Roni just shared and Jenn is next.
DAY 25 of the 31 Days of Halloween event.  
To find out who the daily winners are click HERE, also Terra's Blog.  She is the first one on the Wicked Blogger List located to your left.  

If you have not realized by now, I tend to have lots in posts.  Well this one is eeeexxxxtttaaaa get ready.  There are many more photos of my project for today that will be in the later part of this post.  I will make them small so that you can scroll quickly.  You can click on pics to enlarge if you would like to take a close look.

It is Smeared Ink Friday, so only Smeared Ink images only on your project today for 31 Days of Halloween.  Which is also the challenge over at Smudgy Antics.  Get those stamps out and come and play.

Punk You Girl has their Halloween #5 theme challenge on til' the end of the month.  Great how one project can fit a number of challenges.  You need to check out the DT (design team) inspiration...wonderful!

Smeared and Smudged Forum has month long challenges as well.  Awesome themes and so much creativity over there, gotta join!  I am going to enter this in the Rock N Rolla Challenge.  This month is a song called Ava Adore by The Smashing Pumpkins.

Chromatic Craze is a challenge blog using a combo of colors for inspiration.  You must use 3 out of the four colors in your project.  Small amounts of other colors may be used.  This is Challenge #4 that I will be placing my project.  Check out the DT's work...they have done some fabulous pieces for this color challenge.

The project today is a Halloween themed Explosion Box.  I have used only Smeared Ink stamps from a past Smeared Ink Rubber Club offering, Morte (June 2013).  The song inspired me by all the different rooms and the cool weirdness throughout.  Also the main singer in every scene.  My main screaming head is seen from inside and out throughout all the different layers, sliders, and folds.

I pulled out the coveted Halloween paper and got down to business.  It is a lot of work, but once you get going they are so fun.  I think that I am going to try to collect pictures of all family members through out the years, looking creepy or funny or weird and place them in the box.  Only so I can hear others say "What's in the box?!"
