 I love Halloween. I love the colours, costumes and the fun decorations. So I created this layout with some inspiration from a program called "creative insider" from Close to My Heart. This paper pack does not have a Workshop on the Go Kit and this kit is available for purchase from me. 
I did not use any stamps as I wanted to be able to show our crafters that want the look of stamping without actually using stamps that this is possible. I popped some of the Stickease complements to put a little focus here. I used: Scaredy Cat paper,new Twill striped ribbon,Scaredy Cat Complements and Scaredy Cat Assortment.
I love the Thistle(purple) colour and can't wait till Halloween is here so that I can put my grand daughter's pictures on the layout.




 My next project is one that I created for my Calendar club for the month of October. I used Scaredy cat paper, and the black Damask patterned paper is a retired Close to My Heart paper that I thought worked so well with this paper. That's what I love about our patterned papers, No matter what, the old stash can be used with the new! I used Cricut Artbooking cartridge to Cut out the fence and black moon. On the actual calendar page below I used number of retired Close to My Heart stamps as I can't part with them and did I tell you how much i love Halloween?
