boo!

Can you believe it?? We are pretty much midway through October!

Right here.

Right now.

Basically only two weeks left in the month!
I’m kind of freaking out a little about that, I’m not gonna lie!

It’s kind of scary.

And you know what else that means?

Three weeks from today,
the next Silhouette class–Hello There–starts!

Yowza!

It’s coming fast!

But first, to get  you into that Halloween mood,
let’s check out a little bit of fabulousness from our darling Layle!



 [ Shapes | This+That: Halloween (bat and spiderweb) ]

I absolutely adore this!

I love the thought of taking pictures of your decorations. Not only for posterity, but to remember how the heck you arranged it the year before! (ha ha)


Here’s what Layle has to say:

I LOVE Halloween!  But it’s not for the same reason that most people love it.  Nope, not for the candy.  I love it for the decorations!  I decorate the entire main floor of our house; it usually takes me a full day to put all of the decorations out.

I don’t scrap events/occasions/holidays.  I can’t.  Every time I try, I freeze up.  But when I saw the ”This + That: Halloween [Just Shapes]” – it was so fun, I figured I needed to find a way!  So, rather than scrapping Halloween night or the kids in costumes, I focused on the decorations.

I’m a single photo scrapper, almost exclusively.  As I was putting this layout together, the spider web reminded me of the shelf in our hallway in the horizontal photo.  That got me thinking that I could add multiple photos above the spider web, almost like a shelf.  To make the spider web more dimensional, I added a few of the insides of the web after they were cut out with pop dots.

I am a NOVICE when it comes to Photoshop.  Literally.  Earlier today I figured out how to adjust the white balance in a photo in Photoshop.  The ‘eat drink be scary’ photo on this layout was the 2nd time I played with it.  I have no idea what in the world I did to make the right hand side of the photo orange, but when I printed it out, it reminded me of a piece of candy corn, so I went with it! :)

I love this! The idea that the web is a shelf is awesome and the pictures are wonderful! Thanks so much for sharing and inspiring!

I love you layout. It has inspired me to decorate a little more than I have. Thanks for the inspiration.
