Hi everyone - time for another sketch challenge over at Let's Capture These Sketches. I hope you will hop on over to their blog to see what the rest of the team has created.

For this layout I wanted to really bring in a softness to the halloween theme by adding flowers and lots of lace. These laces are from Love My Tapes. I used 3 different laces, but it's not overwhelming because they are all the same shape, creating repetition.

I had been hoarding this chipboard fence for a couple of years I think - so glad I finally dug it out and used it. It's been sprayed with glimmer mist in Raven and Haunted Shadows.

I added the Prima halloween vine to make sure it didn't get too 'pretty' for a hallowe'en page. I like the balance between this and the flowers.

I cut out my title and mounted it on pop-dots to make it stand out a little easier.

PP - Fancy Pants
lace - Love My Tapes (12mm lace light green, pale pink, black)
letters - Basic Grey
chipboard - Riff Raff
flowers, vine - Prima Marketing
jewels - Doodlebug
glimmer mist - Tattered Angels (Haunted Shadows, Raven)
