"Spooky" Halloween Layout with Sarah

Sarah here today to share with you my layout using the spooktacular "This is Halloween" kit!!

I started my layout using a white sheet of cardstock, I pulled a few Shimmers from my stash and sprinkled them on the background. I set that aside to dry and started to add layering behind my photo.

I knew I wanted my picture in the center of the page, as that would give me a lot of room to play and layer. I layered some of the papers behind my photo and then broke into my planner inserts and chose a few to add in with the layering.  After I had the layers the way I wanted I decided to bend up the sides of each of the layer.

Once my sprinkles were dry in the background, I went ahead and added my photo and its layers to the background and worked from there. I like to do this a lot - get my photo where I like it and then work the rest of the page from there. I looked through my planner inserts again and decided to cut the cute black cat sitting on the pumpkin out and use it as an embellishment.  I added it to the right side of the photo and slid the cute little Boo heart sucker die cut behind it.


I knew I wanted more on the layout, so I decided to add a strip of the purple polka dot paper to the top and a strip of the orange, too.  They tied in well with the plaid paper in the layering behind my photo, and I decided I would add some of the purple to the bottom as well. 

Then it was on to embellishing!! I pulled out the die cut pack and started to play. There were so many cute pieces, I had to reign myself in or I would have used it all! But instead, I pulled out a few pumpkins, some little bats. and the word 'Boo.'

I knew what I wanted the title to be, and the Boo would be great to mix in. So I added the Boo to the upper left side of the layout with a little pink pumpkin and then added the rest of my title with thickers from my stash, so it says 'Boo @ the Zoo!' That's where we took the picture. It was a fun-filled night for adults at the zoo with lots of fun, scary zombies and some cute things made out of hay.

Well I went on and added the bats around the title and then moved to the bottom of my layout. I added two little pumpkins and that adorable tag that says, 'xoxo.' Finishing off my layout. I added some stitching and ruffled up the edges of the rest of the papers.

Thanks so much for coming by and seeing what I created today!
