I hope you are hopping through the list !
 You should have arrived here from Airless Chambers
and next is Dream In Darkness.

 If you have arrived here by chance, do go back to Terra and the start -
 and find out about the prizes you might win!

You will find the full list on my side bar...

In this post you will find more stages of my Halloween album...see yesterday...but also several DT makes due today...sorry this is going to be a long post!

To start off with - it's the start of Dragons Lair October Challenge - Halloween

All year I have been making a Dragons Lair calendar:

Here's October:

My 10th month uses Dragons Lair Designs
Spooky Tree printed with an orange background.
 The other elements are from the Trick or Treat Collection.
The fab spider peg is from Tiger and the owl embellishment from my stash.

Next - to get back to my album - here's where I left it yesterday

So next comes the motif on the back side - similar to the one on the front but this time 'scary'. I have used the Rick St Dennis designed rubber stamp skull from Smeared Ink.
So inside my box could be spooky cute...or pretty scary!!

Inside...I matted the interior with paper from Graphic 45 'An Eerie Tale'.

Then for the inside cover I added a postcard - the image from Ike's Art Here's Kitty
I printed this on a PixelScrapper paper.

I added some colour with Promarkers and distress with 'Scattered Twigs' and matted it on brown card.

This is my DT make for Left of Center Monsters Challenge
sponsored by Ikes Art

I then folded in the box end and made a spine and 6 pages - these were half pieces of A4 folded into 4in wide pockets. These could then slide on my spine tabs.

The first side of my first page has a gate fold card added to it embellished with a trio of ATCs and paper from Graphic 45 An Eerie Tale - and a pumpkin poem...

The ATCs are my make for the Creative Fingers Challenge sponsored by
Scrappers Delights

The image is Honey Anime coloured in three colourways with Promarkers, each image distressed around the edges and matted on a snippet of toning card.

So to recap...

More tomorrow...

Happy Crafting!
