(Edited To Add)

THANKS SO MUCH FOR ALL OF YOU WHO TOOK THE TIME TO BECOME A FOLLOWER AND THE ONES WHO TOOK THE TIME TO COME, VISIT AND LEFT A COMMENT. AS SOON AS TIME PERMITS I WILL BE ANNOUNCING THE LUCKY WINNER OF THE SUGAR SKULL SCRABBLE PENDANT.

LOVE YOU ALL

-----------------------------------

The day has come for the
"Dia de los Muertos Blog Hop".

November 1st is "Saint's Day" and November 2nd is "Dia de los Muertos" and the blog hop will last both days.

This is what I made for the celebration.
Sugar Skull Wall Hanging


I want to honor all my loved ones who are not here with me, especially my grandparents.
They raised me and I lived with them until it was High School time for me. I then moved with my mom.
I loved my grandparents to death. When I was little I used to tell my grandmother I was going to die with her when her time would come. She was my role model and I adored her. Her name was Maria and they used to call my grandfather Yito but his real name was Liborio. My love for them will never die.

I used Rock Princess (one of the carts I got at ACM for 35$) image #45 cut at  6.5" and the base is from Just Because Cards cut at 10".

I like how it came out in a big size like this and I have it hang it on my kitchen wall already until Nov 1st that I will hang it on my front door then. Did I tell you I love my kitchen....it is all me in and out. It is an old kitchen but I have worked it just they way I wanted it. :)


This is my giveaway for the blog hop and the winner will be picked randomly. You do not have to be a follower but if you do I will appreciate it but I appreciate even more your comments on my work :)

Come back once in a while and leave some love...:)

A"Scrabble Tile" from 
(click on the name to go to her shop and see all kind of beauties she sells in her ETSY shop) 
Wickedly Mod Pendants are my SPONSORS today. They were so very generous and  DONATED this tile for the Blog Hop,  and it is to die for, lmbo.........absolutely gorgeous. Who ever wins will be a happy camper, lol.
I will add Wickedly Mod Pendants shop to my side bar shop for a few weeks in appreciation for donating/sponsoring a giveaway here at my blog. Look on my right side bar, in case you are interested in getting your own. There are so many it will be hard just to settle for one. wink-wink.
I purchased two more tiles with their chains for my SERENADE giveaway. These ones come with the chain too and in a very pretty velvety black pouch. They are awesome. I can't say enough of them.

Now you have to start hopping or re-hopping to get to the other talented ladies who might or might not have a giveaway but  certainly they will have something for you to enjoy and appreciate.

A special  thanks to Abby and Gaby for giving me the opportunity to participate in their 
"Dia de los Muertos" Blog Hop.




  and in case you get lost in the web, way below you will find the line up and their links




Thanks so much for playing along.

AND............one more thing.
This is a photo of the "Grand Giveaway" for hoppers who comment on ALL blogs.

Have FUN hopping!
