Halloween Night 2012

Every year, not long terribly before Halloween I get into the Halloween mood by scrapping last year's Halloween pictures.  Why should 2013 be any different?  This is a Halloween layout featuring pictures of the cutest boys ever from last Halloween's adventures.  My youngest son decided he was going to be a hot dog.  Yep.  And my oldest son was knee deep in a Mario Bros. phase at the time.  Thankfully we've moved on but I shudder to think what this year is going to look like.  That said, I was a bit low on mojo but wanting to scrapbook anyway so I  went searching my Pinterest boards for inspiration, and ultimately decided on a scraplift because I loved the original page so much.  I adore the wonderful Laura Vegas and this is a scraplift of a page of hers that you can find here.  Thank you Laura for that much needed inspiration!

Like many of you, or maybe not so many of you, I have a big bucket storage container full of Halloween crafty goodness.  I decided last year that I would NOT allow myself to purchase any new Halloween paper or embellishments because it was  getting slightly out of control.  With that said, I pulled out the bucket storage container and found some things that I think work quite well together.  This is a mixture  paper from  My Mind's Eye Mischevious, along with Stampin' Up Halloween paper, and a bit of DCWV cardstock.  A bit of washi, some brads and twine, and sparklies and I was set!

Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Beautiful layout. Love the way you added the keys and bat. great pattern paper choice and layout.

  3. This has to be one of my favorite Halloween layouts! I love the giant spider web. Now I detest real spiders, but I have to say I think I like the blingy kind!

  4. What a great layout! Love the paper choices... Halloween without being "Halloween-ey" if you know what I mean!

  5. I love the use of the spider web in the background and your choice of patterns. It's so hard to resist purchasing more Halloween paper every year eventhough I too have a big collection from years past :(.

  6. I love the design of this!! It looks amazing!! I troll Pinterest when I'm low on mojo, too!! And so cute your son wanted to be a hot dog!! :)
