This is absolutely wonderful but what is the challenge. I clicked on the link and it got me to one single entry dated in 2004.

Hi, Mary,

Thanks for correcting the link. I have marked on my calendar to go over and vote for your collage! I will also post a link to your blog and her blog and tell people to vote for you. I don't care what the other entries will look like - I LOVE yours!

I love vintage Halloween - in Oct. I will post a collage I did some years back using an old image.

Would you mind if I asked you a couple of questions? When you printed out the images, did you use glossy paper or regular paper. If regular, what kind?

Did you write over the collage with a pen or did you make a transparency with words?

PS You can just reply to this email instead of going over to my blog.

Hugs, Julie
