New Challenge for June, Anything Goes with Mischief Circus

First thing we want to do is say a heartfelt thank you to each of you that made our history by entering this month!  We are so thankful and excited to have reached the number of entries that we did!  You have pleased the dark playground folks here at Dream in Darkness!

Now, we are entering our 2nd month's challenge, sponsored by Hollie Haradon and Mischief Circus!  Please, please click on "Creepster Feature" and read and look in amazement at the wonders there concerning Mischief Circus!  She is providing June's winner with a $15 coupon code to use at Mischief Circus good on any of her products in the line of Holliewood Studios!  How fabulous is that?  You won't know how much you want this until you visit our newest "Creepster's" spotlight!

Of course, we have some fantastic makes by our own Creative Team with kits Hollie allowed us to choose and work with and fun was had by all of us!  

But alas before showing you these fab makes, we have to do some more pesky housework!  After much thought we will no longer choose our winners by  Winners will be chosen by the Creative Team and each member will also pick an entry that caught their eye to show you and comment on. 

And with much reluctance we have to repeat that this challenge is for your dark makes.  This is a very much debated issue not just here but on other groups as to what is dark?  Our tips to you and this does not mean we are the judges of the meaning of dark as it is subjective but we want everyone to have a chance to win our votes (of course we can't vote for everyone every month!!) but we prefer makes without embellishments or sentiments that can turn an awesome dark make into creepy cute. By "Dark" we mean Alternate, Gothic, Halloween, Steampunk, Haunting, Macabre and much more. Just No Cute.

Nothing wrong with creepy cute it is....well, creepy cute indeed! But our intention here is for dark art to be experienced.  So step back and look at your make and see if there is anything that might detract from your "dark side".  Sorry to be school marms on here but we want to have good communication with you each and all!

Now, do you remember the mention of those CT makes waaay back there???  Good for you!  Better memories than CT Nan's!  She is hopeless!  Well, without any further distractions here they are!

CT Nan  : Using More Brains and  All Hallow's Eve  by Holliewood Studios.

CT Anne a sneak peek of what is to come.....a wicked mash up using Spray Paint Alpha, Techno Toy Box, Welcome to my Nightmare and Hotel Hell, the Conservatory

Come back next week for more from Asylum Anne!

Now you know whose turn it is now! No pun intended!  So off you go dream on some dark dreams and then put them on paper or canvas or puzzle pieces, or dominoes, or wood, get our point!  Let us see your dark side and let's see who will win the awesome prize from Mischief Circus and a Guest Creative Team spot in July oh! and don't forget a badge for your collection!  

Our theme is always Anything Goes!

We will leave the lights off for you until the last day of June!  And don't mind the creaks when you come in to link up with Evil Froggy.....there's nothing under the floor boards..nothing at all! Buwahahahahahaha!!!

And dark lovelies, come back on June 7th to see who the winners are for May and see who slithers out with a coupon code at the fabulous Rick St. Dennis's store for awesome images!

Another kindly reminder... UGH! We will be voting on winners in the challenges from June forward. The Creative Team will vote and we will no longer use  You know what we like so woo our votes and take home the prize!

Evil Froggy is now on alert to watch for those NOT entering....and between you and us, he is one bad, bad, froggy!  This ain't no Prince in hiding unless...hmmmm I know of one Prince that we won't mention so let's not make him mad, shall we??
