Snowy Thursday + a Quick Layout

hi there,
I know I usually put a post on what I am working on on Thursdays; however, my desk is still the same--clean!  I have not done anything for the past two weeks.  Just way to much to do.  I have one more school day--hooray!  Just trying to wrap things up and then get things ready for the holidays here.  We are all still trying to recover from our huge party last weekend!

Off They Go!

This is a layout I did for a contest at backporchmemories.com.  (it didn't win), but it was a hit with me.  I tried a couple of things that I had never really done on a layout before.  I always like to try new things.  Fist off I put glossy accents on my die cut letters to give it that shiny epoxy look--I know you can't see it in the pictures--sorry and then I had never used such a huge die cut before with the tree.  Actually I cut the tree out of the pattern paper and then added the chipboard ghost and bat. 

I just love this picture of Jack and Michael.  They were getting ready to leave for Beggar's Night and I just happened to have my camera as they were walking down the driveway.  Just priceless!






Supplies
Cardstock:  bazzill
pattern paper:  Little Yellow Bicycle
embellies :  LYB
glossy accents

I hope everyone has a great day!  I need to get packing because my monthly scrap event is tomorrow plus tomorrow is my last day of school!  So bunches to do!!!  I want to thank everyone for stopping by today!

Oh, I love the taken-from-behind photos! They are just too precious! Great layout. I love to try out new techniques too. I've been wanting to use glossy accents more - this is a great idea!
