Smeared and Smudged BLOG Hop

Smeared and Smudged is a forum started by this AMAZING person Terra. It is an absolutely wonderful place filled with the nicest people and such talent. Everyone is encouraging of each other. I just love it! It is also a great place for me to show off a bit of the more macabre stuff I make/like and have people get it!

Last time we had a member blog hop it was a lot of fun so we are doing it again!! I invite you to come join us!

I decided it was time for me to make a Zombie Escape Manual. I made one of these for my son, but everyone must have their own. Remember, the number one rule for escaping the Zombie Attack- run faster than the person you are with!

Front Cover - with requisite bloody finger prints

Back cover with the image from the Smeared Ink set
just as a reminder of what really needs to get done (and who is best able to do so).

Inside pages with escape routes, anatomy reminders,
and lots of places to make notes and plans.

I hope you have enjoyed my creation for today's hop and be certain to check out what everyone else has created. Here is the list of participants. After you visit them all- it is your turn to go CREATE SOMETHING!

Full list
