A Halloween DLO

Hannah went to a Halloween party last week organised by her sixth form, and took loads of photos. It was a fancy dress party, so lots of silly costumes to be seen. I had to make a double Lo for a change, as there were so many pictures, even then i didn't have enough room and had to include an extra piece of card behind the papers for more photos. I'm sure that when she looks back at this LO she will be pleased with it, i went to many parties as a student, but have almost no record of any of them, or my fellow students.

The papers used were lovely Imaginisce from Stampeezee, i liked the spider web paper so much i had to go back and buy another piece for this weeks SLYMI LO.
On the left hand page i used bat die cuts (Sizzlits) and a stamped pumpkin (Unity), i had seen this journalling on a page ages ago, and when Hannah started to talk about the cost of the evening, it seemed to fit perfectly. The corrugated card journalling block is by Prima, torn and distressed with black and orange inks. The title is another Sizzix die, and embossed set called Lyndsey's diary.

On the right hand page I used Black Core'dinations cardstock, and cut the pumpkin face paper using a template. the photos and template were stitched to the page, and journalling added with a Souffle pen in orange. The photos were cut using square Nestabilities, and more die cut bats and stamped pumpkins.Extra photos were tucked behind the pumpkin paper.
After finishing the LO I remembered why i almost never make a DLO, they take so long to make!!!

Another Halloween page tomorrow... arachnophobes beware!

This is a wonderful layout. You've used so many photos yet the double-page LO doesn't look too busy.
I love the papers you've used, the pumpkin stamp and the use of a template, and journaling with an opaque pen. Brilliant!

How fab. My teenage years are woefully short of photos, so agree totally that Hanna will enjoy the 'record'. And what a fun party atmosphere the LO has..alll those smiley faces, it's fab.
