Just another day of playing with my Design Studio program and my Cricut. I like to design entire layouts with my DS program and then leave it for Katie and Sue at The Scrapbook Zone to see what they come up with. I'm not usually disappointed. So last Friday I took this sketch in with me.

Showed it to Kelly, our owner, and she jumped right in. She grabbed some awesome 2 sided by Reminisce paper titled"Stare Down". We used the multi colored side for our giant scalloped oval and then used the backside for our title. We knew the Mansion and tree would be black, so I started cutting those and she went in search of cardstock to use. Great choices! I was busy cutting away and when I turned around she was off Smooching the Mansion and tree. What a marvelous effect. This whole layout was about the details. Lots of inking and Smooching and pen work make this layout a "frightful" master piece.

I liked it so much I recreated it at home for my own use. Mines a little different, a little less bling but I like it all the same. Now when Halloween gets here I'm all set. I can just print my pictures that night and I'm done.

Here's a few more close up shots of my favorite page elements:

I hope you've been inspired to create a little Halloween Danger of your own. Go Scrap!
