Holy Scrap!

A few months ago I discovered this blog with some really great scrapbook sketches. Earlier this week, she posted a new sketch and it was just the inspiration that I needed to FINALLY get my Halloween page finished! The background paper is by Fancy Pants.
For the title, I used some white "Thickers" and doodled a bit on them with a black pen. The orange panel that the title is on was actually a cream colored paper that I tore out of a notebook. To make it match my page, I used a brayer and covered the paper with SU Pumpin Pie ink. The pumpkins and bat are rub-ons by BoBunny.

I searched every bin, drawer and package in my workshop to find some candy shaped embellishments. I never found any, but then it occurred to me that I could make my own with a stamp set called "Tasty Sweet" that I got from SU last year.
I used Pumpkin Pie and More Mustard ink for the candies and then cut em' out and attached with dimensionals. And since Stickles make everything better, I covered the orange swirls in the background with diamond stickles. This page is super SPAR-KA-LAY in person.
Thanks for stopping by today! Have a great weekend.
