Scrapbook Layouts: done with 4 more

These are my latest Halloween 05 layouts. I tried another theme with this one. I call it my Boo pages. A two page Layout of all things that say BOO on them.~hee

I added some more OTC (oriental trading Company) chipboard letters. More Queen and Company bootiful collection: Fab flowers, sassy sequins, Bon bon brads, Sprinkles and Mini sprinkles, and a hookup.

I added American Crafts felt those! I even added buttons to them with Karen Foster floss.

I added sassy sequins to my Making Memories metal word sign. I did that again with the crop a dile tool. Can't say enough about that tool. LOVVVE it!

I also added a fun chipboard ghost:again from OTC. Love their chipboard accents. They have them for a really good price.

I added some borders and words to my photos to jazz them up. I made the photos I didn't like so much into Black and white. Trying to "hide" my wondering eye a bit. Oh how I hate my contacts lenses. I am afraid I couldn't hide it too good. Oh well! I also thought the b & w photos would be more fun with the bright colors of the orange and green.

I used some more Cosmo Cricket paper but this time I used the backside of the Tweedle Dee papers. It's the green torn paper and the stripe is Karen Foster Design harvest stripe.

I added a photo sleeve that says BOO to the photo with Aaron wearing his BOO shirt. Photo sleeve is My minds Eye.

Finally, I put the ribbon in each corner. Two sets of ribbon and embellished them. I made the three pixs on the second page grouped together-kinda to give it that "photo booth" feel.

Our Family Halloween photo shoot. We have a photo of Doug's parents with Aaron. Than we have one with our family together. I just liked this pix of Doug and Aaron together. I even cut Doug's head off a bit in the photo /but I just like it so much. Aaron looks so fun in it/and Doug. I added another photo sleeve to jazz it up.

I added accents to my tags(the tags are Colorbok by Kolette punch out pack). I had a Making Memories Halloween kit. So I used some rubons from it to decorate the tags. Added some Queen and Company embellies to them and ribbon.

I debated on using those metal tags by Making Memories....because of what they say on them. LOL.....LOL....LOL! Doug assured me he didn't take it that way but I was afraid everyone else would? I am talking about the sayings on them and Our family chipboard letters above. One could think I was trying to say Our creepy ghoulish spooky family . ~hee I was shooting for more of that reading creepy ghoulish spooky ghosts & goblins. I just thought I would make that clear.

I added the Happy Halloween word ribbon to give it a little border at the end. I did the felt flowers and buttons again. I liked it alot on the other LO so I did them on this LO too.

I wanted to do something different to my hook up this time so I hung the ghost charm on the end and added ribbon at the top.

The chipboard is Queen and Company Bootiful Fontastics and Love letters(acetate letters). The paper is Colorbok by Kolette and some scraps I had of Chatterbox papers/Tangerine Eyelets.

Some really easy layouts and now I am done with Halloween and moving onto Christmas 05.

So you don't have to click on the pixs: here is close up view of each page.


PS.....I just bought tons of stuff from QVC yesterday. That all day scrapbook fair was really really good. Hope you caught it. I will share all I got when I get it in the mail. That will be one Happy Mail Day.

PSS...If My hubby reads this or anyone else that cares~hee! I found a new WISH list items. I think I will wait and post a pix of it on my blog. Give my hubby a bit of a "visual" hint. I know I already spent too much on QVC for Valentine's day...but....if by chance "sweetie" you read this.......?.......I will have my wish list posted under "wish list" *Duh* as a title in my next post.

This new wish list item is going to SAVE me from utter Cussing in the middle of the night. Frustration, hand ache, soreness, arthritis early in life and so on.


The upside is I looked up the price and it isn't too much even. Well, I didn't think so.

I will leave you in suspense until my next post.

See if you scrappers can guess what I am talking about here. I will give you a small hint.

It will look great in my scrap room AND will QUICKLY save my hand all kinds of aches and pains.~hee
