Jeepers Creepers-Not Just For Halloween

So, if you've been following me you hear me say all the time that so many of the themed paper packs from Close To My Heart are very flexible and can be used for almost any kind of layout.  Jeepers Creepers Workshop was challenging because it's very Halloween themed.. that being said.. so many of the papers are not themed, but are very cute, fun and versatile!  Here, I started with a regular piece of white cardstock and splattered some various colors of watercolor paint on in the colors I was using from the paper pack (or close).. and of course I sprayed a few gold droplets on as well because... that's how I am!

These one page layouts are perfect for those random pics you take... the day to day.. playing on the playground... in the backyard... the kids are doing something adorable or look particularly cute that you just can't stand it and you need to capture it... this little guy is 22 now... yup.. I cut the Happy sentiment and hearts from glitter paper using the new dies and black glitter cardstock.  The stars and arrows came from the Complements that came with the workshop and are black glitter chipboard and I just used a few leftover papers, some washi tape (that also came with the workshop) and some shimmer trim in teal.

And then I mirrored all of the above down in the opposite corner.  For a final touch I added some sequins and some dots in various colors.  Next weekend one of my friends/customers is hosting a Jeepers Creepers workshop and along with all of the 2 page layouts in the workshop, we'll do this one page layout.  (I did cut them an extra word and a couple hearts).

Here are the layouts that are in the workshop:

This one is mostly as it is in the workshop as far as the layout and papers.

I'm a little short on Halloween pics as most of them are scrapbooked already, so I found some pics that were not Halloween and modified this one a little ... I love the way it came out... Double Trouble for sure!

And this one is mostly like the layout also, but I had to modify it because these pics are from way back when we had film and 3 1/2 x 5"!  But I mostly cropped the extra space out of the photos and fit them within the mats cut from the workshop.  For mine I did add some extra purple because I goofed and cut my pics a little too small... it happens... but it was a happy accident!

Thanks for stopping and come back tomorrow for my Cutting Cafe/Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge mashup!
