Going Grey With Scrap-Creations Challenge: Halloween & DT Call

Happy Tuesday! This past week has been a very hard week for my family and I.  Last Tuesday, not only did my father go through major surgery, but my father-in-law passed away as well.  My father-in-law was an amazing man, with so much to love to share.  While he had been fighting cancer for the past 2 1/2 years, the end came much quicker than we had expected.  So, needless to say, I didn't manage to get a project done for this weeks Halloween challenge, but I did muster up a couple of minutes to color an image for this weeks challenge.  As some of you know, Halloween is one of my favorite times of the year, but this year will not be the same.  Every year my husband goes crazy with decorations, and it usually takes him the whole month to decorate the yard, but this year he could only manage a few decorations, and it only did that for the kids.  We have been taking it day by day, and I know he is in heaven, but my heart is still having a hard time accepting the fact that we can no longer hug him :(
   Like I had mentioned this weeks challenge is Halloween and I colored Hannah Halloween, and she has a friend named Hedwig Halloween witch, that are available for purchase on Rick St. Dennis's Airless Chambers blog for a limited time.  Also, if you love Halloween, you have got to check out the AC blog, and the DT's is COMPLETELY amazing!!!!
    Last weeks "cut it out" challenge turned out fantastic...your projects were amazing, and I am impressed with all your scissor skills.  It was REALLY hard to pick 3 this week, but after much contemplation, the TOP 3 are:

Try to stay positive and remember all the fun times you had with your dad in law think of all the fun times you shared when you hit a low and remember he will always be in your hearts and hope your dad is on the mend .

I can only imagine how hard it is. I know you were really close with your FIL. I did not know about your father! I hope he is healing fast! Hang in there.

Love this image and your coloring!
