Yes, my life is in transition. I am now getting used to life as a widow. What will this bring? Time will tell.

I made this piece using my image program.  No not your
sophisticated Photoshop but my trusty, easy to use, Printmaster.
Someday, maybe I'll tackle using Photoshop but not today.

I kind of like how this turned out. 
I have challenges listed below that I'm entering.

My daughter and her husband really get in the Halloween spirit.
They decorate every year.  Here is a sample
of their display for last year.  

Steps up from the street

The full effect

Trick or Treaters trek up the steps in droves for their 
treats every year.   
What a treat for everyone each year.

My challenge list:

Drunken Stampers  - Halloween
Everybody Art - Halloween
Haunted Design - Gods and Monsters
Inspiration Ave  - Fear
Quirky Crafts  - Something Spooky
Dream Valley  - Monochromatic

Watch out for all of those things that go bump in the night.

Great wonderful decoration for Halloween!! My daughter and I get in the spirit as well - this is our favorite holiday.
I love your piece as well - I've never worked with Printmaster, I love Photoshop, but it took some time to learn it properly.

Hi, visiting from IA, like the color theme you used, adds to the creepy effect.
