One little layout....

I feel so out of it lately, but I was able to complete one layout with my Halloween counterfeit kit. I used some photos of my two youngest sons from this Halloween. Both of them dressed up as zombies, and I had them pose in front of the tombstones we had decorating the yard.

The sketch came from Pagemaps 2, and I really stuck closely to it, as I was not feeling that creative. At least I accomplished one layout!

I'm late to the party!

I wanted to make a counterfeit kit for Halloween, although October has come and gone. October's inspiration kit came from Little Red Scrapbook (September, 2010), and included a Halloween themed kit. I liked the kit, but wanted to make mine a little creepier, and less cutesy because my kids are getting older and are definitely into the spookiness of Halloween.

Inspiration kit:

My version:

I recently bought last year's Hocus Pocus line by Pink Paislee on clearance, and used that as a base for my kit. I added a few sheets of other Halloween paper I had laying around, one new sheet of Pink Paislee and a bunch of embellishments to top it off. Maybe I'll get a chance to do a few layouts from this Halloween with the kit.
