Elvis is in my Blog!





As promised here's a layout of my son in his Elvis costume. He was very thrilled with the results. To be honest so was I!! The costume took about 2 days to complete, 1/2 an hour for hair and sideburns and he only Trick or Treated for 2 hours.
The wings on the front of the costume were hand drawn by me, I used Glitter paint and made every dot on the suit (my attempt at simulating rinstones).
People just loved seeing Koale at their door, they were taking pictures of him, and calling other family members to the door to get a look at Elvis. Koale was playing the part very well, saying "thank you, thank you very much" and posing for pics. He loved it!!

The digital layout was created by me, the kit I used is by NitWit Collections called "Can I be Frank?" The star and paint splat is by Miss Mint. The Post-It note is by Scrapadelic.
