Sorry folks this is a bit of a long post as i have a couple of other things to share with you.
Today is also the start of week#2 of the colour challenge over at SMUDGY ANTICS.
So this week i used colours i didn't use last week.... just to ring the changes :)
I altered a small desk of the cheapy ones from the pound store.
I used SMEARED INK PAPERS  that i altered with promarkers as i am a techno-idiot having no idea how to do it digitally.
 Mr Poe adorns the front of the note book.
I hope you'll have time to join us before Saturday when the challenge closes.

We at HDH MACABRE MONDAY, have a new challenge for you starting today,
