Eek! & Anna (SBSC163)

At left is the Scrap Book Sketch Challenge #163 layout. My left side layout is very similar to the sketch. My right side is somewhat similar except I used only three photos and tilted my center photo to the left instead of to the right. I love these sketches because they really do give me a good start on a page!

I just had to do some scrap booking because I still had these photos in my camera! We went to my son and daughter-in-law's on Halloween. Of course we brought our youngest son, Eddie, so he could go trick-or-treating with Calvin, my step-grandson. They are almost the same age!

The left page shows Eddie in his Ghost Pirate costume at top left, both boys are in the middle, and Calvin, the Monster Football Player is at the bottom. Boys their age (13) just seem to love ugly masks for their Halloween costumes! The title of the page is, "Eek!" because they are scary monsters. The journaling goes down the orange designer paper strip, next to the stamped spiders. Those black spiders are foam stickers I got at the dollar store.

The right side page is my grand-daughter, Anna. She's 3. At lower right is her daddy, my oldest son. I used the same wheel on this page to tie the two pages together and to use the design in the sketch, but instead of foam spiders, I used foam pumpkin stickers which go with her trick-or-treat pumpkin. Everyone had fun, and my son barbecued an excellent dinner!
