Trick or Treat Layout

I'm pretty sure the actual pages are much straighter! Somehow when I scan them in and upload the pictures, the elements seem to get more crooked! This is my one and only page of Halloween--not a very celebrated day in our house. It's fun to dress up and it's fun to get candy, but we don't really go out to other people's houses. Makenna was a happy little clown, and Hannah was a sad little pony. Didn't they play their parts well?? Ha, Ha!

I played up the circle theme found in Makenna's clown outfit by repeating them in the Designer paper and in the title circles, as well as the ribbon. I did something new with the journaling: i typed in in Photo Shop Elements and added a beach photo to the background. I played with the opacity of the photo so it wouldn't take away from the picture. I wanted to include this October Lake Michigan scene to remind us that we were living at the beach house at the time. I also got the Happy Halloween words from a Digital scrapbooking site.
