"It's Show Time" at The Burtonesque Dolls with a Blog Hop!

Welcome to the start of what we hope will be a funtastic crafting adventure for all. The Burtonesque Dolls  are open for business and we're starting with a fun Blog Hop so you get you meet the DT in all their crafting glory.

If you've arrived here from Catherine's blog you're on your way. But if you've just happened upon this post you can always go back HERE to the START to check out the fabulous prize on offer and the rules of the game.  

The theme for our blog hop is the movie Beetlejuice. I used the movie poster to inspire me. The B&W stripe DP is a free digital paper from the wonderful Jak Heath. Beetlejuice's suit inspired the use of this particular paper. I've used Magnolia Stamps Bride and Groom for Barbara and Adam. The haunted house is a colouring page I found HERE on the internet. The movie quote was also found on the internet and just seemed to suit the card.
Before you go here's the clue you need to collect from me....

" Could go searching for victims in the London fog "

Before you go to the next stop in the blog I have this little prize for someone who comments on my blog. I'll be selecting a winner using random.org on May 4th - the date we have our very first challenge!!! My prize is your choice of 3 wonderful digital images from Spesch Designer Stamps.
Now head off to Jen's blog to collect the next clue.

Good luck and have fun!

xXx

I had to search through your comments to see if I'd already commented on this one... I thought I had, probably because I fell over when I saw it... or maybe we talked about it in email. My memory and reality are often two different things. Anyway, you rocked this challenge Debbie! I'm so glad we're finally on a DT together!!!

Love from your pathetic friend who never seems able to catch up with her life...

Lynda said...

I had better make sure I don't type Beetlejuice three times huh Debbie??? Love the simplicity of the colour combo and of course the characters RAWK!!!!! Love it...too much fun. ooxx
