DAY #1 OF THE 31 DAYS OF HALLOWE'EN

This is the time of year that we, the lovers of all things creepy, dark and macabre live for.
The SMEARED AND SMUDGED FORUM are hosting 
31 DAYS OF HALLOWEEN BLOG HOP again,
this is my 5th time doing it.... oh how I love HALLOWE'EN.
The full blog roll is on my side bar where it shall remain all month long.
Details of prizes, rules etc can be found HERE.
As usual for me I just have to start with POE.
 I have made my girls and I a flip over calender for this month,
bound it with ribbon.
Day #1 had to be Poe.
The iamges are SMEARED INK rubber stamps,
stamped and masked. Coloured with alcohol pens, pencils and ink.
 The cover and day planner page are on the DE-STEMPELWINKEL designers blog today,
where you'll see them later during the hop,
here's a sneaky peek of the cover...
 .... and of the day planner page.
 Also today I have an altered project to show you as its the start of the new monthly challenge 
you can altered anything you like... and you have until the end of the month to link up.... we love HALLOWE'EN projects!
I went from this..
 to this.... 
 Poe even made it onto this tealight holder...
mainly because to qualify for the hop every project must be stamped... real stamp or digi...
SOMEWHERE!
 The plastic mouse really gives me the creeps.... he started out just a plain white plastic mouse,
but after i gave it a new paint job it looks just to darned real for the rodent phobic dragon.
I don't think I can stand to look at this all month long! It'll have to go in a drawer!
Well thats day one out of the way.... see you tomorrow for DAY #2 of the 31 days of Hallowe'en.
