Skull Appreciation Day Blog Hop + Our 1st "Skellie-Fest" event!

Welcome Friends!

We have decided to lift our LCD/CV stamps only restriction for Skellie-Fest as well as our current #13 Numbers Challenge!  You can now use ANY stamp companies on your entries BUT if you do use only LCD/CV stamps then your entry will count as two and double your chances at winning the prizes!  All other Event and Challenge Rules still apply!
Tell your friends to come and play with us!

Additional Note
The LCD/CV stamp use restriction still applies to our Grand Opening "New Stamp Release" event!  We want to see your fabulous creations featuring our stamps ;0)
The Grand Opening event ends July 22 at 11:55pm PST!
We are so very excited to be playing in the Skull Appreciation Day blog hop hosted by Smeared and Smudged for the very first time this year!
 Plus, we are also super excited to introduce you to our very 1st "Skellie-Fest" which we hope will become an annual affair for Lost Coast Portal to Creativity!
"Skellie-Fest" is tailored for our fans who enjoy creating with skeletons of all kinds!
We have 29 skeleton and Day of the Dead themed rubber stamps at Lost Coast Designs alone with even more available at Carmen's Veranda so we have a wide variety to appeal to your every taste and style!

"Skellie-Fest" is also part of our "New Blog Grand Opening Celebrations" and you can enter the same projects in all our current events and challenges to increase your chances of winning a prize!  To qualify please follow the rules for each event and challenge!
 You've got much to see and we have loads of prizes to give away so STAY TO PLAY!

The The Skull Appreciation Day blog roll is over there in our right sidebar and can also be found beneath our Skellie-Fest link up below in case you get lost or have visited us here first and would like to hop from the beginning!  I hope you'll be inspired by all the Skullie and Skellie eye candy and will return to play in our "Skellie-Fest" which runs through to June 18th!
We've got a $20 gift certificate to spend at Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda up for grabs!
Let's get on with the show!
