Happy Halloween...a little early! I love this Holiday...not the scary, spooky side, but the cute, fun side! Somehow though I never managed to get my decorations out this year...bad Mommie! Things got away from me and now it just seems not worth the effort. Oh well, I still love everyone else's decorations!
This was the page I did at that weekend scrapbooking event. This was last year's Halloween where Eli dressed up at a Samurai. Hard to see in the pictures, but the hat even had a long braid coming out the back. So cute! My husband and I bought it in Chinatown in July thinking we got a large size. But by the time Halloween got closer, I had to have my Mom fix the hat and jacket so they would fit! Worked out and he looked adorable if I do say so myself.
Since Eli's costume had that cool red dragon embroidered on it, I knew I had to bring the Red color into my layout. So I went with a little different color layout for Halloween. I made the main image of Eli my focal point and layered that image...the More Mustard layer was distressed using some scissors. I used strips of the House image from Bitty Boos Too colored using blender pen and Real Red ink & More Mustard Marker to go under the focal image and tie the other pictures into it.
I really like how it turned out and I love the fact that the alternate colors turned out so nicely.
