Kinder Kastle

Kinder Kastle

Hello friends! We started our week with a rainy monday but as it turns out we are due again for some seriously warm weather! =)  I just hope that lasts for all the Halloween activities the coming weekends! 

I wanted to share today my project for this week at The Cutting Cafe. For my layout I used the new Spiders and Their Webs file. I really like to options for this, the borders, images, and some neat extra's like the tiny tag I used, or the web squares that could be used as a layered piece on a card.

My background paper was a left over sheet from My Minds Eye, a couple years ago. I resized the spiders from the CC file and then cut the bodies out and drew in a few legs (a few to less for the real spiders!) I stamped and embossed with Distress Powders on the roof tops and sprayed the page with my first purchase of anything by Tattered Angels (the chalkboard spray in white).

My tiny tag and some flower layering.

And that cool spider web border is from the CC file as well...really fun! I guess this was a bit of a quick post but who has time to read so much during the week days? LOL! And now that I've done this post, I just may go back and actually add that title to this page...pretty sweet! This was last year's kindergarten photo for my son Scotti!

What an adorable layout. I love the castle as the backdrop for that fantastic picture. Made me think about all the Halloween parties in former classrooms. Now that I'm retired I don't get to see all those cute costumes. Great job!
