Monster Mash - WSB Challenge

Hello again! Earlier in the week I promised several posts this week filled with crafty goodness and, by golly, I keep my promises! LOL! Here is my latest layout for the WSB DT challenge! The challenge the very creative Cindy gave to us was to use lyrics on our project and to use three photos. Now, you can see from my layout that I did not use three photos. Why, you might ask? Well, because I didn't read the instructions very well and goofed! I hope she forgives me!! hehehe!

I have to admit that I got the basic inspiration for this layout out of one of my scrap magazines. I then added my own twists to it and changed it up. The photos are a few years old and are of my hubby, son, niece and nephew at my in-laws. Halloween is my family's fav holiday and this particular year we had a blast! I just love these photos!

I used Bazzill and The Paper Studio cardstock & K&Co., Making Memories, DCWV and Autumn Leaves patterned paper. I used a Sakura pen to write Halloween on the purple paper to simulate a ribbon and the green ribbon is AC. I used Thickers to spell MASH & my Cricut Mini Monograms cart to spell MONSTER. I drew a spider web with black Stickles and the spiders are some leftover Halloween rings I cut the ring portion off of and used pop dots on them for dimension. I also used black StampCraft ink on the edges of my photos to help them stand out a little better. I love this technique!

If you get a chance, hop on over to the Whimsical Scraps & Bugs site to check out all the other fun projects the DT did. I am posting mine a day early because I probably won't be able to tomorrow. As well, WSB is participating in the Fall Challenge Blog Hop and you definitely don't want to miss out on that! Today is the last day to participate so make sure you start out at Scrapsketch! I promise to be back one more time this week with some more projects I am working on! Happy Scrapping!

Hey girl! Sorry I haven't been around lately I am STILL sick and really haven't felt like being online much. I just happen to hop on and see your post and had to tell you how GREAT this layout is!! Love your spiderweb and the spider rings (I use to have tons of them left over from years of trick or treat wished I would have saved them!) I don't have anything for the challenge and I've got to let Cindy know sniff, sniff I'm sooo ready to feeling like myself again.

How cuuuute! Love your layout and pics! What a clever idea to use Stickles for the spider web! I've been wanting a spider web, but did not have a "web" stamp... and all along I could of just used my Stickles! May have to case this idea! :)
