    April 2017 Monthly Tag Font Challenge with Digicats (& Dogs)

    Welcome to the April 2017
    Tag Font Challenge!
    with Digicats (& Dogs)

    One of earliest recorded April fools pranks was pulled in England in 1698 when several people were tricked into going to the Tower of London for the annual "Washing of Lions" in the Tower moat. The April 2, 1698 edition of Dawks's News-Letter (a British newspaper) reported the incident, which proved so popular that the hoax became a somewhat regular occurrence.

    The ticket shown was published in 1858, so the hoax was still being pulled well into the Victorian era. People were urged to present themselves at the "White Gate" for admittance, although there is no such gate present.


    This month I'd like you to create a tag, ticket or invitation of some type using one of the fonts listed below to a hoax. Need help? Check out the hoaxes database at http://hoaxes.org/.


    The prize for participating is my Umbrellas Mini kit 4. Complete all five of my challenges this month and collect the whole kit!

    I was waffling between Loch Ness Monster rides and a crptozoology safari (see extinct animals in their natural habitats), but the lure of spending a day at Dreamland was just too good to pass up!

    I love the entries so far. I based mine on a hoax by Edgar Allan Poe, called The Unparalleled Adventure of One Hans Pfaall.



    Kits used - Sherlock, Tempus Fugit, Through Time and Space Invaders by Digicats (& Dogs), plus an overlay (Taggers 05) by Creations by Rain and a mask (Masks 32) by April the Scrapaholic.

    Here is mine. I used my Carnival of Souls kit to make this page. Salem is my brother's new kitten. He rescued him from his workplace.

    Those are both awesome pages! There was a hoax in the mid-19th century for several days in which a scientist claimed he'd seen life ont he moon using a telescope. The newspapers all described the moon society and their life style and what the moon-ites looked like.

    So I'm wondering if that is where Poe got his inspiration for this moon-man.

    It was the other way round. Poe published his first, but it was quite comical so no-one believed it, and then the New York Sun published their articles, and apparently everyone fell for that one. It was written by a journalist, but they attributed it to a prominent astronomer of the day, which obviously gave it added credibility. At first the scientist (John Herschel) was amused, but he grew weary of answering questions and explaining that it wasn't him. Poe's story was published in June of 1835 (his editor at the time was Richard Locke) and the Great Moon Hoax, as it came to be known was written by the same Richard Locke and published two months later.
