I sooooooooo love that necklace Bonnie, even though I'm scared of spiders. We seem to have been invaded recently by some monsterous ones......

Yup, a truly lovely mood board Cornish, liking the theme. Is that an Elvgren picture in the top right corner? I bought a book of his pictures for my BF's birthday but he just sniggered embarrasedly and put the book away. He told me later he thought the pictures were childish and smutty. :!: . I asked for the book back and it now sits on my coffee table for all the world to see. Smutty! I ask you. The man's strange.

Just done a quick search on Elvgren and it reminds me of the Varga girls pin ups, I nearly used one. The top right is Halloween Girl by KagamiNoir, i just love it.

This is Happy Haloween by Gil Elvgren and is the image I was thinking of. Your Kagame Noir image is similar and in the same vein. They're both very pretty and girly. Sexy in a non-smutty way.

One thing I haven't said about this Challenge. There will be a Prize for the best entry, I don't even know what the prize is yet but it will be fab.
As I will be blogging and Tweeting about this, I'm going to insert a rule for the challenge, you must have at least 5 posts on this forum to enter.

Thats a good idea Cornish. Sometimes people need a bit of help to break the ice and start chatting.

Gillian, why can't you enter competitively? Are you barred because you are a 'special moderator extraordinaire'?

In a nutshell, Pru,yeah. It's from choice though and not enforced. I didn't feel it was worth the risk of someone thinking it was nepotistic should 1 of the mods or admins win. (It also saves me the stress of "Oscar Face" Laughing )

I'm with Gillian, I love making something but I don't want to be in the running for a prize. And also the stress of the Oscar Face. Laughing

Ok, what's Oscar Face? I get the idea, but I just tried to Google it, up popped this poor chap called Oscar and something to do with face transplants. Embarassed
As for not entering, seems a shame, isn't there some way of introducing an anonymous voting system ? where we could all vote for our personal favourite, unable to vote for ourselves and only one vote per email address?
Just a thought.
In all systems there is room for corruption, NOT, that I'm suggesting in any way shape or form that this is what would take place here? Blimey, one really has to cover all basis.
And maybe this Oscar Face thingie is too stressing or is distressing?

Ah Debs, "Oscar Face" is a a phrase I coined following a competition on another forum and makes reference to the face celebrities pull at awards night (Oscars, BAFTA's etc) when they're hoping they're going to win but don't want anyone to know that they're bothered and then have to pretend they're happy that the other celebrity won.
You make a good suggestion about the voting and It'll probably be discussed when Tinker's back from holiday.

Batty hon that's a fab idea about the voting and I agree with Odonata we'll discuss it with Tinker when she's back. But I will always take myself out of the running as I set the challenges and I don't think it's fair I should be up for winning anything. Taking part is enough for me Very Happy

I understand where your coming from Cornish, but, well, you know, it's a bit Sad , but then I also agree with the "Not In It To Win It".

Gillian, thanks for that, I've got a question over on Lampworking can either of you help me out?

I saw that question, Debs, but it's all double dutch to me. I haven't got a kiln either and don't do lampworking I'm afraid. Yet Very Happy

Once you start lampworking Gillian, there is no turning back, it is very, very, addicive, I've jsut saved up the money for a semi pro set up and DH is buy me a kiln, it's for my b'day, Christmas and the following 5 years or more of b'days and Christmas's.
Hope no one minds me discussing this on the monthly, sorry Girls / woman / ladies, fellow jewellers Smile
