Too cute to Spook

I don't do many 2 pagers, but this sketch from Scrap N' Chat was perfect for photos from Katie's 7th birthday at our house. I always love scrapping Halloween colors so was glad when she chose a costume party. Made it easier to plan the party too.

I knew I wanted to add a couple flowers to this layout, but didn't like the size or style of the distressed flowers I had in my stash.

I chose two different stamps. One is small stars and twinkling lights. The other is to use as blossoms/leaf buds on a tree. I stamped my selected images on clear plastic, I use product packaging. I can stamp, check it our then wipe it off to reuse.

this is a photo of DH in July 1955.
cardstock - Stampin Up!
pp - Basic Gray, Dream Street and unknown
chipboard alpha - Scenic Route
brads - Stampin Up!
flowers - Prima
stamps - Stampin Up! and Studio G
ribbon - unknown
