Happy Halloween!

This month From Screen 2 Scrap challenges us to use this movie poster as inspiration:
As an added challenge they ask us to use a black base, a house somewhere on your page, and a title with one word in RED letters.

So I thought I should highlight the Halloween decorations we put outside our house last year:

The house is a page torn out of Somerset Studio magazine. It was made by Michelle Ward. I added our house numbers above the door with black stickers but covered it up to share here since a pirate's lair is top secret. I tried to put my photos around the haunted house as though they were decorating its yard. I used a circle template on the bush photo to give it the landscaping it needs. I did not want to add a red word in the title since there isn't much red anywhere else on the page. Instead I traced HAPPY with an orange pen to make the letters stand out from the patterned paper.

And now I'm in the mood for Halloween! Maybe I'll even watch The Last House on the Left.
