Halloween at TTPHC

Hello and welcome. Hope you are enjoying your Monday :)

Today over at Through the Purple Haze Challenges, it is team B's turn to wow you. We are sponsored this week by Simply Betty.

The theme is Halloween. The winner will get three of the digi's that we the DT got to use. Go on and give it a go!! ;-)

This week I did a layout, for a change! This is 8x8" sheet of black board.

I painted the image (Evil Queen Rio) in with watercolour paints and stuck her onto a 6x6 paper. The backing paper has 'Memories' printed out on it, and I thought it was pretty apt, as the photo brings back great memories!

 I got a strip of purple paper and stenciled some dots onto the paper. I then got some purple net and gathered it with some ribbon and stuck some brads through it, to ensure it wouldn't budge.

I used my Garden Trelis frame die to create this frame for my photo. This is a photo of my eldest girl Sarah when she was 3, loads of memories flood back when I see the photo of the cheeky grin at me! Not to mention how obvious it is to see how alike she and her younger sister are! (I can never see the sister resemblances!!!) I then sprayed it with some spray paint. With the square gone from the frame, I used the card to cut out the letters 'Trick".

I cut out the letters in two different fonts to read 'trick' and 'treat'. I combined all letters and embellishments to give a Halloween feel to the layout. 
Why not take part in the challenge?

Thanks for stopping by, hope you have a great day
