Now while we don’t celebrate Halloween
I thought it would be a great time to scrap a photo of a Jack-o-lantern that Megan carved last year
I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the stars (using a cut file from Marcy Penner) from the pattern paper
I’ve then layered this onto another pattern paper before applying from texture paste and red + yellow mist
I also used my cameo to cut a speech bubble and the “BOO”
and used minimal embellishments, just the Fabscraps wooden button and gorgeous Filigree
I also cut, with the Cameo, this “BOO” journal spot
Products used:
Pattern Paper:  Rustic Tracks, Heritage Script 3, Organic Kitchen, Rustic Outdoors (all from Fabscraps)
Alphas: Jillibean Soup and American Crafts 
Embellishments: Button and Metal Filigree (all from Fabscraps)
Adhesive: double sided tape and Foam mounting tape (all from X-Press It)
Mist: Maya Road and Dylusions 
Other: texture paste, sharpie pen, pen, staples and Silhouette Cameo
Thanks for “Hopping” by
