trick or treat

Hey everyone!  I have a new layout to share with you today.  This layout uses the adorable new Spooky & Kooky Halloween line by Bazzill Basics.  Yep, that's right, Bazzill Basics makes patterned paper now too!  Pretty cool huh?


These are photos of my two boys last year on Halloween.  I love that this collection has some yellow in it along with the more traditional Halloween colors of orange, black, purple and green.  It really helped to tie in the colors of Darian's yellow Spongebob costume.  I grounded my design on black cardstock that I splattered with some White Calico Mister Huey spray mist by Studio Calico.  I then created a simple grid design which allowed me to use several different patterned papers from this line without overwhelming my photos.


The Spooky & Kooky line also includes coordinating stickers and buttons.  I popped up one of the stickers with dimensional adhesive and clustered it with a button and brad to add a bit of detail to my journaling strip. 


The generous folks at Bazzill Basics sent me a whole set of Spooky & Kooky goodies to give away to one of my blog readers.  To be entered to win simply leave a comment on this blog post telling me what your child(ren) plan to dress up as on Halloween by Monday, October 17th at midnight EST.  I'll announce the winner on Tuesday!  Good luck and thanks for stopping by!  :)

Love this line! Thanks for the chance to win!
Since my daughter is grown, I'll tell you the favorite outfit I had when she was little. I made her a Tinkerbell costume, and made myself a Peter Pan costume! That was a lot of fun. She was in preschool at the time.

Cute layout. Love the paper. My boys are getting older so a costume is unlikely... although I know they still want the candy. Isn't there a rule that you must dress up to go door to door?? :)

Carrie said...

Great layout! Thanks for the opportunity! My 3 1/2 year old son is going to be a Police Man. We already have the costume!

Laura said...

tampatha said...

love the layout! This is the first year that my son is going trick or treating and he is going to be a lion! We aren't sure how the lion head part is going to work as he has this thing about his head, so he may just end up being a furry Riley! :)

Well, my children are all grown up, but I do have one daughter whose husband's office usually dress up. Last year my daughter dressed up as the Cat in the Hat. She made t-shirts with a number on the front representing the Thing in the Cat in the Hat for each of the staff members, and each staff member wore a wig. She and the staff had their picture put into a locale paper. No telling what she will come up with this year.

Howdy from Texas! This is my first time to visit your blog (love the name of it!). I'll be sure to come back to see more of your scrapbook ideas because I signed up to do a PTA scrapbook but have never done one before and need help (am more of a cardmaker). Re: costumes, my son is thinking zombie, but he's notorious for changing his mind :)

So adorable, love it! I don't have kids, but I'll tell you what my husband and I plan on dressing up as this year. We bought a suit coat and tie that matches a dress from a thrift store. The key is they are this ugly teal. So we're gonna wear it like it went out of style this Halloween.
