Monster Mash Mondays Blog Hop! Week 4!

Happy Labour Day!  And Happy Monster Mash Monday!
I decided to change things up a bit and work on my Halloween Layouts for this year.
Thanks again to Shirley for hosting this fun fun Blog Hop!
Check out Shirleys blog here

So here is the page I came up with this week!
I started out with a 12x12 piece of Basic Gray CS.  I then used the Halloween Hangups wheel with Basic Black ink to create the boarder at the top of the page.  Then I cut up Rhinestone Mesh to create the sparkly webs.  Next I tore a piece of the bat in a web paper from the Frightful Sights DSP and antiqued it with Early Espresso and a sponge.   
Next I used Frightful Sights and the Perfect Pennants for the big shot to create the two embellishments.  I wove the Basic Black 1/8inch taffeta ribbon through the holes.  Then I I used the spider and stamped it on Lucky Limeaide Card Stock and popped it up in the center after using the Stamping up tools to rough up the edges of the CS.  The other embellishment was created with Tangerine Tango and I used the EeK!  Stamp from Spooky Bingo Bits. 
Next I stamped some cute ghosts from Bingo Bits onto the background with Whisper White Craft Ink.  I used Tangerine Tango and Basic Black to create the mat.  I crumpled up the Tangerine Tango and used the direct to paper technique on the Tangerine Tango to make it look aged.  I tore some edges off and used the stampin up tool to rough up the edges.  Then I used Sans Serif and Frightful Sights DSP to create the saying - I then crumpled and roughed the edges and applied to paper --  My Son loves the layout now he just has to find a costume!!  Love Love love Halloween!

Hope you enjoy and please feel free to join in you can find all the info on Shirleys blog!
