September Train - "Music of the Night" - Sign Ups OPEN!!


THEME: "Music of the Night"
PALETTE: Colours of your choice

**As of 1st July The Brat Pack departs on the 1st of the month!!**

I recently watched "The Phantom of the Opera" for the first time and was haunted by the beauty and romance of it. I loved the music and this month's theme is inspired by one of the songs from the opera. However, the direction in which you take the theme is completely up to you. It can be romantic, vintage, goth, emo, anything you like!  We look forward to your parts!

You may make Tagger, Full Size, CU, QP's whatever you like - just be sure to let your visitors know what your items are!
You may call your kit/items anything you wish just so long as it fits into the theme.

Scrap Kits: 3 papers and 12 elements MINIMUM
Quickpages: 4 MINIMUM
NO PAPER PACKS (unless they are CU)
CU: 4 papers/overlays/elements MINIMUM (unless a script or action then 1 of is permitted)

We are trying to make our train one our visitors enjoy riding on, and some become disheartened to find a freebie very minimal. So we would like to offer them something to keep them coming back! And freebies are advertising for our PTU work.

NOTE: You have to be very careful with what you call things or use for supplies due to copyrights.

To take part you just need to stop over and join the group to be ready *s*

Purple Paws for Awareness against Animal Abuse - August Brat Pack Train

The Brat Pack Blog Train

For most of us, animals play a part somewhere in our lives - and for some of us, it is also a very big part of our lives! Why? Because animals love us unconditionally and never judge us, and with them we can be ourselves. They are the most kindest, loving and loyal creatures on the planet. That is why, when we hear about senseless acts of violence and abuse against these loving creatures, we cannot understand how mankind can be so heartless and so cruel to something so innocent and loving. Those who merely live to please their masters.

So this month The Brat Pack got together to bring you this very special tribute to our furry friends to help raise awareness against animal abuse.  Help us stop these senseless acts and be a voice for the voiceless...because if they had a voice, they would be sure to stand up for us if we needed them to.

Some of us have also chosen to offer our favourite animal shelter or charity and ask you please consider making a small donation. This is not  mandatory - just a request to consider. Many shelters and charities run solely on sponsors and volunteers, and those that are government registered are often only funded by a very small percentage. Any donation of any amount is always welcome.
So from all our furry friends, thank you.
