Recycled and Altered

WOW! I can't believe today is the LAST challenge for the
This has been a very exciting month and a very challenging one too.
I have been so very honored to be one of the contestants
for the Princess of Halloween challenge for Simply Betty Stamps.
I have really challenged myself to learn something new, try different things,
and step out of my comfort zone.
I wouldn't have changed this experience for anything.
With that being said, this final challenge is to create and altered project.
The only limit is just no altered journals, or cards, please.
So for my last challenge this month, I decided I needed a new
pencil/pen/marker holder for my desk.
I thought I would do something kind of fun so I made a
 little scene around my holder.
First I started with a plain coaster holder that I picked up at a Thrift Shop.
Next I decided to use some Arsenic and Lace paper.

This is the side where the opening for the coasters were.
I used a cutout from K&Co.

I used Chris the Science Guy for this side.
I added some Glossy Accents to the glass beaker.
I also added a spider web, a Tim Holtz skull & bones,
and of course some bling.

I used some green DCWV glitter paper and cut out my "Boom!"
with a cricut machine.  I really like this font.

For my last scene, the "Explosion" scene, I used
Simply Betty Stamps Mad Scientist.
I added the skeleton from the Simply Betty Stamps
Chris the Science Guy stamp. 
I layed my skeleton down and glued him down like he had been dropped
after the explosion.
I added some Glossy Accents to the beakers, test tubes, and glasses.
I am loving this new marker holder!!
Please stop by and join in the fun at Simply Betty Stamps
There are great prizes to be won, and lots of fun to be had!
