DDC#2 and S&SVSScrapbook

October is getting near and I got to start getting projects at least started for 31 Days of Halloween!  More deets to come on that fun event and if you want to know more check out the info HERE.

Today the project I got done was inspired and for two challenges.  The first is a wonderful new challenge blog called Delicious Darkness Challenges.  Challenge #2 is Anything Goes but gots to be Gothic.  Please go and see what this new challenge blog has to offer and to also be inspired by a fab-o top skull fracture of a Design Team.  Delicious in deed!

Next, the September scrapbook sketch from this month's Very Sketchy Challenge at the Smeared and Smudged Forum.  A place I like to call home bloody home.  This month's sketch was fun and I added an extra bit of interaction.  See the pics below to find out...Have a great day and go get crafty!
