Oh how I love Halloween!! There's just something about orange and purple together that get's me excited!! I didn't think I would be doing any Halloween layouts this year as we are travelling away (and technically we don't celebrate it here in Australia), but ScrapFIT have a challenge that I just couldn't pass up!!!
The challenge is to use a Halloween song in the title of your layout. I chose Purple People Eater - isn't that the catchiest tune ever!
Now because I hadn't bought any new Halloween supplies, this layout is entirely made up of scraps!! I got the inspiration for the design from Page Maps, then started to dig through my stash for Halloween goodies - On a whim I found a boggly eye and popped it in the "O" in the title.
I also used on piece of pp, then layered on some black, white and word printed paper to create a scrappy effect (it makes for a very quick background!) The pumpkins are felt, and the spider and webs are Sticko stickers. I created the green tule flower then adorned it with a button. The title letters actually come multi coloured in Halloween colours.
I was going to add a picture of the journalling, but Blogger keeps putting it upside down. I simply cut out a piece of white card and then scrunched it all up, tearing the edges in places. Then I stuck it down using my ATG and added some pp and a web sticker.
Now if you're wondering about the photo in the layout - it's of Sophia's arm. I got a call from her daycare to say that a child had bitten her. He bit her good too - and cause Sophia is so good at talking she could tell me who did it by saying "Naughty Elliot" all weekend. Then no less than a week later this happened:
