Graphic 45 have a layout of  mine on their blog today, it is one I did for CHA. I was asked to use the Happy Haunting collection for a layout. We really don't do Halloween in Australia, although it is starting to catch on, so it is always a challenge to do Halloween layouts with no photos!

I decide to use photos of Anna, my second daughter.  Anna did a trip of a life time last year. She is a Harry Potter fan and she did a tour of England, travelling to all the locations used in the movies. She then travelled to the USA the theme parks in Orlando before returning home. At the Harry Potter theme park, she brought herself a set of robes. As soon as I saw the new papers from Happy Haunting I knew I wanted to used some of Anna’s photos from her trip. I used a piece of Fright Night as the foundation for my layout. I wanted to hide the pumpkin border on the page. Cut strips from Enchanted Garden and placed them over the top. I outlined the green leaves with a touch of glitter. To cover the middle images on the page I used Midnight Magic. I loved the gate on this print, so I cut it out and added to my page with 3l foam squares. I used some words form the sticker sheet and some spells words I printed onto cardstock and glued them onto the fence. I matted my photo and double matted it with Bewitched. I just added my title and corner to finish it. I love all the colours of this new collection, and I will be using it for more layouts on Anna’s trip. I wish you could have see her face when I showed her the finished layout. She was so excited that it the layout was going to America and was on show in the states. She told everyone she met that week that her mum had done  a page with her photo on it and it was going to  America and everyone was goint to see it. 

I have been working on the next page of my book tutorial for Graphic 45, I love the way the page is coming together, so I hope you all like it,
by the way I have used Olde Curiosity Shoppe Print Papers for the page and its a male one!
thanks for looking
