Make it Monday No. 29

These ladies are amazing!!  Loving the layouts and card they created using Katie's sketch.
Hope you will play along with us using the second sketch for November as inspiration and 
the twist is to use a mixed media element.

For Halloween, we were...


As most of you probably know, I LOVE Halloween.  We have been doing a family theme for years.  
It is such a fun time and makes for wonderful memories.  Not to mention, great scrapbook pages!

 Frankenstein, the Headless Horseman, Maleficent and Medusa

I have "scales" on my face!

My daughter's makeup was done by me.  I am no make-up artist but with the help 
of a tutorial from Kandee Johnson, the look was complete.  After the 3rd time 
applying it (different days) I felt like a "pro."

Photo Booth Fun - at our party!!  It was a huge hit.


My son surprised his Compara, (Godfather) with a matching costume.  I found it the day
 before for $5! It also came in handy for wearing to school (which was a first).  
He could not have worn the Headless Horseman costume.

Thanks for looking!
Happy Belated Halloween,
