COSTUME THRILLS - Simple Stories

Hi there Simple Stories friends!
Nathalie with you today bringing you a new layout  boo-ti-ful layout.   When the new Happy Hunting collection arrived at my doorstep, all i could think about was documenting a few of our past Halloween memories with its beautiful color palette and designs.  

It all started with creating the background for this layout.  I chose to add some mixed media to a letter size white cardstock page so that it complemented the warm tones in the collection.  While the background dried, i used a JustNick cut file  to cut two spider webs from the Jeepers Creepers paper.

The Hocus Pocus paper is probably one of my favorite papers in the Happy Haunting collection, so  used it as the mat for this layout.  I glued the cardstock and spiderweb cut outs towards the top part of the paper.  

Once the picture was set in place ( i used papers from the collection to back and add layers behind the picture), i used some of the ephemera pieces to create the title for this layout,  just loved the little spiders that the collection features.

To use all the space below the picture, i chose to add a large cluster of bits and bit and pieces, stickers, and a few stamped sentiments (using the coordinating stamp set).   I love florals, so having them to embellish the page was amazing.  The lines of journal were also added at the bottom of the cluster, followed by splatters of white, black and gold ink.

I love how this page turned out.   All those beautiful embellishments just complemented the story of my daughter's Halloween costume search.   You have to check the Happy Hunting collection from Simple Stories, i am sure you will love it, too!
