Get Embellishing - With Smudgy Antics

Week one of the challenge over at Smudgy Antics. This next two weeks we're making it super easy for you all. The only thing you must have on your project, apart from a stamped image (real or digi) is embellishments. We're not even going to tell you what embellishments to use. It's preferred that you come out of that comfy box but, even if you feel you can't, we're not going to stop wanting to see your art.
Even I have gone all cute - in a Grumpie kind of way. A little mini meander book, featuring our little friends getting all dressed up for the up-and-coming Hallowe'en season. constructed from a 12"x12" piece of brown card.
The set I have is rubber from Smeared Ink's Rubber Club. Sorry, the digi format is no longer available.
So far I've only got three pages finished, sorry but these are they.
The front cover
embellished with bat sequins, black gems and ribbon

 first page 

embellished with pumpkin sequins and ribbon

second page

 embellished with a gauze bandage, ric-rak felt and a sticky plaster.

The book has integral pockets that will hold little tags and/or photos of my grandchildren when they go trick or treating. 
The papers used so far are from Echo Park, My Minds Eye and Carta Bella. The images were stamped with memento and coloued with promarkers except the Mummy - he was stamped with stazon onto gauze and just cut out. All embellies are from stash.

Please come along to Smudgy Antics and show us what embellishments you have chosen to use after visiting my uber talented teamies and seeing what they came up with.
