A - Week 41 - Halloween

Hi everyone - time for another Challenge today! Before we do, just a little reminder for our Design Team Call!....

...we are looking for someone who ADORES using Digi images to join our fantastic new Design Team! So if you are a digi geek like the rest of us here then please email us to apply. You MUST have an active blog and be able to commit to one project a week. We don't care what brand of marker you currently use or if you love to use watercolours or anything else - we just need someone who loves using digi stamps and is able to meet the commitment which will be a minimum of 4 months term. Closing date is 19th October so don't miss this - we have a great team and you will love to be part of it! Send us your blog link and a short bio about yourself and why you'd like to be on the team and why we should pick you - this call is for a BRAND NEW CHALLENGE which will be here on the Polkadoodles and Studio 12 challenge blog on a Tuesday and the team is separate to Polkadoodles and Studio 12. We already have some amazing talent signed up but we need 2 more people to make up the team!

Ok, let's get to the inspiration for this week's challenge...


The Design Team have had a great time this week using all the fab digis in the store - check them out here...

The winner of this challenge will win a £10 voucher to spend in the Polkadoodles store!

As explained last week we have tweaked our challenge rules and we are now picking a RANDOM WINNER each week to get one of our great prizes! We're doing this as a massive thanks to you all for entering each week and we think it's much fairer that everyone gets an equal chance to win some lovely goodies, so from now on, if you enter then you're in the draw! We will still choose our favourite top 3 as well and they will receive a little prize too. IN ADDITION, you can now enter as many challenges as you wish and are no longer restricted to 10!

Our randomly chosen winner for Week 39 'More than one fold' is 

..... No. 3, Helen!

Well done, email us to claim your prize!

In addition, the Design Team have picked their favourite Top 3 which are:
No 4, Sue....No 16 Dawn and No 24, Sarah J
Well done everyone! Grab your blinkies from the sidebar!

Alethea - I found this cute little tin and decided to decorate it with papers and embellishments from the Witchie Witchie 2013 Download Bundle. I was hoping to fill it with goodies before taking photos but just haven't had the time!!! Halloween isn't really something we celebrate here so don't want to go too overboard with Halloween stuff!!
Asha - I made a treat box using papers and elements from the wickedly wonderful Witchie Witchie 2013 Download Bundle. The box measures 3"x3"x1.5" and can hold a generous portion of ghoulish goodies. It's the perfect spooky giveaway!

Karon - Have been wanting to make a banner for ages and thought this was the ideal opportunity.  Using the new 2013 Witchie Witchie Download Bundle and the Witchie Digi Stamp which has been coloured with alcohol markers.  The letters and the witch have been put on pop dots to add some depth.
Sally - I have had fun putting this card together with the fab Witchy Witchy Woo Download bundle
I made a stepper card using black cardstock and then downloaded a lot of the embellishments and my little monster image and chose the spooky background.  I cut out the images and placed them on the steps. I used my icicle die for grass and put some wobbly eyes on the jars of bats eyes.
Rebekah - Hi everyone, I have created 3 little treatbags for my 3 kids for Halloween this time using the great Witchie Witchie download bundle I have used papers and sentiments in these fab spooky colours to create simple tops for celophane bags full of goodies!
Zoe - I've created a sign to go on my front door this Halloween, using the gorgeous Witchie Witchie download bundle. I took the images into Serif and created this scene using papers & embellishments. I also printed off the Witchie digistamp which I then coloured with a mix of markers. I added the witch to my scene along with some Glossy Accents & sparkle!

Claire C  I've decorated a little bag to put some goodies in for any trick or treaters who visit, I've used Witchy Goth and papers from the fabby Witchy Witchy download bundle. I used Graph'It markers to colour the image.
Miria I made a black and white easel card. I printed the scene and images from Witchy Witchy download bundle , distressed them then I printed this fab web over the scene to give a even more spooky look. I added a sentiment from the same collection and some matching washi tape.
Lidia Hi! Everyone and for this challenge I made a Card whit images by the Sundae Seasons Cd I hope that you Like it!
