I am actually in Australia for October so everything is scheduled - I hope it all goes to plan!
I will not be in my craft room but still had to take part!!

I will be offering some spot prizes...

and some of you know that I usually offer my makes as a giveaway, posting anywhere.
 If you would like my 31DOH book please add one of your Halloween makes to the linky at the bottom...

My idea was to make a book of ATCs this year - combining this with my 'Year of ATCs?'

I made a book, upcycling some packaging and covering back and front with gelli plate pulls.





 I added pages and then started decorating the whole with Tim Holtz ephemera, stickers, embellishments and my ATCs.





Each day I will add a new ATC...

This is today's ATC for Day 17 of 31 DOH, Day 290 of 'A Year of ATCs?':


Recipe:

Base - black card
Background - Distress Oxides
Shaping - Tonic ATC Collection Dies
Image - Another of my favourites - Devil Boy from Smeared Ink
Embellishments - Doodled spider



Happy Hopping!



See you again tomorrow!


Ike's World Challenges #99


Today I would like to show you my makes for Ike's World Challenges!

The current Challenge (#99) is Anything Goes with an Optional Twist -
Autumn

and this is my midway post...


If you pop over to Ike's World Challenges you will find there is a super freebie to pick up...


Howloween


You could use this for the Challenge - but your image is free choice -

You may have been following my 31 DOH - in the course of hopping through this and looking at Mary's Facebook page, I came across this rhyme

Image result for scarecrows, corn rows, pumpkins on the vine

 I was going to use this in my layout ... but I stayed with the spirit of 31 Days of Halloween...

 I have used Autumn colours with Halloween images:
Witch Silhouette







I used Serif Craft Artist 2 and some papers from Dragons Lair Designs (no longer trading) -
and combined them with the images to make a Happy Halloween layout!

Look forward to seeing your creations in Challenge #99...

You might have seen my matching ATC in my 31DOH book...

Happy Crafting!
