Hiya there,

How are you? I am Casper very pleased to meet you!

Great blog design and welcome to your new blog that you have set up in July!

I like Halloween too - My hubby's birthday is on Halloween!

I like your Halloween colours and it follows the theme that you are using perfectly!
Those images are unusual but very effective, must have a look at that digi image site - I like things that are a little different and not too main stream too!

Thank you for joining us at Kelley Kid's this week!

Good Luck in the draw!

Take care
Big Hugs

Susan said...

BRAVISSIMO!! a SUPERB take on this challenge!

love the layering of the label dies, coloring and the awesome shading!

I have to admit, I wasn't real crazy about these little grumpie things when I first came to SnS. HOWEVER, I am slowly growing a fondness for them!

Creations like this are truly inspiring me :)
