Make It Yours Monday~Halloween

Happy Monday and welcome to another Make It Yours Monday here on Spiegelmom Scraps! This month we are featuring sketches, and for this sketch, I have a fun Halloween layout to share with you today. But it’s not of my kids or myself. It was our puppy, Charger’s, first Halloween! And, for a puppy layout, what better sequin mix to use the new Puppy Dog Tails

I started this layout with a subtle pattern paper and backed it on a piece of navy cardstock. Each of my 3 photos, which are 3×4, are also matted on the same navy cardstock as the pattern paper, except the one of Charger. I added a piece of torn vellum behind that one to give it a little bit of difference. 

To create the circles, I used my scan n cut, and sized them at 4.5″. Using my T-square ruler, I adhered them to my page and then added the photos on top.  A journaling card, cut the same size as the photos, was placed in the 4th circle after I matted it with navy also.

After the main parts of the layout were down, I brought in the sequins and other embellishments! The Puppy Dog Tales mix was a big part, color wise, for this page. I added them in clusters all around the page and to each of the circles. Some cork starts and chevrons added texture and movement as well. The title went to the bottom of the page, using a large, orange glitter font for the Halloween, and some tiny tile stickers to spell out Chargers First. 

A doodle boarder, including some sketchy stars finished this page and I LOVE how this turned out!! I cant believe how quick and easy it came together and it any page following this sketch will look great! Thanks so much for joining me and give this sketch a go!! When you do, be sure to stop the the facebook group, 15 minutes to scrap with Spiegelmom Scraps, and share it with us!! But first, stop by the shop for some of the fabulous new mixes, including the Puppy Dog Tales mix!!
