ACEO Challenge #24

October! What happens in October that you love? For me it is 4 birthdays – my son, Grandson, a Grandnephew and my sister. It’s Thanksgivings [in Canada] and the best thing of all its Halloween and my favourite song The Monster Mash.
This song done by Bobby “Boris” Pickett was first introduced in 1962. This song is now 50 years old and still gets a lot of air time every October.
This challenge is for you to check out the lyrics to the Monster Mash . Choose your favourite line from the song and depict it on an ACEO or three!
Make sure to read the rules at the left side of the blog before participating so you understand how everything works.
When you are ready, upload your ACEO's to one of your shops and/or your blog. Then come back here and enter the web address using the Inlinkz button below this post, Each ACEO entry will be displayed at the bottom of the challenge post. Then others can click on the links to visit all of the ACEO’s created and explore the various blogs and on line stores. Don't forget, each artist may enter 3 ACEO's each.
You have until 11:59pm Mountain Time on October 21st, 2012 to submit your ACEO's. Voting begins on October 22nd and ends 11:59pm Mountain Time on October 29th. The winners will be posted on Halloween Night.
