Hallowe'en treats!

Living out in the sticks, we don't get many trick or treaters at our door. But that doesn't stop us enjoying some of the Hallowe'en traditions, and every year the children have a pumpkin each to carve. The pictures I've used in this layout are last years pumpkins - but I was so pleased with the photos. I'm drawn to orange as a colour anyway (hence the shop logo!!) and love it when it's teamed with black. When the Toil & Trouble papers from Girls Paperie arrived in the shop, I knew they'd be perfect for this layout!

I've used a Martha Stewart PATP set, Crackle on Vanilla cardstock, which is then mounted on black - and I'm really pleased with the effect! The felt pumpkins are by Queen & Co, and the addition of a few buttons, string & stitching were all that I felt the layout additionally needed.

This is the first time I've scrapped Hallowe'en photos, and for anyone who feels they'd like to do the same, check out our Hallowe'en goodies here.
