Halloween Layout!!!! WHAT?????

Hello and Happy Thursday Everyone! And YES you Read that right! I have a Halloween Layout for ya today! What? You say? A Layout? Scrapper69? Theresa? Yup ME!!!!! :o) I started Scrapbooking 12 years ago when my oldest was 5 yrs. old and starting Kindergarten.... I wanted to be apart of everything he did back then and joined the PTA.... I was the Schools Historian and had noooooo clue what the heck I was doing! I had a friend give me a few pointers and there I was with a camera taking pictures of students and buying supplies for the pages.... Now mind you... 12 years ago they had the WORST possible supplies for scrapbookers.... It has come a long way since then.... THANK GOODNESS!!!!
I started Card making only 4 years ago.... and LOVE it! I haven't scrapbooked a page in about 2 years... I know it's been awhile.... But I have gone Digital with it.... I love being able to pick out designs and colors on my digital program and placing photo's where I like them to be.... Then all I do is print them out, on my wonderful Canon printer.... I bought this particular printer just so I can print my 12 x 12 layouts... It is much faster than the traditional way.... And I know a lot of you prefer the old fashion way and that's great! Today's Layout is made that same way and I hope you like it! Maybe one of these days I'll throw a Digital page up here and show it to you! On with my Layout!!!! :o)

(This is a 12 x 12 Layout)
Card stock - Black, Pumpkin Pie, Kiwi Kiss,
Crushed Curry, Lavender Lace (Stampin' Up)
Designer Paper - Finished in a Flash Halloween Kit (Hot off the Press)
Cartridges - Lacy Labels (Scallop Border) cut
@ 11 1/2" x 11 1/2" using my Design Studio
Celebrate with Flourishes (Title) Cut @ 3 1/2" and (Tree) Cut @ 7" I used all the features for the Happy Halloween Title and did some inking around the Purple parts... On the Tree I used all the features as well and inked the Moon and the Orange Shadow.... I used my Zig Glue pen for the crow then added some glitter for a little sparkle... I also added Dimensionals for the Tree and Title to make them pop up a little bit....
The photo is of my Youngest son who was 3 1/2 at the time...
This will be a 2 page layout... I was just pressed for time... Normally I have things done ahead of time, but the 4 days off has thrown my whole schedule out of whack and I hope to be back to normal by Monday! :o) Thanks for taking a peek, let me know what ya think!
Miislucky should be here tomorrow with something new...
Enjoy the rest of your week!
Theresa
