It’s Skull Appreciation Day! It all started at a little blog called Skull A Day. Here’s what they wrote about this new international holiday: “We here at Skull-A-Day have decided that there needs to be an official international day of cranial love! To that end we’re starting a campaign to get June 4th (the day Skull-A-Day started) officially recognized as Skull Appreciation Day around the world in 2011, and of course to get as many people celebrating it as possible.”
So, the members at Smeared & Smudged (Thanks Steph for starting it all!) decided it would be fun to do a massive member blog hop. And I do mean massive! We have 37 people in our hop today! That alone is cause for celebration! I think it’s awesome that so many folks have come together for such a unique day…all creating something fabulous and…well…skully! You should be coming to me from Tori’s blog. But if not…go back to the beginning at Terra’s blog (which has ALL the info on the hop). I will have the entire hop list at the bottom of my post though. We have many amazing sponsors for this hop, so please be sure to stop by everyone’s blog…or you might miss out on some great prizes!
I immediately knew I wanted to do something cool with the Sugar Skulls stamps from Bombshell. I adore this set, and I really wanted to do something over the top. I think I may have succeeded in that! Phoenix has a shirt that he loves that has a mess of Sugar Skulls on it. He looks pretty rad in it too. So I thought it would be fun to make a scrapbook page…with him wearing his shirt…with the Sugar Skulls from Bombshell on it. And what’s more…let’s make it a family project! I wanted the kids to break out their Crayolas and color the skulls with me! Here’s what we came up with!
This really was a lot of fun! Quite a bit of work…but fun. Meaningful too, since both of my kidlings helped me with it!
Isn’t he handsome??? You can click on any of the pictures to see them bigger. Take a look at Phoenix’s shirt. All of the skulls grouped together, except for one that has fallen to the bottom of the shirt! Hilarious!
Most of the Sugar Skulls were colored by Phoenix. But Rhiannon and I did our fair share of them too! We really enjoyed ourselves. And I look forward to scrapbooking with them more in the near future.
I hope you liked my page! Thank you for stopping by. Enjoy the rest of the hop. Have a skully inspiring day!!!
