High School Horror!

As usual, I combined several challenges, and this is the end result, a film poster for a (not-yet-made, but maybe he'll see this and start :P) Tim Burton film about an illicit party at an apparently-abandoned high school. Why doesn't the star of the poster look scared? Because she's the hapless blonde that doesn't believe in anything spooky until half her friends have been turned into zombies and she's covered in gore from the flying body parts :P
The images are Rio and Lili by Simply Betty Stamps, and the school building in the background is adapted from a Haunted House stamp by Birdscards.
Simply Betty are having a one-day-only challenge in which you can win some fab goodies, but you have to be quick. And you have to use a non-Halloween image from Simply Betty and make something Halloween with it. But never fear if you're stuck for inspiration, there's also a cool blog hop with lots of gorgeous eye candy along the way :)
The Burtonesque Dolls - Burton's School of Ghouls
Stamping Vacation Daring Duos - I used a child stamp and a school building stamp
WildFlower Wednesday - blog hop and stripes. Some super-cute Christmas and Halloween images on this hop, and wonderful work by the DT.
Tuesday Morning Sketches - sketch #59
Critter Challenges - school. I'm guessing that mine will be the only entry with "Bloodbath" on it :P
