Welcome to Milamemories in the ...Fall / Halloween Blog Hop!

Have fun and thank you for attending our blog hop.

I am so excited this Halloween because this is the first  year that my son is actually dressing up and is excited about it!!! The past years, he has wanted nothing to do with Halloween, so this past weekend we were at the store looking at costumes and he saw this one. I asked him if he would wear it for Halloween and he was so excited and said yes!!! Later that night i had some friends over and he could not wait to show everyone his costume, I just had to take a picture of him showing off and being all excited about it!!
I used a sketch from, I started off with a 12 x 12 piece of patterned paper, then took another piece of 12 x 12 patterned paper in orange and tore the top and bottom ends off, about a 1/2" - 1" from each end. Then i took some black lace and placed it underneath the orange paper. I then cut an 8" x 8" piece of Stampin Up card-stock and distressed it with some Tim Holtz inks in Dusty Concord and Orange Marmalade, i used those colors to distress the edges of the torn paper as well as the note sheet that i did my journaling on. I then took some Glimmer Mist in Pearl and sprayed each sheet of cardstock along with my journaling sheet to give it an awesome shimmery effect. It also blended the distress work a bit more and makes it look smoother. I cut out the Caution sign with Cricut, and of course no layout could be complete without some Prima bling and flowers (yes even for boys LOL)!! Such a super simple and quick layout!! I love using sketches!! Please feel free to let me know if you have any questions!!
