Welcome to Magazine Monday! I hope everyone had a spooktacular Halloween! Here at the office, we had so much fun channeling our inner bride of Frankenstein. If you missed the pictures we posted on our Facebook fan page, we also shared them on the blog HERE. (By the way, if you’re not a member of the Paper Crafts and Moxie Fab World fan pages, what are you waiting for? Click on the links to join today!)

Like I mentioned on Saturday, we were blown away by all the projects submitted to our Halloween-themed October Gallery Challenge! Narrowing the field to three winners was almost impossible, but in the spirit of Halloween, these three designs put us under their magical spell!

Winner #1 – Stephanie Jake:

We loved Stephanie Jake's clean and graphic Happy Fright Night Card!

Winner #2 – Aga:

And Aga's gorgeous Quilled Spider Card was just too pretty to pass up!

Winner #3 – Heidi Van Laar:

And Heidi Van Laar's Yikes Card was just the right amount of spooky!

Congratulations, ladies! Each of you has won either a one-year subscription or the special issue of your choice. I’ll be contacting you shortly to discuss your prizes. If you’re interested in seeing all 469 projects from the October challenge, please visit our gallery HERE.

Wanna join the fun and participate in our next challenge? We just launched our November Gallery Challenge! Since the holidays are rapidly approaching, we want to see your most festive treat containers – gift bags, canisters, food wraps, etc. For inspiration, please turn to The Heart of Christmas feature in our November/December 2009 issue. This three-week challenge will run through midnight (MDT) on Monday, Nov. 23. Click HERE for all the details!

Happy Monday!
