Happy Haunting Scrapbook Layout
Good Mooorning. I love Halloween layouts. I have to say, it’s so nice to look back and remember those fabulous costumes, that maybe you put a ton of work into creating. My girls have gone as many many things for Halloween. One year a costume was put on hold because of a broken knee. Alizabeth was in a brace and crutches just before Halloween started, and we ended up putting her in a wheelchair and wrapping her in bandages to accommodate for her injury. Annalise is always a ham, really getting into her role.
When I came upon these photos I just laughed and laughed. These girls are real hams! I love their tough girl ‘tudes.
I was thinking of what I could create as a layout that would be just right for this single pic. I love the big haunted house, but always want to put a bunch of photos on a page, and it just never could work with more. So that single photo was perfect for the background of this layout – a happy haunting scrapbook layout.
I used the Cricut Happy Hauntings Cartridge to cut out the House (layer1 and 2) at 6.6 inches, Moon at 2 inches, Bat at 0.62 and 0.38 inches, Vampire Bat at 1 inch, Gravestone 1 and 2 at 1.33 inches and one each at 1.7 inches, fence (flip and weld second) at 1.1 inches, Happy Hauntings (layer1 and 2) at 2.22 inches, Ghost at 1.18 inches
I layered the cuts onto a single sheet of patterned paper Die Cuts With AView, then added in the clouds, tree, ghosts, bats, moon, fence, graves.
I printed my journaling out into strips and added that and then added the two final gravestones.
For effect, I touched the ghosts faces up with black pen to stand out more.
That is my layout!
