Somethin's a brewin'

Hi there friends,
I finally got some time to craft this weekend & got going on my Halloween projects :(  I've been super busy at work plus this is the time of the year when all those awesome fright flicks are on the tube so needless to say there are lots of distractions around! Anyhoo, here's today's little project for ya:
 It's a witch's boiling cauldron with oozing slime :) Look at what's brewin' !!! I used one of Lauren's templates from MTT that I've had for a long time called Pack a Picnic to create the cauldron.

 Here's a closer peek at the flames. I made these with some Brides flowers in a can (from Mikes) fold them in half & ink up the edges. I also added some TA Glimmer Mist in Silver to the cauldron for added texture (which I think you can see in the pic :)

Here's another peek at the goodies in the cauldron:
No cauldron can be complete without a few body parts ;) so I tucked a severed thumb & foot & yummy eyeballs! The smoke in the cauldron is actually cotton candy :) yummmm
The template comes in 2 sizes. Here they are side by side. I think I'm going to use the big one for Jordan's teacher's gift. If you're interested, you can purchase the template---> HERE. This project is just in time for this week's JUGS template challenge too :)

Thanks so much for peeking today! I've got more to share---> same bat time, same bat channel!
Gotta Go!
