Same Song...Different Dance

As promised, I finished a layout using the subdued flip sides of the Fancy Pants Trick or Treat line. I love double sided paper. The whimisical sides can be seen below in my Heebie Jeebies layout. The paper was featured in the Fancy Pants Halloween Deluxe Scrapbook Kit from Lil' Lambs Boutique.

I decided this year to be smart and take pictures this past week, on a sunny, warmer day of my two daughters in their Halloween costumes. My oldest is avidly searching high and low for her Prince Charming and insisted on being a "wedding girl." My youngest wanted to be a Dragon and for lack of finding a cute Dragon costume, she opted for the Mermaid. And boy is she working that Mermaid Costume. The wigs were completely my choice and I love oldest not so much, my youngest, well, she's like her Momma.

This kit was chock full of goodies but my favorite was the Rock Candy Crackle Paint and the Basic Grey Bling It pack. I decided to use the Crackle Paint (Rock Candy is clear) on my photo mats and the folded flowers. The Bling It jewels made perfect bases for my flowers.

I also had some fun with the extra bling I didn't use on the flowers and made this little butterfly.

I added some Liquid Pearl (Ranger) dots to accent the flourishes and photo mats. I think they give a nice softening effect.

Since, we're quite North of the Equator, it's a pretty good possibility that I'll have to winterize these costumes (booo!) and my oldest refuses to wear the wig for Trick or Treating, so I'm really glad I got these pictures.

Happy Trick or Treating this Saturday!!!
