Happy Haunting Layout  



I just can't get enough of Halloween projects! The Happy Haunting collection is perfect to document all your October moments with a little spooky and a little sweet! The touches of pink in this collection are perfect! For this layout I picked a background cut file that I could add a lot of pattern paper to. This pumpkin cut file was perfect for that! I backed all the pumpkins with papers from the Simple Stories Happy Haunting collection.




The photo is of my husband and daughter last year at our Halloween party! We decked out the house in all the spooky things and had some friends over. The kids had so much fun and so did the adults. I backed the photo with some scraps of papers from the collection adding a lot of layers and popped it up on the layout.



I tucked in bits and pieces of ephemera and labels from the Happy Haunting collection. I love that they now offer two ephemera packs one bits and pieces and one filled with tags & frames! The tags & frames pack has a lot of pieces that are great to run through my We R Memory Keepers typewriter.





All the die cuts are popped around the photo with foam adhesive. I love the haunted houses on each side of the photo. I also added an epoxy flair from Scrappin Happy Studio to one of the floral die cut centers. Here is a look at my completed layout using the Simple Stories Happy Haunting collection.



Thanks so much for stopping by today! You can check out the Happy Haunting collection in the A Cherry on Top shop!
