Halloween Party Layout

I am not a huge Halloween fan, but I have to admit it was fun scrapping a color combo I seldom use - purple, black and orange! I started with a old sketch I designed for the Heart 2 Heart blog and added some challenge elements from various blogs. In retrospect, the only thing I don't like about this layout is the purple letters that spell party; I wish I had used a brighter color so they showed up better. But as I always say, "It's done. Time to move on!"

Looks great. You can always outline the word party with a journaling prn to make it pop. Thanks for sharing with us at Heart 2 Heart.

I like this a lot! The chevron print picks up the same detail from the spider web nicely. Well designed! Thanks for showing us how at H2H!
