Some of you can't participate all month long, and that's okay! Only Wicked Bloggers and Horrifying Hoppers are up for the grand prize drawing, but if you can't do either of those you will still have the chance to win some Lurker prizes! We will be hiding scavenger hunt pictures randomly throughout the month on various participating blogs...if you find one on any given day, you will be put in for that day's freebie drawing. It may be a coupon, a free digi, or a Halloween goodie, who knows! We are working on some great sponsor prizes for the scavenger hunt this year, and it will be well worth your time to visit every once in a while
Scavenger Items will be hidden randomly on the Wicked Blogs, and are not guaranteed to be available every day. You will have to visit blogs to find them. If you find one, you will email and let us know exactly where it was and your name will go into that scavenger item's drawing. Each person who finds the "hidden" picture will get one entry. The drawing for each scavenger prize will be the day after it was posted and winners will be chosen by random number based on who emailed. Wicked Bloggers are able to participate and find scavenger pictures as well, unless it is hidden on their own blog

tims tag september

Finally got time to do Tims september tag, I have done the metal tape thing before so nothing new there.  Since most of my Tim tags have a bit of a Halloween feel I thought to make another Halloween one afterall it's almost October. Used the metal tape and TH embossing folder, added some rose ribbon and the letters BOO. The hardest part was to make the barbed wire, but I think it turned out great. Because of the  metal tape it was real hard to take a good pic, so a took a few.

If you want to see more Halloween projects , check out the  31 Days of Halloween 4 the  4th annual Halloween/Day of The Dead celebration on Smeared and Smudged. I will be participating as a Wicked Blogger. The blog hop list with all my fellow wicked bloggers will be on my blog soon.
See you for the 31 days on October first.

This is my entry for the Haunted Design Hause Challenge "I'm Melting" ,
The crayon melting is not my idea I saw it somewhere on the internet and wanted to try it and this challenge seems perfect for it. It is harder then it seems to melt the crayons and keep it from becoming mud. The background is a swirl stamp, stamped in red, organge and yellow. The dragon is a Rick St. Dennis image .Guess who melted the crayons huh?  That's what you get when dragons come and play with your crayons lol.

Smudgy Antics Colour challenge

This week it's a colour challenge again at Smudgy Antics, use at least three of the colours:
I had a hard time tinking of what to make using these colours, because they are yellow , black and different shades of grey..........and then I thought  50 shades of grey..........but  I didn't have the right images for that. Then Ike came to the rescue and she gave me an awesome digi of hers (Ike is so talented and she also designs for Smeared Ink so you can find her digi's in the SI shop also)  and this is the result.
O but first I have to warn you, this is not for the faint hearted and if you are not above age 18 you shouldn't look either...........
don't say I didn't warn you.......
this is inspired by the book ofcourse and I used these Smeared Ink digi's : Vivandondra,
and Gross Anantomy heads will roll and the waternymph. I changed the digi's a bit (removed some wings and a shirt and added some nipples at Vivadondra and removed the water from the waternymph which makes her jus a nymph lol). The lady in latex is a digi from Ikes art she is called 'Long Tall Latex Sally' and she is just perfect for what I had in mind.
Hope you will come and play with us at Smuggy Antics, you can read all about the rules and the prize here, can't wait to see what you make.

Dragons Dream Tio challenge # 124 "in a heartbeat"

This fortnight it's the talented  Trace's turn to dream up a recipe for Dragons Dream Tio and she dreamed : "In a heartbeat" - a beating heart, a weathered timepiece, a bit of grunge , use at least one real stamp and it should be a tag.

The beating heart was the biggest problem but I solved that using a Smeared Ink digi called Deep in the heart. I coloured it with my pencils and put clear embossing powder on the heart to make it pop, the weathered timepiece is a clearstamp bij the house of three, I layered it to give it more dimension. At the top is a piece of embossing  aged with paint  for the grunge. Then I've added some bling, roses and a metal corner to finish this tag.

Hope you will all enter the challenge again, so much fun seeing all your great entries!
I will enter this tag in the following challengens:  challenge 43 creepy tags
