Hocus Pocus

I had a lot of fun putting this layout together. The pictures are from last year when my grandchildren were here. This year I will not have any pictures because they moved to Mississippi.

The products we were given were a Prima Iron on, Canvas, Tim Holtz Distress Stickles, a Prima Pebble, and Prima Stem. I used mostly everything, but sometimes not the way it was given to me. I did not iron on the tree, I pulled the truck off and used it as a branch, I glued it down on a black piece of cardstock and cut around it.
The Prima Pebble had a butterfly which was really hard for me not to use, since I LOVE BUTTERFLIES, but it just did not go with the layout. So I stamped some little bats on a piece of canvas with StazOn and glued it to the pebble. I also used the canvas for the moon behind my flying witch and I stamped some candy corns on the canvas, painted them, stickled them, and glued them to the bottom.

A lot of things are cut with my Cricut. (spider web, spider, fence, flying witch, & pumpkins)On the spider web, spider, and flying witch, I used the TH Distress Stickles. I used glitter paper for my pumpkins. All painting was done with my Ink pots, including the canvas ribbon on the book.
The card stock for the back is Bazzil, the fence was cut out of Core Paper, it was Black with a grey backing, I sanded it so the grey would show. Along the side edges I used Robin's Nest-Halloween Swirl, under that Creative Imaginations-Trickery Black (cut in half), the cover on the 7 Gypsies book is Reminisce- Candy Dots, the orange in the middle is Dots w/Zig Zag by Little Yellow Bicycle, the stripe paper behind the pictures is Haunted Skinny Stripes by KI, and the words on the pictures and the book were cut off a sheet by Little Yellow Bicycle called Halloween words.I added a few Halloween buttons and shredded a cotton ball to put on the fence.
Have a great Halloween!!
