Congratulations all of you mystery-suspense lovers... it was a landslide vote for Dark and Mysterious!!

I apologize for the lateness of this thread, but I was in the car all day yesterday on the way home from OSSAS, so I hope that will be a legit excuse. icon_redface.gif I know... there is NO excuse! Hahaha! Oh well!

I have to say I am super excited about this month's theme, because I truly love the mysterious stuff! I can't wait to see all the awesome stuff we're going to post! Let's get started!!

Oh pechee... unfortunately it's really hard to say, because this whole thread is all about how YOU personally interpret the theme. However, if I was going to give some basic examples, I would say, think of a mystery movie. A character from that. Or, perhaps a dark historical figure... Jack the Ripper? Anything that you find to be mysterious or dark!! I know, I haven't helped you very much. I'm sorry.

Anything edible! I don't care if you mold it out of spaghetti noodles! icon_wink.gif That would be mysterious, now wouldn't it? icon_wink.gif

I think something dark and mysterious lives in my DS's room. He seems to loose alot of things in there.

Ok so I've never done one of these challenges before....when do we post our themed goodies? Any time during Oct. I suppose right? Is there a certain thread where we post it? Post it here in the General forum?

Hey Nickymom, glad you're going to join us! You can post your entry any time during the month, you simply come and post it right here in this thread. You can post the actual picture, or just a link if you want.

If you have any specific questions, feel free to ask, or, on the first page of this thread there is a link to the FAQ that I wrote up about the Theme Of The Month!! It's just plain fun!! icon_wink.gif

I like the idea of the Halloween contest too! My dark and mysterious is racking my brains to try and put it together!

Dark and Mysterious! I love it!

It's been a few weeks since I was last logged in. Just not time.

I love the marshmallow kitten and ghost, I made the pumkins before but I really like 3 in a row!

I made these cupcakes last year for a party and I think it fits the Dark and Mysterious as well as October's Halloween's! There were Cats, Mummys, Ghosts, Witches, Bats, Eye balls and spiders.Oh my!

I also have a link to some other cupcakes I made that fit the dark and mysterious.

I hope to make something else too that will be new.

Thanks for looking.

Good Luck
