Purple and Orange and Green

Morning all, hope this finds you well!

It's time for a new challenge over at
It's challenge # 26 and the theme is Halloween Colours.  This means that your makes don't have to be Halloween themed, just the colours associated with it.  I love this time of year, I've sorted out all my decorations ready to go up next Saturday and I've bought a load of sweets to put into cups for all the kids.  I'm going to bake cupcakes too and I've got my pumpkins ready to carve!  Who knows, I may even dress up for the occasion lol.
Anyway, back to the challenge - this time we are sponsored by the wonderful
who are giving 3 images to the winner.  The image I've used isn't the one I thought I'd picked...but I like how she turned out!
