Boo - Stuck?! Sketches

Hi! I'm sharing my take on the new sketch from Stuck?! Sketches. This is one of my favorite Halloween photos of my daughter Claire. I usually scrap it every year! I wanted to use some of my new Halloween goodies, and because I haven't had a chance to snap photos of my daughters in the costumes they will wear this year, I used this favorite photo of my oldest taken several years ago.

I used Lindy's Stamp Gang Jack O'Lantern Orange Embossing Powder with a stamp to add shimmery circles to the patterned paper. I also splattered Lindy's Stamp Gang Mist (Wake Me Up Before You Go Gold, Kissin' Kenickie Coral, Golden Doubloons and Brushed Nickel) in a random fashion over the patterned paper. I then added some black bats with Distress Ink and a stencil. I've had this Want2Scrap Skull Chipboard Album for some time and thought it would be fun to use a couple of the pieces for a creepy photo mat. I painted, inked and stamped the first two pages of the album, separated the layers of chipboard with dimensional adhesive, and attached it to the page.

I embellished the edges of my photo with stickers and chipboard letters.

I decorated the side of the layout with tickets, masking tape and a glitter spider.

Here's Laura's original sketch. I rotated the design one click to the right for my page.

We'd love to see your take on this sketch! For more inspiration, visit the Stuck?! Sketches Blog to see what the rest of the designers have created.

We have two fabulous sponsors for this sketch, Lindy's Stamp Gang and Scrapmatts!
