    Fun! Fun! Fun! I'm going to go get some backgrounds made. The Halloween themes I'm collecting are: Bats, Cats, Spiders, Pumpkins and Candy.

    Are we doing ATCs only or anything goes?

    Whoopeee..... we'are playing...!! Anything you like long as its a bit dark and spooky!!!! I will try and make you some things for your collection.... I love Bats.. I made a cat for one of the swaps but could do more... maybe I should post what I've made so far for the swaps... there are some in my gallery!! I think Day of the Dead stuff could come into it too as its the same kind of holiday!!

    Wish I could pop over and watch you - that's an art form that I'd love to see done in real life.

    I wish we could all play together... I have only just started doing it but need to get more wax, its so hard to get stuff like that here in NZ.... I just kind of make it up as I go along... haven't really done any special techniques yet and I only have an iron..no stylus. I have some of the first ones I did in my gallery...

    Oh boy! Glad I checked in..I plan to make 4x4 chunky pages (of course), anyone else?
    The Halloween themes I'm collecting are trick or treaters, cats, pumpkins, nothing gory/bloody. Probably won't have anything ready until tomorrow morning.

    Thanks for the big welcome! Chunky page 4x4", one sided art, back side simply done with paper/paint and your signature/username. Yes, danglies etc. I'm so excited about this THON. Trick or Treat smell my feet give me something good to eat, lol.

    Aaaaargh! A Halloween-a-thon?! Be still my spooky heart. If I weren't going out of town, I'd be creeping you all out big time.

    Have a BOO-last!
