It's Two Old Bats Challenge time once again!

Hello friends and thanks for stopping by today!

It's time once again for a new monthly challenge over on the
Two Old Bats Halloween Blog!

Just wait until you see what the team has created ... OMG!!  And to help us get our mojo going, Diane (yep, my Old Bat partner) has created this fabulous inspiration board. . .

  Now I must admit, I haven't followed the mood board today but that's only because I'm having so much fun just designing whatever Halloween 'schtuff' screams out to me saying "USE ME!!"  LOL

So here's what I have for you today and I love how it came together!

I found this image online and printed it out onto glossy photo paper.
I've used the Tutti Designs 'Stitched Frame' (#562) for my background.

I've also used this frame to die cut my center oval from the printed 4x6 image panel. 
The center doesn't pop out of the die but I was able to carefully snip it away in the oval shape and glue it onto the black center panel of my black background die cut.

Just to refresh your memory ... here's a recap of how things are done on our new blog.

  • Monthly Challenge
  • Start on the 2nd of the month
  • Ends on the 28th of the month
  • Winners chosen by the DT
  • Winners announced on the 1st of the month prior to start of next new challenge.
  • We will be accepting Guest Designers ... let us know if you're interested.
  • There will be PRIZES  if we have 50+ entries.

I hope you've enjoyed today's share and thanks so much for stopping by!


You have until August 28th to enter.
Hope to see you there!
