Paint Party Friday....better late than never....some Día de los Muertos







 




Happy Paint Party Friday Everyone....

I have just about had the best week of my entire life....sorry to be so late in posting but you will all understand once I tell you what happened to me this past week....something mind blowing....something I could have never ever dreamed of in my entire life.....

New will come soon!!!!

I was lucky enough to also get a new request from a client for a Dia de los muertos mask for my paper dolls and have so much fun working on this....so I am sharing these super cuties with you all for my PPF submission......I have added these dolls in my Shop too.....

Day of the Dead (Spanish: Día de los Muertos) is a Mexican holiday celebrated throughout Mexico and around the world in other cultures. The holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died. It is particularly celebrated in Mexico, where it is a national holiday, and all banks are closed. The celebration takes place on November 1, in connection with the Catholic holidays of All Saints' Day and All Souls' Day (November 2). Traditions connected with the holiday include building private altars honoring the deceased using sugar skulls, marigolds, and the favorite foods and beverages of the departed and visiting graves with these as gifts. They also leave possessions of the deceased. ....Wikepedia.....

I will tell you about my wonderful news soon!!!

Happy Friday Everyone....and Happy Creating!!!
