Haunted House Layout

I needed some Halloween inspiration for this layout, so I searched online and found a fun tune from 1964 called "Haunted House" by Jumpin' Gene Simmons. I liked the lyrics about bells ringing and chains clanking, so I added them around my frame and then stamped the title on some banners to make it stand out from the rest of the words. I had lots of fun with the frame, adding a cobweb in the corner (hard to see but trust me, it's there!), the lyrics and puffy shapes around the edges, and finally a die-cut fence and the stamped and fussy-cut owl.
Recipe:
Hodgepodge Alphabet & Spellbound stamp set
Itty Bitty Backgrounds (SU)
Jeepers Creepers Level 2 papers and Complements (stickers, arrow)
Black, Sunset, Pansy & White Daisy cardstock
Black, Whisper & Clover Meadow ink
Black marker
White gel pen (Sakura)
Jeepers Creepers Assortment puffy stickers
Black shimmer trim
#Life cards - Enjoy
Cricut Artbooking cartridge: frame, cobweb, fence, haunted house
Pattern: Let's Get Sketchy September Week 1
Challenges Lasting Memories forward or use arrows (I went with a big, sparkly arrow!); The Studio Challenges use a frame; Rochelle Spears September This or That challenge - enamel shapes or puffy shapes (I chose to use puffy stars and eyes); Picture This! Wish Upon a Star challenge (my puffy stars arrived just in time for this layout)

Cheryl, great to see another layout of yours! Putting the lyrics around your frame from the "Haunted House" and linking it so we can hear it on youtube is such a great and fun idea! Love the google eyes,too! Halloween is my favorite time of year so I will be starting to scrap some pages too. Thank you for joining us again at "Picture This" and I look forward to seeing more from you!
