“Something Wicked this Way Comes” Half-O-Ween Blog Hop Finale: Balleigh Monster Beach Party by Leigh!

Howzit Creative Friends!
I have no words for what’s happening in the USA right now in the middle of a devastating global pandemic!  I hope everyone continues to stay safe and healthy during these terrible dark times!  Blog hopping seems so small and trivial right now but if it helps to keep you creatively inspired and distracted from the worries of the world and soothes your mind and soul then I’ll keep on hosting fun blog hops for you to join in on and have fun! 

Today is the finale of our annual Halloween in May hop as well as the last day of LeighSBDesigns Half-O-Ween Sale and then the fun will continue in June with wonderful new releases starting June 1st followed by the start of a new blog hop where you can share your Summer themed makes☀️

๐ŸŽƒ “Balleigh Monster Beach Party” ๐ŸŽƒ
card by Leigh

For today’s finale of Half-O-Ween I’ve got a card showing how Balleigh Monsters like to have a scary good time๐ŸŽƒ  The Balleigh Monsters started Summer off with a beach party at Shark Cove!


These scary lil fluff balls are too stinking cute for words!


I coloured up “Sun Fun” Balleigh Monster and “Party Balleigh Monster with Prismacolor pencils and fussy cut them out.


I used Lawn Fawn stitched hillside and cloud dies to create my beach scene and enhanced the die cuts  with Distress Inks.  I also used a cloud die cut as a stencil to add some “sky clouds” under the die cut layers.


 Shark Cove had to have a shark so I drew the shark fin to add to the scene!
The Balleigh Monsters and the Sun were added to the scene with pop dots.
