Trick or Treat

Trick or Treat Layout -

Don't you just love the smells of fall? The pumpkin pie or pumpkin chocolate chip bread cooking in the oven. The warm apple cider with a cinnamon stick or the hot chocolate with whipped cream, and yummy cinnamon donut from Kellys Apple Farm.

It's the season I love so much. You can still go outside without freezing your butt off and everytime you go out the door, you are surrounded my all the marvelous colors that fall has to offer. The air is brisk and wonderful.

I don't know about you but I hate being hot. I hate sticking to things and sweating. Ick! I am definitely a cold weather baby. I don't wear jackets ever pretty much and I love to cuddle up on the couch with a blanket and read my favorite book or watch a good movie. (Both high calorie burning activities.)

On to the page description, that is what you can here for right? Not my witty banter or my wonderful writing skills.

I made this page using the Authenique papers from the Enchanted collection. I simply love their papers. I will not go on about them again, but just know I love them. Hehe.

I didn't have a picture of a moon or something that was moon like and 7 inches around so I went online and found an image that was usable and printed it out. I then added detail to it by inking the edges all around with black ink.

I used my Wishblade to cut the tree. I needed a tree that was fairly big and my Slice will not cut something that huge. I rarely use my Wishblade for paper anymore, normally it's my son using it for making his own vinyl for his truck. The Wishblade is great for that.

I added two bats from a pack of that sticky ribbon by Recollections (I just cut two bats off), a few K&Company printed cardstock embellies, and a Prima black rose. The large Roman numeral clock is stamped onto cream paper.

Very simple page and it went together fairly fast and easy. That's the way I like scrapbooking, getting a very elegant page without it taking hours to complete.

Thank you for visiting my blog today. I hope you have a great weekend. We will be heading out to the pumpkin patch to get our pumpkins and maybe grab a hayride.

P.S. - Tell me do you notice something about this page and the last I posted? Comment below.
