Did you see that moon last night??? WOW, it was beautiful!!

Welcome to the next stop on the Michelle Perkett Studio Full Moon Fever Blog Hop! Michelle has cooked up some very spooky fun for you along the way




throughout the hop!!!

The theme of our hop is Halloween, but since not all of our participants and hoppers may not celebrate Halloween, please share with us some of your traditions around this time of year. Won’t that be fun!!

Along with sharing your tradition for this season, you must leave a comment at each of the blogs along the way and you must say “TRICK OR TREAT” in your comment as well! You never know where one of the giveaways will be, so make sure you follow the directions! ūüôā

What are the giveaways? Why they are Spooky Sally, The Haunted Tree and Trick or Treat which can all be seen at Michelle’s Etsy Shop!!

I have some really great candle holders for the Halloween season that I love putting out! My Mom was the big Halloween decorator – big figurines on the lawn, blinking lights and even spooky music playing outside at night!! It was always SO fun!

Here are a couple projects that I did for your viewing pleasure along the hop. I colored The Haunted Tree by printing it on acetate then filled in different parts of the tree on the back with Crystal Lacquer, then sprinkled on the glitter to stick to the lacquer. Cool eh?

I am SO excited to see you today! Welcome to the P K Glitz Bunny Blog Hop!

If you started here, thank you very much! The blog actually started at the P K Glitz Blog or you can just click the link to the next blog below to continue along the HOP and eventually end up back here! It is completely up to you!

You’ll see some great eye candy using P K Glitz products. All of the projects will have a Spring, bunny or flower theme just in time for the warmer weather!

Here is my project for the HOP:

Another reason to hop to each blog is to find blog candy! What would a fun activity like this be without some great giveaways? You’ll never know who will be giving away a little or big gift…just hop along and you’ll know when you find it! Comment on that specific blog’s post to enter for that giveaway. And, you never know what you may win by just commenting on a blog post somewhere along the hop!

To say thanks for joining us in our first Blog Hop, Janelle has offered a P K Glitz Easter Basket with $50 worth of merchandise to a lucky reader who returns to the P K Glitz Blog Hop post at the end of hopping to comment on what your favorite thing was about the hop!

The deadline for entering all blog candy giveaways is midnight Central time Sunday night, April 4th. We’ll announce the winners on Talk Tuesday for all prizes!

How’s that for FUN??!!

You can shop at any time by visiting the P K Glitz store. Take a peek at our newest shimmery glitters like the beautiful pearl colors that I used in my project and fabulous chunky embossing powder!

This is your last stop on the Bunny {Blog} Hop, so go on back to the main P K Glitz Blog to leave a comment to get into the drawing!

Have a fun a wonderful Spring-y weekend!
