All Hallow's Eve!

Happy 31 Days of Halloween! It is happening again this year and the Stampendous Design Team members are just as excited to be bringing a daily dose of Halloween inspiration. We had such a great time for the Smeared Ink blog hop last year with Terra that we wanted to come back for another year and then we didn’t sign up in time. We’ll still provide their hop list every day so you won’t miss out on the fabulous projects from them.



And of course, there are PRIZES!!! We have tons of prizes for this hop and as usual, comment on our blog and our design team blogs that get linked up here throughout our 31 Days post! See Official Contest Rules and then watch for details in our Monday post when we get the hop into full swing.

Our theme this week is "A Chill in the Air", perfect for the beginning of fall and the 31 Days of Halloween challenge!

Fantastic! I did not realize Stampendous had such a wide range of Halloween stamps. Loving all the tutorials-they are a real blessing for me.

this looks like something from one
of the scary movies - Chuckie would
be peeking out a window - I don't see
many movies any more so I'm kind of
winging it.
Do like the design and the muted
colors.
thanks for sharing.
