Oh! The Horror! #2 & Haunted Design House Challenges

Getting in the mood for some of that Halloween candy!  I am not a big taffy fan, but Walmart (yes the devil) has the best Corn Candy Taffy.  And I can only get it this time of year, where I live anyway. 
Time to stock up and get the munch on! 

I had to do another project for the Smeared Ink Forum, Oh! The Horror! challenge.  I went a little too deep last post and wanted to do something a little more fun.  The movie was Transylvania 6 - 5000.  Funny monsters who are not what they seem to be.  The main goal of the movie was to get a picture of Frankenstein.  So here is a picture of this loveable guy in his short shorts and ready for some candy.

I am also going to enter this project into the Haunted Design House challenge.  Challenge #176 - Who Are You Suppose To Be?  I love the idea of this challenge because it is suppose to bring out your inner demon of what character you were or wanted to be for Halloween, but could not.  I was ALWAYS a ghost.  Got a sheet, cut some holes, and had dad go to the hardware store for some chain.  Done.  I was too scared to really dress up and would love to have gone as one of the iconic monsters,  Frankenstein being one of them.

 Electrifying Details
