Day 1- 31 Days of Halloween

Welcome to Day 1 of 31 Days of Halloween! I'm so excited to be your blog roll host for our 4th annual event, and boy do we have a doozey for you! This year we have 37, yes I said 37, Wicked Bloggers ready to showcase their superb Halloween and Day of the Dead projects.

Hopefully you will be participating as either a Horrifying Hopper or Sinister Lurker, and we hope you enjoy the month full of powerful inspiration. You are sure to see projects that range from creepy cute, to beautiful, to gory, to downright scare your socks off, but we know we have an amazingly talented group of bloggers this year and we will enjoy every second of it! To refresh on the rules and regs of the hop and the Scavenger Hunt, please see my previous post.

Now for the bad news, well at least for me, although I am hosting this years blog roll, I will not be participating every day with projects. I am getting ready for yet another big cross-country move in December and just won't have the time, but I am going to try my darndest to share anything I can. Be sure to visit my blog daily though because I WILL be announcing our freakin' awesome sponsors and prizes for this years Scavenger Hunt!!

In fact, without further adeu, here are our sponsors for today!

To qualify for the Scavenger Hunt prize drawing, all you have to do is visit the Wicked Blogs and find our hidden scavenger image. We will be hiding one each day and giving you a clue, and anyone who finds it will be entered into a drawing for one of the prizes. Each sponsor for the day will have a different winner, so today we will have four winners!

Once you find the image, EMAIL US and tell us whose blog it is on. 
(smearedinkstamps@gmail.com)
To qualify for today's drawing we must receive all guesses by 9am PST tomorrow morning. If you guess correctly you will get one entry into the daily drawing. The winner will be drawn using randon.org and we will announce the winner tomorrow.

Here's your clue for Day 1:

Just look at me you'd think I'm dead.
Two limbs a crossing behind my head,
Where I am seen grows fear and dread.


Do you think you have the answer? Be sure to find the image and email us!

Also, not only is today the 1st day of 31 Days, it is also a release day at Smeared Ink! We have some awesome new digis for you to enjoy in our shop today, here's a little peek:

Dance With Death

Danse Macabre 

Movie Madness

Freaky Girl

Halloween Henna Digi Single

Hope you like them!


Well, I think that was enough info for one day, don't you? Get to hopping and check out all the amazingness, and if you are participating as a Horrifying Hopper don't forget to leave your comments on each blog each and every day to qualify for the grand prize drawing at the end of the month.
