Hello Crafters and happy Friday! I have a Halloween project and step outs to share today...a lighted burlap panel using Tim's new Snow Globe Thinlets from Sizzix...and as promised, to announce the WINNERS from my 5th Blogiversary give-away! Huge thanks to all of you that commented and participated. Some of the comments even made me tear up...THANK YOU!!! I feel so loved and appreciated, and I am so very thankful for all of you...AND it's especially sweet that I didn't get to much razzing about my chart!!!

|I taped off the edges of a burlap panel so it would have a framed feel, and then I slathered the middle with Gesso...for two reasons: durability and spreadability. You will see why next.|
|I gave the surface a dry, and then stenciled in the Halloween word from the Mini Layering Stencil Set 23, with Wendy Vecchi's Hydrangea Archival Ink from Ranger. I chose this color because it's a purply gray and was dark enough to ink over the crayon. It's a very versatile color.|
|I lightly spritzed over the the background with Wendy's Buttercup Mica Spray for some sparkly Halloween night splendor. I removed the tape, and then added the black glittery Design Tape from the new Materialize stash.|

And now for our winners. I had three hats...one for each monster. Those of you that wanted any, your name went into each hat. Those that wanted a particular, your name went in twice in that particular hat...just to make it a little more fair. Oh how I wish I could give each of you the dies...so hard for me, but...(drum roll sound)...
The Monster Thinlets go to CRAFTY HOPE! Who said,
Those tags have so much detail in them! Beautifully done. And, the thought put into to make that list is inspiring. You really get a bang for your buck with all those options! Now that I see how versatile these are, I'd be happy to win any of the three. Thanks so much for the opportunity and your amazing inspiration!
The Vampire Thinlets go to REDANNE! Who said,
Yay on the 5 years!! I love all three tags, they look amazing!! But your charts - WOW, you have given me so many ideas now for my one and only die in this set - the Zombie - thank you so much (sadly, ideas do not flow for me like they do for you). Your chart is fantastic! I agree, blogging is time consuming and often difficult, but it takes us ages to make creations and it is always nice to give/receive some encouragement, it makes it all worthwhile! If I am lucky enough to win, I would love either the Monster or Dracula.... Hugs, Anne xx
The Zombie Thinlets go to JACKIE P. NEAL! Who said,
OMGosh Anita! I am still laughing at some of those phrases!! What a mind you have-awesome! haahaa i still think my favorite is "zombies don't like fast food-keep running! LOL Your tags are absolutely too cool- not only the die parts, but your backgrounds really do speak to me- you added so much interest to these- well done!! Geesh I don't have any of the dies and if i was the lucky one to be picked I would be happy with whatever you chose to send! ") Happy Blog-i-versary and thank you so much for taking the time to create and share all that you do! It means alot to so many of us!
Congrats to all three of you, and AGAIN a huge thank you from my whole heart. Please email me your address so I can get these out as soon as possible.
I hope your hands get creatively dirty soon!
