Breathless about my favorite things.

Here is a layout I created using some of my new favorite things.  A big thank you to Practical Scrappers for the idea.   First was Marah Johnson's Breathless Gate Die Cut.   I really like this die cut.  When I bought it, my mom  as wondering how I was going to use it because it is so big.  It did not take me long to figure out I wanted it in the background on my page.  I layered it with three colors of paper: orange, purple and green.  I outlined the key hole on the gate with a green glitter jelly roll pen (Sakura).  If I could do it again I would use the white with glitter over it. 

The SPOOKY letters are glitter punch outs.  Which I inked using the Color Box CHALK in dark brown and the StazOn in jet black. I think StazOn smells like licorice. Yum.  I created mats for my photos (to come soon) with purple rice paper and the leftover green from the background.  The green I tore and  inked with the brown and black.  I stamped the "Danger do not Enter" on a leftover mat that I had been using to protect my desk while I inked some things with the  Distress Ink in peeled paint on another project.  I took the Halloween ribbon from Craftology Studio and cut the ghosts and pumpkins from it and matted them on white paper also inked with peeled paint.  Some of these I mounted with pop dots for dimension.  The cat and bats are from Jolee's boutique.

I really like the way the page turned out.  I hope you enjoy.
