Dottie's World Challenge.

I know, I know, all I seem to do these days is the Dottie challenge but I do have a good reason I promise, God only gave us 24 hours a day! How on earth are we supposed to fit everything in! I'll tell you how, you go to your boss and you say, "please boss, can I just work mornings so that I can use the afternoons to persuue my crafting dreams?" Well that's what I did and so after half term I'm hopefully going to be able to fit more in. (note that I said hopefully, LOL).

Anyhow, for now, limited blogging it has to be. It's Nicola's challenge this weeek and this is what she said;
A is for Acetate with a hint of pink!!It can be a whole acetate card,an aperture of acetate,an embelishment as long as Acetate is there some where & as October is Breast Cancer awareness month I'd like to see some pink!!!

Here's what I came up with....



A tranquil yet slightly grubby everyday house it seems.......
Arrrrrhhhhhh! Who's that looking through the window!!!!!



Eeek! Have you ever seen such a scary sight in your life? (play along with me, the kids have to think they're convincing!) LOL.

As you may have noticed all of my Halloween projects have not only used the Halloween download collection but they've all got the same product range in common; Imaginisce Hallowhimsy check it out.
