**Now on to the reveal**

My first layout is based off our sketch!

This is my dear niece. I love to scrap her!
I did some fussy cutting on the papers and added some Dusty Attic. The flowers are the new Delicate Asters
from Heartfelt Creations.

The papers in this kit are gorgeous and make for a very elegant Halloween.

I painted the Dusty attic frame in black smooch then broke it up to make four corners. I use Black Puffs embossing powder on the Ravens.

This is a photo of my dear daughter. She always make a great scrap subject! I painted a Dusty Attic frame in gold acrylic then randomly embossed in gold embossing powder. The gorgeous butterfly was a treat to behold in our kits this month!

The beautiful large flower and small flowers were in the kit! Love!
I used the Sunflower stamps from Heartfelt Creations to make some of my own flowers. 

There is Mandy's pin peeking out of my flowers!

This is a photo of my little daughter sitting in a patch of pumpkins. I cut my photo in three. I also fussy cut one the papers featuring pumpkins.

I added some cheesecloth and sprayed with Dylusions inks in a purple tone.

I used one of the Dusty Attic trees and cut it up so I could have a piece on each side overlooking the patch. I used gesso and some perfect pearls and stickles in purple.

This project is an altered Laughing Cow cheese box. The witch is a graphic from "The Graphics Fairy" and the fence and pumpkins are Dusty Attic.
I used the Maya Road Wood trees in the kit and dabbed some distress stain on them.
The fence was covered in gesso then I stamped on it. The pumpkins were painted orange and stamped on as well. I lined the inside of the box with pattern paper and added the Graphic 45 keyhole and little doily punch.
This is the sideview. I used the pretty glitter MME papers and punched them. The scene is layered on the top of the box. 


I hope you enjoyed my reveal!
Your next stop is
Now go on and enjoy the rest of the hop!

Your projects are stunning. I agree that the kit this month can be elegant for Halloween layouts. I love the idea of cutting a photo into 3 parts for a layout also. I will have to try that. Thank you also for explaining what did with each project.

Love what you did with the frames in your LO. I never seem to think of taking something apart for a project, I really should try that more often. The Laughing Cow altered box was a great idea.
