Day Three of the 31 Days of Halloween

I was going for weird and I do believe I got it. The main images are from a Lost Coast sheet and were a mite bit big for ATCs. The odd eggs are from an Alice in Wonderland sheet from Non-Sequitur although I did have to change out the numbers. I had a tree in mind but by the time I got the parts to fit onto a standard sheet of paper AND fit the cards, it was definitely a bush. You'll have to take my word for it that it's Halloween in the land of Odd, though. Their customs are so much different than ours. They are vegetarians except for Halloween and then they eat all the spiders, bats and cats they can catch. Not the ghosts - the ghosts are the ancestors whom they honor especially on Halloween. These three guys are Larry, Moe and Dopey. They do know our culture and love to name their odd offspring after our oddities.
In all seriousness, check out the rest of the 31 Days of Halloween Blog Hop by clicking on Terra's name in the blog roll. She'll tell you all you need to know to enjoy all the amazing Halloween art and maybe win some awesome prizes. Or, if you've been hopping and you've gotten to here, you probably know Lisa's blog is where you're headed now. Unless you go backwards and then you'll want to click on Helen. Confused?? Me too.

ROMAL, "Confused? Me too!" Im going to have to say I stay confused!!
And the words you wrote on the roots of the tree, well it's not nice to talk about friends like that even tho it's true: unusual, peculiar, uneven, abnormal, and weird!!

I totally love your Land of Odd! And it don't really look like a bush, I think it does look like a tree, that was my first impression, is that it's a tree.
Did the flying monkeys make it to your house yet?
Peace,
Kristy

I still continue to be amazed at your creativity! (I know, you'd think I'd be used to it by now!) You come up with such fun stories – I think you should write a children's book! Such a fun and playful sense of humor! These are such fun and I love the background and the way you displayed them (I hadn't seen that before!) So even though I got a sneak peek at some things – I still get some surprises! (how did you know I was going backwards? )
