Halloween Is In The Air

My fellow crafters...I have a question for you. Does it bother anyone to have individuals join your blog or follow your blog just to enter a challenge and then once the challenge is over they remove their follower status?

I try to follow everyone that is either following me or has participated in any of my challenges, therefore I am aware of the difficulty in viewing all the blogs that one might follow but to actually remove your name immediately following the end of a challenge...hmmm...it kinda makes me wonder. It has happened twice to me and I am hoping that it is common and not intended to be a direct insult or anything. So I thought I would ask you guys for your thoughts and insight.

At any rate I hope that I haven't said or posted anything distasteful and if I have please note that it was not intentional.

Okay, so do I have something to share? Well yes I do.  I finished the month of October for my Easel Calendar that I have been working on this year.  Only two more months to go!

I'd like to enter this layout in the following challenges:

We Do Doobadoo Challenge 17 - Halloween
Order of the Opus Gluei Challenge 194 - Ghostly Goin On
613 Avenue Create - Anything Goes

I also altered a Graphic 45 Matchbox with mini album inspired by Maria of "Paperiah".  Click here to view the original creation as well as more of her beautiful creations.  She also offer classes for her projects.  I just took one look and went for it.  This is the month of Goblins and such and I found the Happy Haunting paper collection perfect for this time of year. About 6 photos coming up, so be patient.

I stuck in a few photos just to see how this could truly be a mini album should I decide to give it as a gift to someone that is a Halloween fanatic (my opinion).

Catch The Bug Challenge - October Bingo (orange + witch)
Glitter and Sparkle - challenge 107 Use Some Orange
Anything But A Card - Challenge 40 Autumn Magic (colors of Autumn with the magic of Halloween)

That's all for today and thank you for stopping by if only for a minute or two.  We always enjoy the company.

Stay healthy, Be Safe and Create Beauty Where ever you are.

Wow, both your easel and your matchbox are really wonderful! The Vintage feel of the first is great! I love Graphics 45 and I love what you have done with it. And no you did not say anything distasteful, I couldn't agree more with your words. Thanks so much for being spooky with us at Opus Gluei!!

What an interesting mini album you created! Yes Halloween colours are indeed part of the autumn shades!
There is a lovely liveliness to your piece...well done!
There is quite a lot that happens out there in Blogland that is disturbing....I don't understand rudeness at all!
We are looking at the total disregard for our challenge criteria and trying to figure how one item can fit 20+ challenges...I have a smile when I think of all that finding and linking ...too tedious for me.
Now let me say thank you for linking to Anything But A Card and treasure those bloggers who treasure you! Like true friends they are special!

Hi! I don't think we've seen you over at Opus Gluei, so welcome! WOW WOW WOW do you do some terrific items. Your easel calendar is so beautiful. I also think this mini Halloween album is amazing. The colors and papers you've put together really show that Graphic 45 paper to its best advantage and make an album that a Halloween fanatic will love!

I understand your frustration with people following, often for giveaways, and then un following. It happens and frustrates me too. I guess we just have to feel sorry for people that behave that way and just enjoy our crafting anyway. You do lovely items, I hope you come back over for more challenges with us at Opus Gluei!

Hello, Lesia,
this mini album is just amazing! I can't find the right words to say how much I like it, anyway I can tell you that if I would receive such a present from a friend of mine I would be very very happy!
I saw some of Maria's albums and she is a great inspiration.
First of all, the shape of the album is original and creative. I have never seen something like that before. Then, the choice of papers is gorgeous. Graphic 45 papers are some of the best, or maybe the best. I have seen great projects with G45 papers and I wonder why I have been so lazy till now and not bought yet some of them.
Moreover, even if the photos are little, I can see your work is so accurate! You have put into this craft not only so much time and effort, but also and especially a lot of love!
