Are you scared?

Does the thought of using sports themed papers for a Halloween layout scare you?  Do you shake in your boots at the idea of making "something" work?  Well fear no more, my friends!  I created this adorable Halloween layout using three of our papers and you can too!! I started with some fun photos I took last Halloween in our front graveyard-errr..yard...under our big tree...these children are my youngest daughter and her best friend all ready to go trick or treating.  My daughter was a little freaked out about her friend's Werewolf costume, I just love how the photos turned out with the Hipstamatic app.

The chevron background of my layout is the "B" side of the new Sports and Activities Volleyball paper and I used the School is Cool Second Grade paper for the orange stars.  My bats are from the School is Cool Freshman paper (a black on black polka dot)...I added my own chipboard tree (misted with the new Heidi Swapp color mists) and my little quote card that says "clothes make a statement- costumes tell a story".  I 
stamped the Oct 31 on cardstock and created a little accent with a circle of the Second Grade Paper and some more bats...and there you have it!  A great Halloween page with sports themed papers- who would have thought it!!
