Hey everyone! A few days ago I was on the Hip Kit Club blog along with fellow team member Corrie for sketch Friday.

Today, I have a Halloween layout to share with you. I like to get my Halloween photos scrapped as soon as I can…If I don’t, I forget about them with the hustle and bustle of the holidays, and they never get scrapped. I think I still need to scrap 2013 & 2014…
Here’s my take on the sketch:
I wanted to use one of the giant Dear Lizzy white chipboard words, as I hadn’t used any yet, and I thought “magical” was very fitting for a Halloween layout. I dressed it up with some mixed media. I used the Shimmerz Old Yeller Inkling with a bit of the packaging technique and I also painted with a small paint brush.
While the chipboard was drying, I got to work on my layout. Can you believe I only used one pattern paper on this layout? I loved both sides of the Pinkfresh Studio Escape the Ordinary paper in transform. I used the b&w side as my frame. Whenever I matte a layout on a piece of pattern paper, I always cut out the inside, so I can still use the paper. Do you do that too? Since I cut out the middle, I had enough left over to use on my layout. I punched some circles out of the b&w side, and I used the yellow floral side as a layer behind my photos.
I used circles as embellishment spots on my layout. I looked for black and white elements within the kits to embellish the circles, which was plentiful in the Pinkfresh Studio Escape the Ordinary collection. I added some paint splatters, and my journaling, and called it done!
Even though I didn’t use any Halloween product on my layout, I think it turned out very “Halloweenie!”
I hope you like my layout! I encourage you to play along with our sketch!
Happy Sunday y’all!
