October All Hallows' Eve Sketch Winner

The winner for this month's sketch challenge is...... Michelle aka Bubbachooka.  Congrats!!!!

Your "Nice Kitty" lo is a terrific interrperation of Suepup's sketch.  The photo just stands out with those spell binding kitty eyes.  The traditional Halloween colors puts you right in the mood for a spooky fright!  All the sparkle shines from the spiders and web.  Using the ribbon vine around the circle was a perfect touch.  Thank you for sharing this beautiful creation with us Michelle!!

Congratulations To Our Stalker Challenge Winner!

This month's Stalker Challenge challenged it's participants to stalk the internet or their files for a black and white image, and to then scrap their layout in a black and white or black and cream color scheme. They could have some touches of color, but at least 80 % had to be black and white or black and cream.

This month's winner ChiLvr met that challenge and created a layout titled Kiss and Hug which featured a uber adorable photo of her Grandbabies. The Black and White pps she chose and her multi circle design went so perfectly with her photo and her flowers were just a wonderful accent.

Congratulations!! You did an outstanding job on the challenge and you will receive a special goodie from me in your December kit, enjoy!

**October Layout of the Month**

The layout of the month for October is.....

"Dracula" by Beth aka Rabbit51!!!

This bewitching page just entices you for more, just go ahead and bite!!!!  Beth used the All Hallows' Eve kit to make this fabulous dark and creepy page.  The Kasiercraft 13th Hour Acetate shapes and Pink Paislee Phantom frames were wonderfully used to show off these classic "Dracula" movie images.  The Scrapmatt tree branches covering the one image gives a very eerie feeling sending chills down your spine.  The lantern was a brillant vintage touch.  Your collage is outstanding Beth!!  Thank you for sharing this creation with us and CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!
