Hi everyone. 

Two weeks have flown by, and it is once again time for a new challenge at Try It on Tuesday  This time you can get your spooky or playfulness on because our challenge is HALLOWEEN. 

I went for playful Halloween.

I titled this page, The Teenage Girls Are Out Trick or Treating. These girls definitely have the ghosts in their neighborhood confused.

I sprayed my page with some Dina Wakely spray paints. Once dry. I stamped and modified these 3 fun ladies from Funky Fossil. They really reminded me of teenagers once I modified them. I know teenagers are rather old to trick or treat, but these 3 are going anyhow, dressed up in the best witches costumes. Yet because they are teenagers, and all into fashion, they are not traditional at all.  They do think think they are witches though. Smile.They even dressed up on of the girl's dogs. Smile.

That has the neighborhood ghosts confused. Those ghosts were stamped, fussy cut and then treated with a bit of coloring and sparkle glitter glue.

Be sure to check out all the art from the design team. There are some more fun Halloween pieces.

And remember, our challenges at Try It On Tuesday run for 2 weeks, and all kinds of art are accepted.

I hope to see you there.

I am also linking up to Tracey's My Favorite Color is October at Art Journal Journey. That challenge runs for the whole month of October but is limited to art journaling in any form.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. It is always appreciated.

I laughed at this cute Halloween entry you shared. It is wonderful, quirky, and so different. I love the background and how you colored the girls. I agree that those ghosts look very confused. This was a really fun entry and super for Tracey's theme at AJJ, too.

Sorry I'm late again. I have a sick kitty (Squiggles) who can't seem to keep any food down, so I've been taking care of him and cleaning up his messes, too.

What a fab fun page this is Erika. 'I love the teenage girls but I absolutely adore the ghosts. What fun they are floating about all over the sky and probably just about anywhere. You made the little dog fun too - his lantern is superb.
Such a lot of thought and effort has gone into this page - and it has paid off, its great!
Hugs, Neet xx

Such fun figures, Erika, and the dog is super fun. Love that background with the super colors. But you know the ghosts are my fave! Fun, fun, fun AJ page - especially for this time of year.
