It Was A Dark and Dreary Night....

............in late October, there was a touch of fog scattered here and there, then I heard this sound....What is that?, I asked myself....walking closer and closer to the sounds of the night...........I stepped a little closer, and then I saw in the clearing this creepy old house, shutters banging, .......an old dead tree, creaking in the wind....so many bats, flying and screeching as I ducked in fear....and standing right in front of me, old Mr. Bones!  I screamed as loud as I could and ran right home!!

Welcome to the Artistic Outpost Design Team August Hop!  I recreated what I saw that night using the Gothic 31, Haunted Halloween and Vintage Halloween stamp sets.  The background is done with Distress inks, and I added a great die cut spooky tree.



Thanks, enjoy the hop today!

Be sure to stop by the Designers Blogs for details on their projects!

Gerry,
I love the expressions on the little pumpkin faces. Are they sneaking a look at the handsome gentleman who is showing off his hat?
