Happy Halloween!

Hi everyone!  Today is the first day of the new Challenge YOUrself challenge!

This month's challenge asks that we use buttons, bling, and butterflies on our layouts, along with a photo of YOU.

I decided to do something a little different and make a Halloween themed page!  I had a photo of me with my fellow adoptive moms taken at my friend's Halloween party this party on October 28th.  Here are some photos from the event:

My friend's new puppy Maddie fast asleep during the party:

Here's Katie with their older dog, Jazzy:
 And a scary ghost:

And witch:

My favorite photo is of our kids looking so grown up:

And here's the photo that I decided to scrap - I just love these women:

I converted it to black and white:

But decided to scrap the color photo.  What do you think?

I LOVED using the gold buttons, the orange, silver, and black bing, and the butterflies on my page.

The orange butterflies were made using the Art-C butterfly cutting/samping/and embossing set.  I also fussy cut the black and grey butterflies from the Pink Paisley Spellcast collection paper.  I used Simple Stories Spellbound collection too!

Here is a close up:

And different views:

This month's random prize is a 12 x 12 Echo Park scrapbook kit:

I hope you get a chance to check out the challenge and see what all of the design team members came up with, too!

And thanks so much for stopping by my blog today.  I cannot believe that November is here already and we will be heading into the holiday season very soon.

Hugs to one and all!
