there’s no escaping

Halloween will be here before you know it.

And I have a confession. After putting up the This+That: All Hallows’ Eve kit, I felt compelled to put up the rest of the Halloween decor  . . . compelled I tell you! :)

And it is done.

So of course when I saw this cute little number from Miss Nichol,
I was tickled . . . well . . . orange (can’t be pink, ya know).

[ Shapes This & That: All Hallows Eve (“carpe noctem”, coffin, bats, moon, pumpkin, fence) / Subway Art: Halloween (“there is no escaping”) / This & That: Halloween (gravestone) / This & That: Autumn (leaves) / Picture That [Squared] (photo template)

You may remember that she started this mini album of yearly Halloweens last year.

 Pure eye candy . . . or Halloween candy, whichever you’d prefer. 
totally love it.

Here’s what Nichol has to say:

I’m slowing beginning to work my way through the [Halloween Costumes album] I started last year, featuring the costumes my kids have worn throughout the years. I knew when I saw Kerri’s latest This & That: All Hallows Eve kit that the coffin would be the perfect addition to the page featuring my oldest 2 kids in vampire costumes!

For my page, I ungrouped the Halloween Subway Art, keeping only the phrase, “There is no escaping” and positioned it in the Silhouette Software using the Grid feature so I could make sure it cut exactly where I wanted it to. I ran my 8×8 sheet of patterned paper through my machine giving me the negative part of the die cut image. I backed the phrase with scraps of patterned paper.

Next I layered on all my die cut pieces, creating a fun Halloween “scene” for the left side of the 2-page spread and used an 8×8″ photo template for the right side of the page, completely filling it with photos from the night.

I kept additional embellishments to a minimum as the die cuts were embellishment enough for this fun page!

And now, for the winner of the seat in Becky Higgins’ new class:

Love Becky!

Crossing my fingers!
