Sugar skulls and masquerade on day #27

I haven’t even been aware of this sugar skull tradition until a couple of years ago when I saw it in Blogland. :) See, blogging can be very educational. :)

I joined a sugar skull swap over at the ATCs For All forum and did these four.
I also made some bird inspired masquerade and they go perfectly with Inspiration Avenue Masquerade Ball . :)

If you’re in the mood to party on Halloween you’re invited to join me here on my blog on 31st October. I’ll have Mr. Linky ready for you to link your Halloween post to so we can hop around the blogosphere and spread some love around. :)

I expect for your to wear your Halloween costume to the party. :) Feel free to gab the button.

    i made sugar skulls two years ago, but it's so humid here that they just sort of fell apart. still. they were cool while they lasted.

    actually. i still have those molds. you've inspired me.

    i might try it again :))))

    I LOVE your masque girls.

  15. Hmmm, I thought I'd already commented on this post, so I'm glad that I came back via IA ;) LOVE this collection of sugar skulls (I've been obsessed with painting these myself- and now they seem to be everywhere I turn- LOVE it!)
