Happy Halloween, Scraps of Darkness October Kit, 2017 . . . and some news!!!

Hi everyone!  I  hope all of you creative people are having a scrappy month so far!

I would like to share a layout that I made using the October Scraps of Darkness kit!  It's full of wonderful paper and scrappy items that are perfect for your Halloween photos!  Here are just a few that I used:


Flowers and leaves:

Fancy Pants Spellbound:

Blue Fern Studios chipboard:

Black ostrich feathers:

Here is my completed page:

This kit is so versatile . . . instead of going scary with this layout, I used a cute photo (one of my favs!) 
of my daughter and her friend at the pumpkin patch taken back in 2006!  

Here are some close ups and different views:
