November Crop

The time has come to announce our next exciting Crop Challenge:

What with it being Halloween Season it seems fitting (and a little predictable... forgive me!) to set a Halloween Theme.

All entries must contain at least five of the following elements:

  • orange cardstock
  • halloween themed paper
  • black cardstock
  • the colour green (as gruesome as possible!)
  • a witch
  • a wizard
  • a skeleton
  • a ghost
  • a spider's web
  • a pumpkin
  • a black cat
  • a witch's broom
  • orange buttons
  • googly eyes
  • black ribbon
Entries can come in the form of a layout or a piece of altered art....

HINT: there is a good possibility that the winner will be the craziest entry there.... so the more exteme the better - it is Halloween after all!!!!!

The prize will be a packet of our gorgeous co-ordinating ribbon kits.

The next crop is on Saturday 1st November in Monkstown Village Community Centre. Entries can be completed prior to or on the day of the crop.
