31 Days of Halloween - Day 17

Fantastic projects yesterday!! I'm still having a great time (the various bugs making everyone sick out there have been stopped by my virus protection) and commenting is one of the best parts. When I almost stopped commenting 'cause the first few days took 8 or 10 hours, my husband asked if I liked getting all of the comments and of course I do.
Every great ball has a photo booth where for a little less than a pound of flesh you can get your picture taken with your date. In this case the photographer was in cahoots with Seetharaman and made notes of what the couples were discussing. Plus our diligent scrapbooker has an ear for gossip!
The photo background is an arch from Stampers Anonymous. Chubby Venus from Rubber Baby Buggy Bumpers, Frankie from I Love Rubber Stamps, Monkey Man from Carmen's Veranda, flutist from Judikins, Susie's date and Simon Smith from Zettiology, Susie, Nosty, and bear from 100 Proof Press, Willa Witch from Third Coast. The bear didn't want to stand up and dance so he required major surgery and isn't dancing as well as usual. Don't know where that background paper is from. The images were colored with FaberCastell watercolor pencils before being scanned and in the process of being scanned got all scratchy looking. I liked that but fixed their skin coloring.
Tomorrow's post will be the end of the Monster's Ball and explain why the ball broke up a little early.
