Have a Wicked Halloween...

Happy Labor Day Weekend!  I'm going to spend as much time this nice, long weekend getting caught up on my scrapbooking swaps.  Earlier this summer I signed up for three 8x8 double page layouts over on Stampin' Addicts.  You may have seen my Christmas layout, which was featured as one of the projects I shared in last week's Holiday Mini Blog Hop.  I finished making the other 5 of those that I needed for the swap.  I've been working on the design of the Halloween swap for a few weekends, and this weekend I finally finished it.  I need another pack of Wicked Specialty DSP, which will be here on Wednesday, but I can get 4 of them done this weekend and have everything else ready to go once that flocked Razzleberry bat paper gets here.  You can't see it in the images, but I took the Daffodil Delight moons and sprayed them with Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz to give them a little sparkle.  I wanted to add an element between the two picture squares on the right panel, so I borrowed the idea I used on the center of the accordion medallion and made another, but this time using Basic Gray ink full strength on the spider web, and then I added a new black glitter brad in the center.  It's kinda fun - is it a web, or is it a bloodshot (less the blood) eyeball?  I love the new bat punch, so there's plenty of them on my layout. 


I wanted a fun Halloween layout, and I'm pretty happy with it.  Hope you like it, too!  If you have Monday off, enjoy your day.  I know I plan to head over to Panera Bread this weekend before their fabulous Strawberry Poppyseed Chicken Salad goes away until next summer (I'm still upset that last year they didn't bring back their Orchard Harvest Salad as a replacement for the strawberry one).  Thanks for stopping by!

Love the "eyeball"! I have been trying to figure out how I could stamp eyeballs, but I don't have this set. I may have to get it now!
