SO ... my OZtober trip is over and I am back home!!

There have been some issues with Blogger over the last few days. Although I have not altered anything in my posts, my links have not been working, you have not been able to comment and the page has not displayed correctly!

For instance Day 25 displays correctly...but I am not sure about today - if it doesn't work please copy and paste the following into your browser

Just discovered if my links don't work you can't copy and paste either.

And I have just spotted that my followers list is also showing an error...

It seems that the link only brings up the incorrect layout. To get the correct page, it needs the specific day link. 
My blog archive should be alongside - but if the page is not showing correctly it can be found by scrolling down and down to find today's link....

 What a pain! 

Anyway do persevere in trying to comment...and enter my spot prizes and giveaway - all winners will be announced on November 1st.

Here's a reminder of the Spot Prizes to date - each winner will receive a special package from me - email the answers to

Spot Prize #1 - Day 1 - What did I add to the Owl ATC?
Spot Prize #2 - Day 9 - Where did you see these ATCs before?
Spot Prize #3 - Day 14 - Have you noticed anything in the book pictures that I haven't mentioned yet?
Spot Prize #4 - Day 19 - What poem did I use last year for my Hag book? (Scroll back through 31DOH Posts!)
Spot Prize #5 - Day 26 - Which 31DOH post did I add a poem?

Look out for one more spot prize...

and some of you know that I usually offer my makes as a giveaway, posting anywhere.
 If you would like my 31DOH book please add one of your Halloween makes to the linky at the bottom...

So, I am back but so far not had much chance to add any extras to my 31 DOH posts...still have a few days to do so....

My idea was to make a book of ATCs this year - combining this with my 'Year of ATCs?'

I made a book, upcycling some packaging and covering back and front with gelli plate pulls.

 I added pages and then started decorating the whole with Tim Holtz ephemera, stickers, embellishments and my ATCs.

Each day I will add a new ATC...

This is today's ATC for Day 28 of 31 DOH, Day 301 of 'A Year of ATCs?':


Base - Black Card
Background - Distress Oxide plus musical notes stencil
Shaping - Tonic ATC Collection Dies
Image - Smeared Ink,  Dead Dancer printed on the background - another favourite digi!
Embellishments - a little colour using Zig Real brush pens

This finished this double page:

Happy Hopping!

My daughter is here for the weekend - we started getting the Halloween decorations organised...and today we will be pumpkin carving...

See you again tomorrow!


  1. Awesome ATC today! I love the Dead Dancer image and the ATC contour with the dies.
    I was able to sneak in here by clicking on the title at the top of the post.... but I have to be really quick about it as it only allows me to do that in the first few seconds of opening your page. Once the page loads, that ability is gone.

  2. Thanks for that tip - it does work but you do have to be really quick! What is blogger up to???

  3. I also find there is no problem on my phone!!

  4. She kind of makes my stomach
    goes pitty-pat. I'm not
    much for heights and I'd
    never do a free-fall.
    thanks for sharing.

  5. Spooktacular ATC, love those colours! I'm able to comment via my phone but not from my iPad.

  6. Ohh awesome stamp with dead dancer, scary! And great pics of you and your daughter having fun!!
