Monster Mash Blog Hop

Welcome to the Monster Mash blog hop! If you came from Kate's blog then you are in the right place. If not and you would like to start at the beginning please go HERE.
3 Girl Jam
3 Girl Jam and Jaded Blossom have teamed up for this Monster Mash blog hop! We are using
and
3 Girl Jam crinkle ribbon

For my first project I used the cute little Monster from the Monster Mash set and colored him in with my Spectrum Noir markers. I added glossy accents to his eyes and boils. I added some X-press it tape to the back of my circles and ruffled the Goblin Green crinkle ribbon.
For my second project I cut this sweet monster couple from Scrappy Dew's Franky Halloween cut file. When I saw the "Love Monster" sentiment, in the Monster Mash set, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it. I masked the stamp so each word stamped seperately. The couple is pop dotted on top of the Celebrations crinkle ribbon.
Your next stop on the hop is Abby.

Before you go we have some blog candy up for grabs.
