Lil Vamp - Scrapsketch Challenge

Time for the latest Scrapsketch DT post! I am such a fan of Stephanie's sketches and am just loving being on her DT too! She is such a sweetie and so talented too! This is Scrapsketch # 166 and I decided to do a Halloween layout of our son. Everyone knows by now how much I love Halloween so I am sure the majority of my posts this month will be related in some way! These particular photos of TJ are some of my absolute favs. They were taken when he was 23 months and I just think he is the most adorable little vampire! He really hammed it up for the cameras too! I haven't scrapped a lot of older photos because I am always playing catch up with current ones! So, this month I may be getting all my past Halloween layouts done! Yay!

The round patterned paper I used for this layout is from Target, while the rest of the papers are by The Paper Studio. I used my scallop punch from SU on the edges as well as inking the edges of everything, even the photos! I love the added dimension this gives to a picture! The brackets are glitter chipboard by Junkitz that I had left over from last year, the 'vamp' is fabric Thickers, and the 'lil' is EK Success stickers. The little bat is a die cut from an old kit, as is the orange circle, but I am not sure who made them.

I hope you like my layout and that you take the time to visit Scrapsketch! There are some awesome Halloween sketches there as well as some very cool layouts that the other DT members created! Definitely a place full of inspiration and creativity! I will also try to post again later today if I get a chance as I have a cute pic and story to share from this past weekend, which was great! Happy Scrapping!
