 Hey there! Happy Friday! I can't believe we are almost to Halloween - has this not been both the longest and shortest year ever? Today I am sharing a scrapbook layout with you featuring the spook-tacluar "Ghost Town" collection! I had such a blast using this collection to create a throwback layout of my kiddos a few years back. (Why do they have to grow up?) 

My kiddos loved Halloween, I mean LOVED Halloween! They would plan for months what their costumes would be and how we would decorate our house and what candy we would pass out. They had such a fun time and I loved how festive they were. Of course, I took oodles of photos of them and loved seeing their little personalities in the costumes they picked out. Such precious memories! Anyway - here is the layout!

Like I usually do, I started getting inspiration from a sketch to create my layout. This time I used this layout that is part of this month's PageMaps. I really liked the multiple photos on this layout- 3 photos - 3 kids! Worked perfectly!

As you can see, I used quite a few of the pattern papers in the collection like the sketch shows.  I also decided to move the line in the middle of the layout to the bottom by using some of the border strips found on the Star Bright paper. I then got to use some of the Odds and ends to decorate my layout. I loved all the little ghosties in the collection so I used a couple on my layout. I also used some of the star sprinkles found on the "Halloween Night" Shaped Sprinkles. I also added this adorable banner die cut underneath my photo block. This is from the Chit Chat die cuts.

Up in this corner are some super fun bats. I added them to the top right corner of the layout. I  also added the "Batty for You" speech bubble from our Chit Chat die cuts. You can also see that I used some of my favorite Stickles on the cheeks of all of my die cuts. I love the extra little sparkle the Stickles give to the die cuts. I used the Unicorn shade. You can also see that I added some ink splatters on my white cardstock background - I love doing this lately as it breaks up the stark contrast of the white cardstock against the bright pattern paper. 

I turned to the "This and That" sticker sheet for my title. I thought the green looked so fun next to all of the pattern papers. I also used the fun journal spots that are found on the back of the Boutique Plaid paper. I don't often add my own handwriting to my layouts but I really loved this card and it added that beautiful pop of aqua to the layout that I thought was just the right touch. How cute is that little ghostie with a bow? I love her! 

This layout came together so quickly with the help of the sketch and all of the darling coordinating products in this collection. So even if your kids are 3 or 23, you can use the "Ghost Town" collection to create oodles of Halloween layouts and projects to cherish for years to come! Happy crafting and Happy Halloween my friends!
