My favorite Halloween line at CHA was probably Fancy Pants October 31st. LOVED it. Truth be told, though, I have a ton of Halloween product, so when I saw it at Archivers, I actually held back and didn't get it.
When I got a published layout back this week*, how delighted was I to also receive this very collection in the box. I kept it out to scrap my remaining Halloween photos from last year. Here's Boo 2010 (the story is amusing--if you click on the image, you should be able to read it.):
Since the box came with lots of embellishments, I used them much more profusely than I normally do--chipboard, rubons, glitter cuts, die cuts, plus some jewels, brads, and stitching from my own stash and supplies. One teeny regret: using all the magic and witches' hats. Guess who's going to be Harry Potter this year?
I raised several elements on dimensional stickers just to add more texture and depth.
The paper corner was smooshed, so to hide it, I folded it over and put a wee bit of blue behind it. The flourishes are a cool rubon, as is the bit of magic.
* The layout is published in the online and print magazine Scrapbook and Cards Today. It's around page 58 in the Reader Gallery. This was my first page in this magazine, so I was truly honored to have the page selected, and I'm thankful my son's teacher gave me permission to submit the layout!
