Happy Halloween and happy colliding! :)

For my project today I created a 12x12 scrapbook LO.  I wanted to use two images - one from Christy and one from Betty in large format.  Obviously too large for a card.  I chose Devina from Simply Betty and Spooky Birthday from Tiddly Inks

I used a mat stack so that everything would be easily coordinated.  I also paper pieced both ladies with the coordinating paper.  Devina's bustiere and Spooky Birthday's dress and hat are all paper pieced.  I added sparkly deliciousness to Devina's gown and Spooky's hair and witch hat.
 The ladies measure about 6" tall each.  The rest of the gals are colored with my Copic and Prismacolor markers.  I trimmed them out, glittered them up and set them aside to dry.

I worked on my page while they dried.  I ran designer paper through the center creating a balanced focal point.  I stitched the papers together with a wide zig zag stitch.

I then added 3 self adhesive border stickers to pull in the colors and compliment the gals.  I created 2 areas for journaling or photos using the same coordinating papers.  These squares measure 4x4.

I used my photo corner punch to embellish both photo squares as well as the entire 12x12 page itself to help tie it all in together. 

As a last piece, I added 11 bats as over at the SBS Challenge blog today is the 11TH day of Halloween!!!  I'm pretty impressed with myself that I was able to combine 3 projects into one!!!

I hope you enjoy and have been inspired to play along!!!!  I will be offering up a free surprise TI image to one lucky person!!!  Please leave me some love with your email and when the hop is over I will use random.org to pull a number and I will email you with your free image!!  (Christy said it was ok!! =) 

Please keep on hopping to the always fabulous Nicole's blog!!!

Crafty Hugs!!
