Monsters take over!: The Burtonesque Dolls challenge

Click photo for larger view!
Since I'm always complaining about my lack of time it's completely appropriate that I should take part in another challenge!

How else would I maintain my chronic tardiness and time-management troubles?

This newest piece is designed for The Burtonesque Dolls challenge site. The site is a funky and cool place to visit, and is frequently home to interesting challenges ... which, of course, I've only this week found time, and inspiration, to join.

The current challenge is Monsters have take over the Factory: Willy Wonka's chocolate factory!

One version or another of Willy Wonka is viewed in our house about every other week, so I really, really wanted to participate this time 'round. I didn't come up with a good idea though until I saw the Toe Tag digistamp from Burtonesque Dolls' sponsor for the week: Strange Skin digis!

A Wonky Bar infused with Fresh Corpse Toe Jam! A full foot of flavor!
Now! With 10% More Jam!

This digistamp also struck me as ideal for a design including a photo of a friends' little girl all dressed up for Halloween. It will be the perfect "journal block" to describe a two-year-old, Trick-or-Treating zombie, don't you agree?

OK, back to the Wonky Bar: To keep things completely realistic I purchased a bar of Ghirardelli dark chocolate with raspberry filling to slide into my Wonky Bar wrapper.

Because a toe-jam-infused candy bar would ooze with red gloop ... would it not? Probably not. But there aren't too many chocolate bars out there filled with green-, yellow- or pus-colored goo.

Hungry for a sugary-treat now?

Yeah, before you head to the nearest toilet to hurl lunch, take a moment with that sickening feeling and let it help you on the way to your very own Burtonesque Dolls creation!

You've got until June 13 to participate in this challenge!
