More Doodlebug Halloween Parade Layouts

I'm back today to share some layouts that were featured on the Doodlebug blog yesterday.

This first layout was the first project I created with the Halloween Parade collection so it was particularly fun creating with a fresh new box of untouched goodies!  I knew I wanted to find a way to use that darling haunted house neighborhood paper and in the end I tried to find the best section to squeeze onto my little border. 

My title was taken from Icon Cardstock Sticker sheet.  I thought it would be fun to dress it up a bit so I mounted the word "or" onto a metal rimmed office tag, pairing it with an old school Doodlebug eyelet and doodle twine.  The banner for my layout was created using the fancy frill stickers topped with the new doodle sprinkles (my new favorite).  ;)

For my journaling I used one of the 4x6 album inserts and dressed it up with some machine stitching to give the appearance of extra layers.  I love the haunted house doodlepop and thought it was the perfect embellishment to match my photos and journaling.

My second layout focused on photos of us carving pumpkins so I tried to use all the pumpkin images from the collection.  I started by selecting the pumpkin patterned paper and pulling all my colors for the page from it. 

I really struggled with my title and finding the perfect placement and combination of fonts.  After much trial and error I came across the darling "KG Strawberry Limeade" font which I cut on my Silhouette Cameo for the word "fall" (pairing with beetle black teensy type cardstock stickers for the word "favorite")

For my little pumpkin grouping I used stickers and doodlepops from several different sheets, popping up one of the pumpkins with foam tape to give different levels of dimension.  I though the cat fit in well with our kitty pumpkins.  Another favorite of mine are Doodlebug's super cute star jewels!

I once again journaled on one of the 4x6 album inserts.  The card came with a pumpkin printed on it, but I decided I liked the look of another doodlepop layered over the top instead.

Well, there ya have it.  I want to thank Doodlebug for this amazing opportunity.  I have idolized this amazing company for almost 13 years now so working with their products has been a dream come true.  :)
