You Are Too Cute to be a Pirate

Two Halloween layouts in the span of a month!  If you know me you know that I don't like scrapping themes and that includes holidays.  So, I have challenged myself to create FIVE Christmas layouts, not including my December Daily, before the end of the year.  I feel like if I share my goals I am more likely to meet them...public accountability :)

I used The After Dark collection by Crate Paper along with some items in my stash to create this page.  I am very pleased with how it turned out.  It can be hard to scrap pictures with traditional Halloween colors, so by minimizing the orange and using a white cardstock as my base I was able to create a page using traditional Halloween colors with my photo that has pink in it.

I love the kitty embellishment and thought that he was a perfect addition for the tag!  He is from an old Martha Stewart collection that I have had in my stash for several years now.  I was very happy that I was able to get one used on a layout.  I stitched around the edges of the large paper mat and on the corner of the page as well.

This title was definitely a labor of love!  I wanted the words to nestle in among the descenders of the word pretty.  To make matters more difficult, the Making Memories glitter alphas are a combination of upper and lower case and I didn't have all of the uppercase that I wanted to use. In the end though, I love how it turned out.  My other exciting moment was using the pumpkin banner...y'all I can not get banners to work on my pages if my life depended on it so I was thrilled when I got this to work on a page!

I have a process video if you are interested in taking a closer peek.
