Day 6 of our Day of the Dead Contest!

Welcome back to Lost Coast Portal to Creativity where Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda collide to bring you twice the inspiration and double the fun!

We are now in Day 6 of our Day of the Dead celebrations!
Dia de los Muertos is a celebration of loved ones lost, a holiday to celebrate and honour their lives!  There's really nothing macabre about it as it is a joyful event filled with love and memories!  Day of the Dead is traditionally celebrated for 3 days, from Oct 31 through to Nov 2, so we will continue with our daily offerings until Nov 2.  Then visit us again on Nov 5, 8, 12 and 15 for tons of fabulous DOTD creations by my fellow LCDesigners!

Here's a lovely 3 minute short film that perfectly captures the spirit of Dia de los Muertos!

We invite you to enter all your DOTD themed projects in the linky below for the chance to win a $15 spending spree to LCD/CV!  The contest closes Nov 15 at midnight and the winner announced soon after!
