Hulabaloo and a right carry on. . .


Hello everyone, Halloween is nearly here and my sketchbook characters are in a complete tiz getting ready for the big day.  Characters are jumping from page to page, I never know where they are going to end up and let me tell you, they are being very noisy. Vitton the teeniest, tiniest handbag dog (a Fairy Godmother's bestest friend)  has been given the job of  rounding everyone up for me, for the big Halloween party.  It's a big ask for a pooch that is no bigger than a paperclip. 
Some of my characters are on lookout for him, some are grumbling that he hasn't been to visit them yet. One or two are moaning that they have nothing to wear. 
Let me tell you, being Fairy Godmother to this lot is hard work...

Araminta (above) is all upset. she left her special magic pumpkin on the page and now it's disappeared. Vitton remembers seeing Delorez her older sister sitting on a pumpkin a few pages back.




Delorez doesn't realize she's in need of some Fairy Godmother magic....if only she would study more, she would know this.....but hey, I'm letting her wait here



Some WIP's are waiting to be painted in and are getting a bit impatient... Vitton my wonder dog is flying in and trying to keep Miss Blue Cloud calm...I don't want to upset her and start a storm. We've had enough rain the last few days and I don't think my sketchbook could handle getting wet.


Miss Boo and Little Mo are busy getting the balloons ready for the big shindig.  Little Mo is wondering if Araminta would like to borrow her magic pumpkin.  Miss Boo is tutting and saying not to be silly, that pumpkin is far too small.

I decided to have a little fun with Delorez. . . A cat drawn carriage to go to a Halloween Ball seems quite fitting for a Little Witch. :)






That's all the "Fun and Nonsense" I could come up with for this week and I'm  sharing with Paint Party Friday and  Sunday Sketches this week... Happy Halloween Preparations....xxx

ps. I'm getting this in early....I have lots of Trick or Treating to get ready...:)
