Batty For You {Pink Paislee: Twilight - Nightfall and Eclipse; Basic Grey Eerie Black Doilies}

It has been ONE WHOLE MONTH since I've been able to sit down and create something for myself and even then, it wasn't scrapbooking layouts. I've got to admit that while the countdown calendar sure is cute, it was very difficult to find a variety of treats that would fit inside the mini-muffin tins! Sweet treats were easy enough to find, but if you're looking to put little trinkets/toys in there you might need to upgrade to two regular size tins....

Since the last time I scrapped was over a month ago, the pictures left on my desk were Halloween. I had only been able to make one layout using the Scrap For A Cure Fright Fest kit so I broke into it and whipped up 2 layouts. My first experience with Pink Paislee paper - and I love it. Now, I've very excited that the newest kit from my scrapbooking club also has Pink Paislee - for Valentine's Day. I see what all the fuss is about for PP!

I liked the Basic Grey Doilie paper so much that I wouldn't let a single scrap go to waste. I took all of the scraps and pieced them together for the circle background in this layout:The only thing in this LO not from the kit was those gold thickers...Don't you love the little bat pin?So I feel a little odd scrapping Halloween in December but hopefully I'll get caught up soon :) Both LOs were based on a sketch (20 and 18) from 52 Sketches...52 Weeks. I was sad to hear that Julie won't be continuing to add to the site in the new year and I hope that she'll be able to keep the site open for us to go back and use old sketches.

Thanks for stopping by - I hope to be back to updating regularly now!
