Day 2 of THE 31 DAYS OF HALLOWEEN WITH SMEARED AND SMUDGED

I'm Lady Brayton.  Welcome to my blog!

I am participating as a wicked blogger for THE 31 DAYS OF HALLOWEEN blog hop hosted by the Smeared and Smudged Forum

I will be posting a new, stamped project everyday during the month of October dealing with the themes of Halloween and Day of the Dead. 
To learn more about the 31 Days of Halloween and to find out how non-bloggers can win prizes, click this link. There will be multiple prizes daily and a HUGE GRAND PRIZE at the end of the month!

 For your convenience, I will keep the blog roll posted on the left sidebar of my blog.  The hop goes LIVE everyday in October at 9:00am PST
You should have arrived here from Vee's Blog and your 
next stop on the hop is Lindsay's Blog.
The start of the hop is Terra's blog.


Today is Day 2 of the 31 DAYS OF HALLOWEEN

Here is my offering:
(click image to enlarge)
Today one of our many fantastic sponsors, Dilly Beans Stamps, gave the Smeared Ink DT some images to work with.  My work is usually on the darker side, but I totally loved working with Dilly Beans' quirky images.  These skellies with dunce caps are too stinkin' cute!  I love them!  The eyeballs at the bottom are part of Smeared Ink's "Babies of the Damned" digi set.  The eyball was attached to a baby's rattle, but I took the handle off the rattle off leaving me with a wickedly cool eyeball to play with!

The colored digital papers are from Crafty Chaos Designs which sadly is no longer in business. The white, crumpled paper is from oscraps
I am unsure of the designer.  Everything was colored and assembled in Photoshop Elements 8.  I used this sketch below from 
Graphicat Sketches and flipped it a bit.

Be sure to hop around and leave everyone a bit of love. 
You may find a prize along the way!
