Halloween is right around the corner and this week I worked on making Halloween Treat bags for 6 of my grandkids. I have 3 I have to mail to Texas and the other 3 I will get to give in person this coming weekend to the grandkids from St. Louis. I didn't get a lot of Halloween pictures last year of the kids dressed up, my one grand-daughter at last minute took off her costume before they went out, my grandson from TX took off running with his friends and didn't slow down for pictures and my grandkids in St. Louis, the oldest broke his leg a week before and was in a cast from hip to foot so they didn't dress up and go out. So just in case anything goes wrong this year and I don't get a lot of pictures to scrap I at least got to make this one. :) I can't skip a year in my Halloween album without adding something.
Plus for this layout I'm entering it in 4 challenges .......
1st - I used the Oct. 15th sketch at "Colorful Creations" and their mood board which I was inspired by the pumpkins and the colors of orange, yellow and a touch of green and red. And I have my Fall leaves/flower centerpiece behind the bags and there are fall leaves on the mood board.
2nd - The die-cut challenge at "Stuck on U Sketches" - Anything Autumn. To me Halloween is the height of Autumn. The trees are in full color and there is always a cool nip in the air so that signifies my Autumn. I have my title die-cut and my little costumed boy on the tag as my die-cut.
3rd - Challenge #81 at "Red Carpet Studios" Their challenges are always based on movies and for this one it is 'The Haunted Mansion' You had to create a project inspired by Halloween. Well this certainly fits that.
4th - In my online scrappy group one of our challenges this month was Pumpkins and you had to have pumpkins on your layout. And I have a page full of those in my background paper.
So check out all the challenges below and also see the sketch.
