Dancing with Death, Day 1 of the 31 days of Halloween and a NEW RELEASE!!!

There is so much going on this entire month so I will keep
 this as brief as possible.  First, being Monday, it is the start of a new challenge here on Smudgy Antics.  Being October 1st, many of our fine followers will also be participating in the month long blog hop, The 31 Days of Halloween, hosted by Smeared and Smudged.  To find out more about the 31 Days of Halloween, click here.  Even non-participants can win prizes!

The Challenge Theme for Smudgy Antics is
"Dancing with Death".

***If you are a Blogger for the 31 Days, you may combine one of your daily projects with this Smudgy Antics Challenge.  Just be sure to read and follow the challenge rules posted on the left side bar and be sure to follow the 31 Days' rules as well.

**For those not playing along with the 31 Days of Halloween, it is business as usual here.  Be sure to read and follow the challenge rules posted on the left side bar to qualify for the random prize drawing and the coveted "Top Three" badge.  Be creative and think outside of the box.

  *Projects are not limited to cards.  We also accept and encourage mixed-media pieces, sculptures, art journal pages, etc.  Just be sure to use a stamped image somewhere in your project ("real" or "digi") and follow the challenge rules and you are golden :)
