Day 31.... HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!!!!!!!!

YAY!!!!!  It's finally here!  HALLOWEEN!!!!  I am so excited, but so sad also!  I really didn't want 31 days to end although I have a quite mushy brain from everything that has been going on!!! Today we have 3, yep I said 3, sponsors.  Smeared Ink, Strange Skin, and Wild Flower Kids!!!  There are no hidden images today, we will be picking 2 winners from all the commenter's today,randomly of course,.  The first number chosen will receive 1 digi each from all 3 companies.  The second number will receive 1 digi each from Smeared Ink and Strange Skin!!!  How cool is that!  So make sure to comment on everyones projects today!  I will announce the winner on November 2nd.  That give me time to recover from Halloween on the 1st!!!!  LOL  

Now before my project, I would like to take this opportunity to thank each and everyone of you for helping Terra and I take 31 Days and make it huge!  I am quite sure that neither one of us thought it would get this big when we started it last year!  I know we both imagined it but were never sure that it would go this far!  It makes me happy that there are people out there who love Halloween as much as we do!!  Thank you so much and start stockpiling those projects for next year!!!!!

Now I said I was going to show you parts of my Halloween decorations.  Well here are my mantle pictures and my potions dungeon!  There could be more later, like tomorrow, because I ran out of time yesterday and the sun has to be just in the right spot to take creepy pictures that you can still see ya know!!! LOL

So here is the Mantle, it has been decorated since the end of September when I participated in the Practical Magic Blog Party 2010!

This is what it looks like on a normal day to day basis!

Here it is with my Book of Shadows added to it! Also more candles!
Close up of the front of my BoS, which used to be a big old Atlas that I altered!(more deets on the PMBP post)

The inside cover!

Where my spells and chants and information goes!

Candle light make everything look better!!!  Just sayin!!

Now welcome to the Dungeon!
Lovely place to brew potions!  You can click on the pictures to see them closely!  Notice all the cages I have new ingredients in!  Those came from the $ spot at Michael's   they were all different colors that I spray painted black!!!

I even have lovely potion's ingredients!

Some already made potions adorn the table!

Some empty bottles wait for the new potions I am working on!

I think I may have left these fresh ingredients trapped for to long!  Oh well, I guess it's a good thing that I need powdered skull in a new potion recipe then!!!

Remember I will hopefully be back later today or tomorrow with more pictures from the outside and inside but for now I must part!

Also to win the prizes from the sponsors today, remember to comment on everyone's post from today!!!
