Scrapbooking as much as possible, but sometimes getting distracted by birthdays and life!

I Want Candy! (a Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Layout)

I want candy! Thankfully, I’m blessed with a son who’s trying to sell The World’s Finest Chocolate to raise money to go to the state capitol with his class, so I’ve got more than I need right now. But what if you’re an 11 year-old girl and it’s Halloween? You might come up with awesome Halloween costumes and go to a friend’s house to meet up, have a photo op and then head out to round up (and devour) lots of candy! Wait until you see what these girls came up with!

The other thing I am thankful for? Super sweet files from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons! I am so excited to be a part of the team and have a budget to buy the perfect files for my projects!

Why don’t I show you what I mean?

Did you notice the awesome Candy Corn paper in the background (along with all the other coordinating papers) from the Halloween Collection Pattern Pack 2...

 And the super cute Cotton Candy that I did as a print and cut because it was just what I wanted for showing off what my daughter dressed up as in this picture?

And the fun eye ball candy from the Candy Bucket file as a print and cut?

And a speech bubble for my title:Speech-Bubbles-Cut

And how I was able to use coordinating colors for other parts of the layout (background and text fill) from the Halloween Flourish not to mention the Halloween Bats and Swirls papers?

Perfectly adorable, huh?

Of course, having a DT project due is great inspiration for scrapping, but added to that was the Scrappy Friends October Challenges and this awesome sketch from Brenda Ragsdale:

Look familiar, hehe? Then the challenge at Rochelle Spear’s blog was tic-tac-toe:

I used 4 + patterned papers, orange and die cut(s). And for Kelly Holifield there was a fun word challenge:

I used Candy in my title and costume(s) in my journaling.

And if you’re the challenge-loving, Halloween-celebrating type, you’ll want to be sure to play along with the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Trick or Treat Challenge that’s going on. Check out all the details here! And if you didn’t see the hop and all the goodies associated check out the Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons blog (or my post yesterday) to get started!

Other fun stuff that I used on my layout:

Cardstock: Bazzill, Wausau; Printer and Ink: HP; Cutting machine: Silhouette Cameo; Spray Ink: Clearsnap; Ink: Tsukineko; Jewels: Bo Bunny; Sequins: Doodlebug Designs, Pretty Pink Posh; Wood veneer: Studio Calico; Pens: American Crafts, Kuretake; Font: AddamsCapitals; Adhesive: American Crafts, Glue Arts, Glue Dots, Imaginesce, Zig.

If you think you’d like to me to do a tutorial on how I use the digital papers to fill my cutting files or how I work with sketches in the Silhouette software, please be sure to leave a comment below letting me know that and I’ll see if I can get a post going for that soon. I am planning on sharing how I use Evernote to organize my design team projects as well as the challenges that I follow. I am trying to work out how to get a screen shot to share here – once I figure that out, I’ll be sharing.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you’re having a great day and decide to spread the good feelings by leaving a nice comment below! It’s guaranteed to make me smile!
