Get up lazy bones - D

Good evening all you lovely crafters

Over at Eclectic Ellapu we have the theme of Halloween and I have had so much fun with this one. One of my crafty loves are skellies and I have the opportunity to use them for this challenge. 
I started out with 6x6 chipboard, an old box lid and stuck them together to make a ledge.  I cut a gravestone shape from chipboard also.  I screwed up loads of paper and randomly stuck it all over and then covered in modelling paste.  Threw a few seed beads over randomly (can't really see them though)  I dismembered one of my skellies  ;-(  and pressed parts into the mound I hade made.  I then positioned 2 more skellies trying to pull the lazy bones up out of his pit to come out and party!  A few other skulls scattered about help set the scene.  I stuck the leftover body parts to the headstone and a large jewelled cross was added from my stash.  I painted the words freehand as you can tell lol.  

Now for copious amounts of pics cos I couldn't make up my mind on which ones to use lol SORRY.............

Hugz to you all and don't forget the treasure hunt is still in play over at Eclectic Ellapu
