Pumpkin Party - Mad Monday Layout | with Melinda

Living on a farm in Australia means there's absolutely no way I'm going to ever have photos of my children Trick-or-Treating! Dressing up yes, putting on weird make-up yes but nothing to do with door knocking and collecting sweets from neighbours. However, that does not mean I can't use a Halloween themed collection like 'Pumpkin Party' on a layout, especially if the colors are perfect.
My daughter recently finished her football year and it's tradition to celebrate 'Mad Monday' after the season finishes. So, this year her groups of friends wanted to dress as Minions, and my daughter took it one step further and dressed as the 'Purple Minion'. She looked so cute!

I recently purchased a pair of fringing scissors so worked on a layout style that would allow me to give them a go. The new Petite Prints worked perfectly as I was able to choose the same pattern but run with different colors down my heart shape to create the fringed backdrop for the photo.
I just adore this tiny floral on the Petite Prints and the flip side is just as cute with a gorgeous grid pattern. And yes, those two objects are buttons!!! I say a big 'yes' to bringing back the humble button on layouts and cards, which is why I was really excited to see the 'Spooky Town Boutique Button Assortment' as part of this Halloween collection. 

I journaled around the heart using up my Doodlebug Candy Shoppe tiny rub-ons... I'm getting close to running out of this staple so will be sad when I have to go back to hand writing. I hope I've given you inspiration for putting together a fun non-Halloween layout using our Pumpkin Party collection and the new Petite Prints.
