Skull Appreciation Day Blog Hop

Hi All and welcome the Skull Appreciation Day Blog Hop, hosted by Smeared Ink.  If you would like more details on Skull Appreciation Day, then please visit Skull-A-Day Blog where it all began.

If you have arrived from the Movie Magic Monthly Blog, then you are on the right track, if you have just stumbled across my blog and would like to start at the beginning, then please find the blog roll on my side bar. ---> 

The bloggers were asked to create a project that features a Skull and nothing more.  It can be any project and this is the one event held each year where the item does not necessarily need to be stamped.


I have used a Skull stamp as my main image and a smaller skull stamp in the corner, both have been heat embossed in black.  The main image has then mounted on layered up (x6) die cuts.

Now off you hop to the very talented Serena's blog :)
