Trick or Treat

This is a layout that I did for THE CRAFTY SCRAPPER Design Team....What a "treat" it was to work with the AUTHENTIQUE "Glowing" collection! The colors are bold  and true to Halloween tradition. I added a hint of green to the LO for a splash of gooey grunginess! The paper is easy to punch and run through my CUDDLE BUG, along with the TIM HOLTZ/SIZZIX Alterations "Twigs", "Paper Rosettes" and "Mini Paper Rosettes". The title and story tag are also by AUTHENTIQUE. The "BOO!" tag is part of the lovely "Halloween 2011" collection by JENNI BOWLIN. Other products used are Jenni Bowlin "Vintage Buttons" (orange), STAZ ON ink (Jet Black), RANGER/TIM HOLTZ Distress Ink (Peeled Paint), and last.... but NEVER LEAST is a sweet little green PRIMA "Avon Rose". 

Some paper altering  techniques used in this layout are tearing, punching, folding, inking, die cuting, hand stitching and machine stitching. 
The sweet little girl in the photo is my darling daughter, Elizabeth....when she was eight years old. 

Thanks, EVERYONE, for your kind remarks!
