Costumed Canines - The Bloody Beagle


Don't be fooled by this adorable tiny dog. Her small size means the evil in this mastermind is even more concentrated.  In addition to mind control, via her cuteness, over humans, she takes every opportunity to make other pooches submit to her will with her tiny paws of fury. She is in constant battles with Sgt. Smashy over who will rule the tiny dog Kingdom, Puppytopia. 

Note- Sgt Smashy has yet to discover her weakness but we all know there are two things .... Treats and eyeball scratches. (She has really itchy eyes. )

Doggone Dirty Craftin Linky Party

Rhinestone Beagle



Give me a good tomatoey casserole on a chilly day and I am happy!  Michelle @ Sunshine and Hurricanes has a rich looking recipe that fits that bill!  I might add in a can of corn for extra snap.

I love pumpkin.  It's high in fiber, got some good Vitamin A, and tastes delish!  Maria @ Krafty Cards Etc has collected over 100 recipes using this magical gourd for us to sample.  


Tiffany at Broward Saves linked up this yummy looking recipe for Healthy Candy Corn Bars.  These are going on my recipe list for the big day.

Lou Lou Girls linked a post about 10 Halloween Minute to Win It games.  These would be great for a kids halloween party to keep the little ones busy all afternoon.

HTTC - Emergency Spell Case Tutorial


Here's an easy home dec project to add some spooky flavor to an empty wall space.  *If you don't a have a cutter like the silhouette or circuit just pick up some fun stickers at the local craft store.*

Supplies
Small broom(I got mine in the dollar bin at target but you could easily make one with some sticks from the backyard.)
Shadowbox - one that will fit the broom
Sticky vinyl - This comes in a roll at the craft store.
Cardstock paper in various colors
Glue gun

1.  First you will apply your letters.  I took out my underused Silhouette Cameo and cut "In case of Witchery break glass" from grey vinyl.  This was my first time using the sticky stuff and I have to say I love it.  Apply your letters to the top edge of the glass on your frame.

2.  Now you will need to take the back off and insert your broom.  I had to trim mine down a little but my kitchen scissors did the job just fine.
You can see the original broom was a hair too big for the frame.  
Hot glue it into place, making sure to leave a little room in the bottom corner for your potion bottles.  I glued at the top of the handle and at the base of the broom to make sure it was really stuck on.

3.  Now you will need to make your potion bottles.  I used my Silhouette again for this step but you could just draw these out and cut them by hand.  Decorate them with glitter, embossing powder, stickers or markers.  I chose to use the glue gun to stick them onto the velvet backing that is in the shadowbox to make sure they would adhere for years to come.

DONE!  This is a super simple project you can complete in a weeknight.  Like I said above, if you don't have an electric cutter just pick up some letter stickers from Joann and get creative making your own potion bottles.  Gidget is our resident spell caster so her stamp of approval was very appreciated.

Cast on!

Costumed Canines - Super Bubs

I though long and hard about what type of superhero Abby would be.  She is way too silly to be anything hard core tough and has been known to hide behind her momma when other dogs come around so bravery is not her thing either.  She has tried to get the stuffed bunny we put out for Easter to throw the ball for her and has offered to trade her chewies for human food so she is too sweet to be a villain.  Naps are her weekend plans meaning super speed is out, and she could never stay focused long enough to even attempt to control someone mind.
So that leaves only one type of superhero.....the one that thrives in the imagination of little kids, complete with dad's clothes and a towel cape!

Mild mannered Abby by day, working a desk job for the man.

Super Bubs by night, Punisher underwear wearing vigilante keeping the streets safe for puppies everywhere. I've heard tell she might have a bit of a crush on Sgt. Smashy.

Doggone Dirty Craftin Linky Party

Rhinestone Beagle



Stella Marie @ Domestic Evolution created the cutest little hat.  This would be great to keep a little  Trick-or-Treater warm on the big night.

I have loved dump cakes since a summer I spent at acting camp.  I am very excited to try this fall infused one from Elaine @ Cookin and Craftin.  

What little kid wouldn't love a special note in their lunch?  These free printables from Leandrea at Coupons are Great are super festive will Halloween jokes.  FUN!

This recipe for Chocolate Raspberry Tart from Clairejustine has two of my fav ingredients in any recipe.  Chocolate and Raspberries.

Costumed Canines - Sergeant Smashy

Tough as a tank and shaped like one too Sgt. Smashy has been standing up to the forces of evil since his birth.  He is the muscle of any outfit with brains to match, a rare combination.  He stands up for the little guy, being short himself.  He is the steadfast protector of the porch, car, house and anywhere else he resides from intruders furry or not.  Don't let the tough exterior fool you though; he's a pushover for a pretty girl...especially blonds.  

Little known fact - He's pretty vain, constantly grooming to make sure he looks super handsome in his uniform.  Always ready for a photo op or to flirt with the ladies in the neighborhood.
