I rarely do one large picture on a scrapbook page, but this story called for it. Plus, it was the only one I had. Getting a picture with the ghouls is very rare and we just stumbled upon a group of them just as we were getting off the ride during Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party.
The look on Nico's face is priceless. He would not take his eyes off the ghoul for a single minute. He gave me the fake cheese grin, but no way was he going to give me a glance. I laugh every time I look at this picture.
I wanted to emphasize the haunted mansion feel, so I made several Cricut cuts (frame in dark grey from the Mini Monsters cart & the gate from Happy Hauntings) in dark grey and black velvet. I layered them until I was happy with the look. I added studs, sponged on some black ink for definition and cut up some webs and spiders (Mini Monsters) to add to my piece.
All of the paper is Jillibean Soup. I love how it adds whimsy to the page and ties in to Nico's "look". I was lucky that it had green in it and matches the picture.
I hope you enjoyed my very first Cricut Circle page. I have a few more projects planned for this month that I hope you enjoy. While they will only be seen by Cricut Circle members on the private blog, I'm sure that you will see the influence of the Cricut on my personal pages right here as well!
