Halloween Layout

I've been busy this morning at my local craft club making a Halloween layout.
We enjoy Halloween in our house & we decorate the garden with all spooky things.
This year I decided to dress up as well.
I'm really pleased how this layout turned out & it's another page for my Halloween scrapbook.

An Autumn Scrapbook page

For this 12x12 Lo I've used two large photo's of the  grand children having lots of fun in the autumn leaves at the park.
My back ground paper is called Maple Grove Hickory from We R Memory Keepers. 
I'd used a inverted corner punch on the photo corners & one layer of matting card to make it all more interesting rather then just having the normal straight corners.
The Most of the leaves used are  by reflections a company that supplies Michaels  along with the Acorn embellishment's  .  The large alphas came from Michaels as well.

Double & single page layouts

Its been so dark & miserable here today. Trying to get good photo of my Lo's has not been easy . This is the best I can managed today .
My double page Lo I started a few weeks ago & just needed to get some more black card to matt my photo's.
Here is the finished results.
 My next Lo is myself with Mulan in Epcot. 
I've cut the flowers out from a paper by October afternoon . & used some paper mania Alpha's

Scrapbook Layout

Its been quite a wet day today so rather then going out & getting wet I've got on with some crafting .
A scrapbooking Facebook group I belong too set a challenge to use pattern paper for the back ground of your layout.
I've used Fine & Dandy by My Minds Eye for my background .
The paper was double sided & wanted to use a little from either side so I cut off 4inches & flipped the paper over & fixed it together with a strip of extra paper.
I've used some spell bingers dies to cut my shapes & then added a Kaiser Craft rub on quote & two enamel dots

November Tag Swap

The theme for the November Tag swap over at  this month is Vintage/Retro.
I've gone with the vintage theme for my tags.
For my back ground of my tags I've used a stencil & Distress stains , Fired Brick, Walnut stain, & Crushed Olive.
My images I've used were free images from a craft magazine which I've put onto some card .
I've added some lace rim , twine , & seam binding.
I found some metal embellishments in my stash which I found I could use as well so it all worked out quite well for my tags.

November Postcard Swap

November postcard swap on has the theme set as Christmas for this month , because we don't put our postcard in the post till the end of month so by the time our swap partners receive them it will be just going into December.
So here is my offering for the swap.
I've covered my card with an oddment of Christmas scrapbook paper which already looked like a Christmas postcard .
I then stamped the Tim Holtz bird onto some plain card & coloured the image.
Using some other Christmas stamps which were , holly & berries, Santa hat & stars , I stamped them  onto white card & set about colouring them also .
After a bit of cutting out I glued the images onto the postcard & finished everything off with adding some a product called Snowtex onto the Santa hat which gives some texture to the hat while looking like snow , &  added a dear Santa  ticket I found in my Christmas stash & wrote I can explain.
