Day 28 of the S&S 31 days of Hallowe'en Blog Hop

Nearly there. Only 3 more after today of this epic marathon blog hop organised by the Smeared and Smudged Forum for the 4th year running.  Next there'll be Creepmas to consider lol. I will have to start them soon to be in with a chance of getting them the way I want them.
For all the rules the forum and Terra's blog are the best places to get the info. Including that of all the fantastic sponsors that have been lined up. There is a list still over on the right hand side bar of my blog should you find your self lost.
I'm hoping to get a bigger item done for the last day but don't hold your breath. I really should have been more prepared. My own fault.
On with today's item.One of the Fat Book pages that I promised my self.
Dilly Beans is just one of the oodles of fabulous sponsors along the way this month. This is just one of the images available in her shop. This is her "Framed Bat Ghoul"

A simple palette of greys, orange and black. Bat boy was coloured with promarkers with just a touch of orange glitter pen. I think you can see better at an angle.
With just a few words "Mmmmm Worms!! written in the gel pen as well. He just reminded me of a childhood rhyme "Nobody loves me, everybody hates me, just 'cos I eat worms".
The background grey card was embossed with a sizzix folder. I wanted more texture, so I borrowed Lady Brayton's idea of the fruit net. Thanks LB  :D

Not a great deal more to add except to say 
That's your lot from this cubby hole today. I hope you went to see the lovely Valerie before visiting here and I'm sure equally lovely Sharon would show you a warm welcome over at her blog next.

I am entering this fat book page into the following challenges
Dilly Beans - Halloween
Forever Night - Use Orange/Black/Grey

  7. he is so cute, love the colour you gave him

  8. Oh, that yellow-orange is one of the first that I wore down in every box of crayons! It is the perfect color for him! The texture you added plus the sentiment makes me think he might occasionally have to spend a little time out in a cage. I hope not - he's such a cutie!

  9. This is absolutely awesome. GREAT coloring, love the layout, awesome. When I was a kid, we sang that little ditty like this "Nobody loves me, everybody hates, I guess I'll eat some worms." LOL Isn't that funny? Thanks for joining us at Dilly Beans! :)
