 Now for the Smeared and Smudged blog hop part of this spooktacular Halloween celebration! 
  DominoART is playing as a Wicked Blogger in their blog hop and for posting a project for 31 days straight we earn the right to display the coveted Survival Button on our blog!  We will also be in the running for the grand prize...but more about that later, let me tell you what YOU can do to play along, here's the deets from Smeared and Smudged aka Smeared Ink!
 Horrifying Hopper 
What You Have To Do: 
Hop through each of the Wicked Blogs that are participating and leave a comment on each project. No need to sign up, just start on the first day and work your way through all the blogs. All Horrifying Hoppers will receive a Survival Button at the end of the month to proudly post on their blog. The Rules: You must leave a comment on EACH participating blog EVERY day in October to qualify for the grand prize drawing. Your comment should be about the project or something related (i.e.-no "Here's my comment for today" or "I'm here!"...these types of comments won't count!) If you miss a day or a blog, you will still qualify to receive a survival button, but will not qualify for the grand prize drawing.
Sinister Lurker 
What You Have To Do: 
Some of you can't participate all month long, and that's okay! Only Wicked Bloggers and Horrifying Hoppers are up for the grand prize drawing, but if you can't do either of those you will still have the chance to win some Lurker prizes! We will be hiding scavenger hunt pictures randomly throughout the month on various participating blogs...if you find one on any given day, you will be put in for that day's freebie drawing. It may be a coupon, a free digi, or a Halloween goodie, who knows! We are working on some great sponsor prizes for the scavenger hunt this year, and it will be well worth your time to visit every once in a while. The Rules: Scavenger Items will be hidden randomly on the Wicked Blogs, and are not guaranteed to be available every day. You will have to visit blogs to find them. If you find one, you will email and let us know exactly where it was and your name will go into that scavenger item's drawing. Each person who finds the "hidden" picture will get one entry. The drawing for each scavenger prize will be the day after it was posted and winners will be chosen by random number based on who emailed. Wicked Bloggers are able to participate and find scavenger pictures as well, unless it is hidden on their own blog.
Grand Prize Drawing 
Doesn't this all sound like fun? I know WE can't wait!! But wait, I know you are now asking yourself "What huge prize drawing at the end of the month are they talking about?" In addition to some awesome scavenger prizes provided by some pretty amazing sponsors, we are offering up a glorious concoction of 31 Days goodies worth over $300!
How To Win It: 
Each person who successfully completes the 31 Days as either a Wicked Blogger  or a Horrifying Hopper will receive one entry toward this prize drawing. If you successfully complete both, you will receive two entries. (Meaning if you are a Wicked Blogger and you comment on every blog every day, you have successfully completed both).
A DominoART note from Leigh regarding the Grand Prize! 
If DominoART wins the grand prize I will be sharing the goodies with my Wicked Players so that means YOU are in the running for even more prizes by playing with DominoART this year!  Aren't you so glad you signed up ;0)
Happy Hopping and don't forget to come back tomorrow!
Domino Hugs!
