You see before you the two photo shoots I laid out for my latest 12 tags of 2012 and Tag Tuesday and of course as you can see they both had a Halloween theme.

Now don't be afraid as you take a peek as it is all an illusion of scary and underneath the macabre facade are all are the yummy things we love to play with, chipboard, glue, ink, paint, tissue and glitter!  I have had such fun with these miniature ghoulish tags.  This one used Tim's tissue covering technique to good effect to make the texture of weathered stone.

Although this project is second in this post I made it first and it was a bit of a labour of love!  Took me back to playing with dolls houses and dressing up Cindy dolls - as you can see this gentleman is definitely a size zero!  Ken would kill for a pad like this one day!!  I can almost hear you saying - 'that's not a tag'..... but if you don't believe it then you will have to scroll down my blog a bit to see for yourself!  It was one of those ideas that just grew!

I am looking forward to showing these to my two nephews who are visiting tonight along with lots of other little terrors I hope!!  I will be busy today so I hope you don't mind that I will be doing my desk hopping tomorrow but I just had to join in on one of my favourite holidays.

Wishing you all a spooktacular day ....... and night and for those of you who don't celebrate halloween I wish you a quiet night!

Fangs for visiting me!

  4. Happy WOYWW and Happy Halloween too Helen. I know you'll be super busy baking and decorating, but thought I'd pop over anyway. Your desk looks suitably dressed for this evening. Hope we get to see some pictures of today's baking :0)

  5. Love your desk Helen, what a lovely display and the lemon colour is so bright and somehow just right (not being the usual orange or lime green).
    Good luck with the party, save me a finger or to please.
    Hugs, Neet 23 xx

  6. I'm sat reading my WOYWW blogs on my sick bed this week but have my mask on so you don't catch anything. I'm enjoying reading what everyone is up to this week [it's better than reading magazines :-) ]. I'm leaving a copied comment so you know I've called by because my hands are too weak and shaky to keep typing out my comments this week.
    Big hugs,

  12. I don't want to imply that I doubted you, but I did have to scroll down to see how that coffin is a tag. Indeedy pie it is! I had a laugh at how he was size zero. Love the elaborate tags!!! Hope your celebrations were fun!
