Today is "Twas The Nightmare Before Christmas" Poem.... Working in skulls, spiders, whatever to make the holiday a lil spooky..... Couldn't think of a whole lot to do with this one but the fact that a good friend loves the movie Nightmare Before Christmas and was in need of some ornaments for his tree.......these fun ones I came up with as a gift! Hoping he enjoys them as much as I did making them!!

Simply Betty Stamps #4 Deck The Halls

This challenge was to deck the halls with something spooky.....well not my halls but my scrapbook! :) Took the poem and used it literally to spruce up my page!!

Wreck the Halls
“Wreck the Halls with bones and spiders
Fa la la la la la la la la
‘Tis the season for Ghost Riders
Fa la la la la la la la la

Don we now scary apparel
Fa la la la la la la la la
Dress up like Lock, Shock and Barrel
Fa la la la la la la la la

Join the chaos strike the harp
Fa la la la la la la la la
Ouch the wreaths are really sharp
Fa la la la la la la la la

If they eat you it’s their pleasure
Fa la la la la la la la la
You’ll become their Yule tide treasure
Fa la la la la la la la la

Wreck the halls with rats and roches
Fa la la la la la la la la
Hurry Christmas eve approaches!
Fa la la la la la la la la

Drape them all be dark and thrilling
Fa la la la la la la la la
Look their lovely ooze is dripping
Fa la la la la la la la la

Try a taste of poison toddy
Fa la la la la la la la la
Leave a gift, leave us your body
Fa la la la la la la la la

Dig a grave then dig it deeper
Fa la la la la la la la la
Leave a present for the reaper
Fa la la la la la la la la….la la la la!!!”

Simply Betty Stamps Blog Challenge

My BFF Sandy saw this and I barely had time to sneak it in but it fit perfectly with a great coworker and friends Christmas card....therefore, it isnt too foofoo cause it is a guy! :) Will have to make another one though for someone else and since she might like a little more glitz n glam I can really get crazy! :)
