Zombie Swap & Eyebrows on a Dog

I finally joined another swap through Val at Yarnigras Swapper Spot!  It has been awhile, but I love her swaps -- they are always inspired, and always include amazing crafters!

This swap was a Halloween animated zombie swap - - make a zombie based on one of your partner's  favorite animated characters.  I received an amazing zombie package from Kerry - - and she couldn't have created anything more perfect for this animal lover than Sparky from Frankenweenie re-imagined as a zombie dog!

This character is sculpted perfectly!!  Lots of great, gory details (look at the neck bolts!)  She also included a candy jar with Sculpy zombie head, a beautiful card, and fun items from the Halloween collection at Bath & Body Works (Vampire Blood Hand Sanitizer anyone?)

And then she also made this incredibly cool tote bag from a zombie T-Shirt!  This will definitely be my go-to bag for the farmers market!  She has a link to the tutorial to make these cool totes on her blog, so be sure to check it out - Tales of a Needle and Thread

I am so in love with Zombie Sparky that I think he will be displayed year-round and not just at Halloween!

Thank you so much, Kerry - you are an amazing artist!

My partner has not yet received my zombie creation, so I will have to wait until the end of the week to share the pictures!

On a side note, I recently decided that Henry needed eyebrows.  So I drew them on with some chalk.
Of course, I HAD to scrap this photo!

This layout is for Kelly's September Challenge at Kitchen Keepsake to use multiples of 3 on your layout:

Thanks for stopping by!
