If you didn't see it, the illustrious Glitter Girl answered my question on Simple Stories and the large quotes and journalling cards you get in a collection pack. I didn't get a chance to play along during the week the challenge was active, but I *was* inspired by this video. Yesterday, after the Halloween card, I figured I'd give it a try with the remnants of my SS Awesome collection as mostly all that's left is 6x12 papers and the quotes/journalling cards. I cobbled the background together from two 6x12 pieces, cut up three different quote blocks, and made a few embellishment clusters like GG does. I'm pretty happy with how it came out, just hoping I can do it a few more times to use up the rest of this collection pack, as well as the other two I have!
Next I decided to conquer the big stack of photos I have from last year's trip to LegoLand and Disneyland with my BFF Katie. None of us had ever been to LegoLand so we took a TON of pictures and I've been intimidated by the idea of scrapping everything interesting there. And to keep it all in a Halloween theme. Glitter Girl also helped me break out of that a bit and I decided only the obviously Halloween photos would need Halloween paper. So this layout has Echo Park Apothecary paper and stickers, along with some ribbon and some washi.
But this layout uses more generic supplies. Paper from Echo Park Everyday Eclectic and Studio Calico Hey Day. I inked it up in orange, so that orange would carry through all the layouts and tie them together.
