Let's Go A Haunting!

I love Halloween, it's one of my favorite holidays. Fall comes in colors of red, orange, brown...then BAM, Halloween comes and throws in purple and black and green, making for one of the most awesome color pallets!
Tonight I listed my first Halloween album. I like the horizontal rectangle, it gives great little layouts just the right room. This paper line is called Haunted by Cosmo Cricket. Yeah, I LOVE me some Cosmo Cricket!! The paper pack comes with awesome stickers, so you can't help but spend the extra $$$ and get the chipboard shapes that the stickers fit perfectly over top of!
After all that careful tracing, cutting, gluing, and of course finally sanding every edge, I had one pretty neat album to fill :) I have to point out one funny thing... this dang little swirl is suppose to show the bats flight pattern right? I made it from one straight row of connected pearls and it was soooo hard to get it right! LOL!
I love how this page turned out, I cut that leafy-vine-flourish thing out by hand and inked the chipboard bat with metallic ink. This picture really doesn't do it justice now that I stare at it for awhile! LOL
I have been a little bored with the usual machine stitching lately so I scribble stitched some photo mat corners by hand with orange thread. I scissor distressed all the photo mats and a few accents too. I think it turned out alright, I already have some plans for an album to finish off the papers though! Check it on ebay!
