All Hallow's Eve

Hello and Happy Monday!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. My husband had to work Saturday because of the holiday on Monday, so we didn't do much this weekend but watch football. 
I love football season. I get to settle down with my crocheting and eat yummy comfort food.
Saturday I made wings and mozzarella sticks, Sunday we had homemade chili; delicious comfort food for the fall weather.

I made this page using some new embellies I got, new paper and some old scrap I had. 
The background paper and embellies are from Echo Park Chillingsworth Manor collection.
I absolutely love this layout.
My daughter is going to be Mad Alice from the Alice PS3 game. If you don't know the game, and have a PS3, you should get it. It's a great game! And I can't wait to put her picture on here. I love Halloween so much.
Anyway, getting side tracked, the orange polka dot paper and the black damask print papers are from the Authentique paper stack. I used the Zutter distressing machine to distress the edges of the papers.
The black bling embellishment is from Recollections. They have really nice, fairly priced embellishments. You can find them at Michael's.
The flowers are Prima. The little green and purple flowers, I layered and added a black jewel to the middle of.
The tag and two bottles are from K&Company. The two bottles are stickers, but since I didn't want them sticking to the picture, I left the backing on both of them and just added tape runner to the bottom of each, where you can't see it.
For the black clothespin, I didn't have a small black one, so I took black acrylic paint and painted a plain one.

I think that layout came out splendidly. 
I hope you enjoy my reveal.

Have a wonderful day!

Reveal day is Monday.

New REVEAL will be on Monday.

I made a page that I really love, it honor of Halloween coming up. I will reveal the full layout on Monday, it has some of the coolest embellies on it. They are from the Echo Park collection Chillingsworth Manor. As displayed below.
Even though I have more Christmas paper then anything else, I love Halloween. I just wish my kids were little enough to still really enjoy it. Yeah they go trick or treating still, because I believe they can make their own decision when to stop but it's not the same as it was when they were little. I miss those days so much. But we still try to put on a cool show for the neighborhood and we all get dressed up to hand out candy. Only now instead of us taking the kids trick or treating, they go alone with friends.

Have a wonderful weekend.
Come back Monday to see the reveal!
