A Spooky Challenge

It's that time of year again.  Time for my favorite holiday...Halloween!  You may ask why Halloween is my favorite holiday, I'll tell you...The only pressure there is for Halloween is to out do myself from last year and make sure we have enough candy (preferably chocolate) on hand. 

I know some people love Christmas or Hanukkah and can't wait for it. I'm not knocking it.  I actually love the lights etc.  For me, there's way too much pressure to make things perfect and purchase that perfect gift or purchase gifts just because you know you have to. 

To me, Halloween is all about fun and being creative.  To make my point clear, I've included a few pictures from our last couple of Halloween parties:

This is not the real Gene Simmons

 That is me on the left and my awesome husband on the right.
 
Here are some "awfully" appetizing hors d'oeurves .
 




These worms are made from jello, cool whip and food coloring. Gross, huh? Not many people ate them because they looked a little too real.
 
Anyway needless to say, I LOVE Halloween.
 
On to the challenge:
The challenge is, should you accept it..
Make a Halloween scene.
 
It can be whatever you want: gory, gross, funny, artsy, modern, traditional, scary, friendly...whatever you want to make.
 
Just post it by October 31st.   If you can't post it by then, post it whenever you get to it!
 
Have fun and remember it's all about fun!

  3. I was just thinking about pulling out the halloween things. I bought a few little things at dollar tree. I have a few ideas maybe they can all come together to meet your challenge, at least fun to try.
