My October My Scraps & More Halloween projects..

Yeah, I'm a slacker....had these pages done weeks ago and I'm just posting them.  And they are photos of Halloween from 2 years ago!  I haven't even begun to think about this years photos yet!  :)

October's kit from My Scraps & More featured My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Halloween collection.

This is Charlotte at the pumpkin patch 2 years ago.  I can't believe how much she has grown!  The story is, we went to the patch on a Monday because Keith wasn't working...but we didn't realize the place was closed until we had been walking around a while!  We just thought we beat the crowds!  :)  There were some workers there who said we could stay and take pictures, so that's what we did!

I used some gesso and a old gift card to do the painting on the background.  Then I stamped with a doily stamp from Glitz.  One of the pieces of paper I misted a bit with an olive green mist just to had the hint of another color to the palette.

These papers have a LOT of glitter, and it gets everywhere!  But I didn't want to use too much, so I cut out some of the glitter bits from the papers, added some brads,  and scattered them here and there.  (Oh, and I realized after these photos that my "u" was missing!  But I found it on the back of the other layout!)

I LOVE this chevron print I used for the background on this next page!  Other patterns just seem to bounce right off of it!  These are photos from Charlotte's first real trick or treating!  She was so cute and loved her costume.  She really couldn't eat most of the candy, but she had fun getting it!

This page is pretty simple:  I cut lots of banner shapes from the text print paper, inked them, then added them with a few embellies to the left of the page.  I needed to ground the photos, so I added a large circle on the right and a few more banner pieces, too.

And lastly, I whipped up this cute little card!  I actually painted the pumpkin (which was on one of the patterned papers) with my mists, some water, and a paint brush.  Then I pop dotted it off the page.

So glad I finally got to share these!!!  Thanks for stopping by!

Terrific pages, Audrey. I love that doily stamp and how you used it in the background.

First of all, my daughter had that exact bee costume on her first Halloween! Next, I love these pages! Finally, I thought I'd let you know that I posted photos on my blog of a layout that I did using the kit you designed! :-)
