  4. Your background is one of my favorites EVER for behind a sugar skull Katie. It's so bold, bright and fun that the skull actually looks "friendly" - which is how I like them the best!!! Xj.

  19. :) I really like the dark challenges with the bit creepy and interesting touch of dark dreams :) as well as the skulls-tamps :). The blog hop is a wonderful idea and the prize amazing :) - so I try my luck!

    The tag is a treasure of wonderful details and fine color nuances. In my eyes it is in fully colors-harmony!!! The color accent of the purple flowers are great as well as the crackle!

    Hugs Senna
