Ghouls & Goodies: Non Halloween Layout by Melinda

Boo! It's Friday and the final day of our Ghouls & Goodies inspiration and your last chance to be in the running for one of six spooky prize packs! It's Melinda with you today and once again I'm here to show you how to use a Halloween themed collection for a completely non-Halloween project. You see... unbelievably (as far as my kids are concerned) we don't celebrate Halloween in Australia so fun photos of costumed children collecting sweets just doesn't happen on the farm!


Now seeing as there are so many gorgeous wee characters in this collection I decided to use them to portray a book character theme and share how my little munchkin loves his story time.



And no matter how hard I try, I still can't help myself when it comes to making a collage on my page using all the Doodlebug embellishments. I might outgrow it one day... maybe?




Don't forget you only have until midnight tonight, Friday 12th September to enter the giveaway.

Here's a recap on the details:
