CNS Halloween Blog Hop!

Welcome gouls and thanks for floating by! It's been a week of Halloween on Canadian Nickel Scrap'n. I hope you've had a chance to pop in and get some new ideas for your crafty haunt. I LOVE halloween & was so happy when Nicole asked me to be a part of her hop - I hope you are prepared to become bewitched and find some fun projects to create in your dungeons! Make sure you leave your comments at all the Haunted Blogs for they get restless without them. And you don't want to get left in the dark for the treats keep you from going MAD! There's a lot going on with my spooktacular post today. So beware as you spend your time with me, that there is nothing lurking in the shadows.

You should be just crawling in from Betty's gruesome project. Unfortunately, LIFE totally caught up with me this week so I don't have a Halloween paper crafting project to share with you (yet) today but I found these creepily delish cupcakes online that I think I am going to HAVE to make with my girls. We LOVE cupcakes at our house! Take a look at these:
How totally gross looking and they are SO easy to make!

Bake a batch of cupcakes. Spread a coat of light orange icing (stir drops of yellow and pink food coloring, and just a touch of green, into 2 cups of buttercream frosting until you get a hue you like) on a dozen cupcakes. Use a pastry bag fitted with a number 10 round tip to top them with fat zigzags. It works best to first pipe two zigzags down the middle and then fill in the sides.

I have a half colored image that I'm going to do my best to add to my post sometime tomorrow once I get a decent amount of sleep. I should just post a pic of myself b/c I'm sure I look pretty ghastly with these dark circles!! hehe Thanks for stopping by and now it is off to see the amazing Catherine!
