Monster Love

It's another challenge at Little Miss Muffet Challenges blog and our theme this week is almost any anything goes. The theme is diecuts or punches! I used three border diecuts on mine to create vertical interest.. Notebook Edge, Jumbo Scallop and Scallopped Scallop.

I had actually colored this monster about two monts ago and he's been sitting all alone on my deks since then! So I grabbed some blue paper to match and gave this guy a place to shine. I used a couple chipboard embellishmens, as leaves this time, and covered them both is Adirondack Acrylic Paint Daubers. I love how the silver goes along side that blue!

As you can see, I used googlie eyes again - first, to cover a mistake I made on the eye and second, because they're darn ca-ute. The gem embellishment was in the bargin bin at Michals and the flower center is from Whiff of Joy.

Did you know? In botany, flora has two meanings: A flora refers to the plant life occurring in a particular region; A Flora refers to a book or other work describing a flora and including aids for the identification of the plants. The term "flora" comes from Latin language Flora, the goddess of flowers in Roman mythology. The corresponding term for animal life is fauna. Flora, fauna and other forms of life such as fungi are collectively referred to as biota. Some classic and modern floras are listed below.
