CHALLENGE: Tim Burton!

Welcome everyone!! A bit of catch up has been happening since starting the challenge.. first here is the "blinkie" (even though ours doesn't blink) that will be worn by our favorite picks each week.. so stay tuned for the reveal of who gets to wear this badge MONDAY --- as well as who is awarded our prize package for the first month :)

onto the current challenge...


What do you think of when you hear Tim Burton? Maybe it's one of his famous movies or one of his  remakek? Do the words dark, spooky, scary and/or creepy come to mind? Or maybe you think of striped socks and twisted trees? How about dark love or tangled affections. Maybe just a spot of tea...
Create your projects based on the pop culture reference "Tim Burton" and link up by Thursday at midnight MST!
