Two projects to share today

Well, it's Monday, and that of course means that it's time for a new Macabre Monday challenge at the Haunted Design House blog, but today I also have another challenge to tell you about, at Paper Creations Ink. I'm hoping to cross-contaminate and get you all to visit both sites by combining my posts.
First up, we have my Macabre Monday offering. Our challenge this week is "Lurid and Looming Landscapes" abd we want to see some kind of landscape featured in your creation. Something dark and desolate and deathly. Or some misty and macabre moorland. Or a putrifying, peestilence-ridden panorama. You get the idea :)



I've used elements from so many different people in my creation today, but credit should go to creations by rain, medi, tootypup, blazter, and The Urban Fairy.
These are the challenges I'd like to enter with this piece:
Scrappy Frogs - something that flies
I Did It Creations - animals
Quirky Crafts - spooky
My Time Made Easy - white, black, bright blue
Shopping Our Stash - spooky
The Paper Shelter - animals
Bling It On - no patterned papers
Collage Obsession - alter egos (I like to think that the black and white horses are both representations of the same animal)

And my second creation for today is to highlight Paper Creations Ink, where I'm a GDT and the challenge is Halloween. We're sponsored by Delicious Doodles, and I've used Spooky Haunted House and Grim Reaper in my piece, as well as paper from the Symphony of Grey set at Crafty Chaos Designs.

These are the challenges I'd like to enter with this piece:
Sparkles Forum Challenges - Halloween
Dream Valley Challenges - Halloween
Here Come The Boys - Halloween
Delicious Doodles - Halloween but NO orange
Card Makin' Mamas - Halloween
Phindy's Place - Halloween
The Poodle's Parlour - spooky Halloween
Making Halloween Cards - haunted house
Simply Create - shades of black
Forever Night - black and creepy
Simon Says Stamp - Halloween or goth
The Pixie Cottage - sketch + dark and spooky
