The Title was cut with the Cricut and the Gypsy (welded) from the Happy Hauntings Cart.

Hello again,
Last night I couldn't sleep, so I decided I would scrap a page. Checked out for a challenge,
I had checked this one out when she posted it and thought, this is a awesome one.
I started with a pic of Amanda, and edited it to look scary.
The challenge states,
So therein lays the challenge: Create layouts that are out of your comfort zones. Come on over to the dark side!

This month’s challenge topic will be Blood and Roses. There was an old vampire movie called this and I thought it sounded like it could be an interesting theme. Feel free to interpret the title any way you wish to.

Let your imagination and your dark side loose! Have fun! I can’t wait to see what you all will come up with!

Perfect! Amanda's favorite colors are black and red and her room is solid red and she has zebra sheets.
This page is perfect for her.
Within minutes I found the perfect paper from Creative Imaginations.
They came from past Swirlydoos kits.
I created the title using the Gypsy and Happy Hauntings Cart. from Cricut

The lollipop flower I made, the flowers are Petaloo, and Prima.
The paint is red and black acrylic paint watered up and dripped from the top.
The gate is cut from the October 31st Cricut Cart.
I didn't feel so peppy this morning but hey I got a scrapbook page done.
Have a wonderful week!!
Cyber Hugs,

          Well Hello!! I know it seems like forever even though it has only been week, but a  tough one at that. Dusty stayed sick until Thursday and now everyone is well!! YEAH!!!! I got all the laundry finished up here yesterday and was able to work on this yesterday. As soon as I saw the challenges I started the whole idea...I colored everything in with the Copic markers, the stamps are all Imaginisce. The stamps are the princess, dragon, the carriage, the flowers, and the castle.  The papers are Imaginisce and some Bazzill for cardstock.  The papers are from the Enchanted Collection from Imaginisce.
            The challenges for this projects are based on two challenges for this month one  from the Imaginisce Blog where the fabulous Pinky altered the Christmas clock she had, I was so Inspired that I thought why not use the tic tac toe board I bought at the thrift store a few months back for .98 cents it only came with four oxox pieces. Whenever I do go to the thrift store I am always looking for things to alter, I tell my husband "yes I can do something with it but in my next life" LOL!!! It seems sometimes I have too much to alter, but you never know what might be EXACTLY what you are needing!!! Here are the details from Pinky
