Graphic45 Halloween Rejuvenation Challenge!

Anyone want to win a fantastic prize?! Well, read on, my friends, read on!

Graphic45 is pleased to announce a Halloween Rejuvenation Challenge! Fall and Halloween are definitely on the way and we thought it would be fun to have an altered art challenge that's inspired by this colorful season. We're asking you to take an old object and bring it back to life with Graphic45 products! We've all got stuff around the house that could use a little dressing up. Maybe it's something you found at a garage sale, thrift store, or even an old item that's been sitting in the basement since Abe Lincoln was a boy. We want you to create a beautiful Halloween or Fall-themed altered art project from an old, random object you might have - - using Graphic45 products. It's the perfect craft challenge to jump-start your holiday crafting!

The submission deadline is September 25th. Email submissions to On September 26th all of the submissions will be uploaded to our Facebook Photos Gallery and the fans will get to vote for their favorite submission by "Like"-ing it! Voting is from September 26th to 7am on September 30th. The TWO projects with the most "Likes" will win! Winners will be announced on Friday morning, September 30th at 8am on our Facebook and on our Blog.

The prize? You could win our entire Christmas Emporium collection! A 12x12 and 8x8 Paper Pads, both coordinating chipboard die-cuts, and one of each cling stamp set! That's a $76 value!

I really hope that you play along! I'd love to see one of my Followers win this prize! To inspire you, I recycled a Starbucks Frappuccino bottle and turned it into a Halloween treat holder! (I did not have any treats to put in my bottle! Sorry about that!)

This is a very simple project, which takes less than 20 minutes to put together! But how fun to make up a batch of these for gifts or as table decorations! Plus, you get to drink a lot of Starbucks! I colored the witch with Copics, naturally. She's so horrible, you gotta love her! Don't you, my pretties?!

I colored the lid with a black Copic marker, then dressed it up with a die cut shape, a chipboard button, and some twine. What's a fall project without twine?!

Have fun. Rejuvenate something!
