Happy Halloween Layout - Citrus Twist

Happy Halloween everyone! Hope you are having a great night, filled with trick and treating fun! And when you are done taking lots of photos of you and your friends and family in your Halloween costumes, go ahead and pull out your scrapbook supplies so that you can properly document this magical holiday!!! I'd like to share with you a fun layout I did, using the October Citrus Twist collection, which showcases a pic of me and my hubby in our costumes from last Halloween! 

I made this layout using the cute black and white polka dot patterned paper from the Maggie Holmes Gather collection for Crate Paper, for the background. I think it's perfect for a shallow web layout. To make the photo pop, I layered some other patterned papers from the kit, like the brown leather and wood Gather patterned papers. I also used the aqua washi tape from the Reset Girl collection for Simple Stories and laid several strips of it on some paper to make my own kind of pattern to use behind my pic. 

For my title, I used the chipboard word "happy" from the Gather chipboard stickers and then underneath it I spelled out the word "Halloween" with the alpha wood and white and wood and grey chipboard alpha stickers from Fancy Pants that come in the kit. 

To embellish my layout I used a combination of adorable goodies from the main kit and embellishment add on kit. I used several of the fall themed cut apart pieces that are exclusive to Citrus Twist, like the little labels that say things like " life" and "pumpkins" and the cute little labels too like the one with the cute image of the pumpkin on it. I scattered several of those on either side of my pic, along with chipboard stickers from Gather, little button/brads from Simple Stories, a sweet flair button that is exclusive to the kit, cork stars and puffy stickers that are exclusive embellies as well. 

To finish off my Spooktacular layout, I used a black marker and did some doodling! I underlined my title, I circled the number 31 (which I had added using the Gather chipboard stickers) and I drew some boo-tiful spider webs! I love the way the spider webs really drive home the Halloween theme! I drew a little spider hanging from one of the webs too just as an extra eek-tastic addition! 

I hope you like my layout and that I have inspired you to create a similar kind of layout this year with pics of you and your loved ones in your Halloween costumes, using the adorable goodies from the October Citrus Twist kit! Happy Halloween!!! :-)
