Halloween in March?

Yes Ma'am! It's no secret that I love Halloween...maybe more than the kiddos. Each year I say we are going to have a Halloween party but this year I swear we are! I just love seeing everyone dressed up, esp the kids. I am sure you could understand my excitement this year when Owen FINALLY let me paint his face!!!! Then, to my dismay, he wouldn't let me do it...he wanted to {sigh} himself. I cannot fight his urge for independence, I am not sure where he gets that from?

So here is a fun layout I created for {another} Challenge over at Scrap Attack Scrapbooking. They really got my mojo going the other weekend at their crop. This was for a paper folding challenge. Since I am not much of a paper folding flower kinda girl, I went with fold my Vintage Core'dinations cardstock and sanding it. As I was doing this, these little monsters were staring at me and i thought...wouldn't this be a fun place for them to sit?

Other supplies: Jillibean Soup papers, alphas, kraft and die cut shape; SRM Stickers;



Here is a close up of their little ledge....so compfy and cute. I mean scary looking....
Now sewing all this paper folding down wasn't enough. I used some Glue Arts Extreme Adhesive Squares, too.




Have a great week!!!!
