A not so scary Halloween!

Each Halloween our whole family gets dressed up and goes out trick or treating together. I feel so happy that the teenagers still love to get into the spirit of things and want to help make the evening special for the little ones. This year only my 17 year old son adam and his girlfriend Isabel looked really scary. They are both talented artists and painted each others faces. The result was quite stunning - and very freaky!!! The rest of us were a lot less scary and Sophie insisted on dressing up in her new fairy drress (that she had for her birthday) and going out as a fairy princess.
I based my LO on the current Sketchy thursdays sketch. I used a lot of paint and red ink for the background. My base paper was actually from a school themed collection but it seemed to be perfect for this page too. I used my Prima brick stamp (which I am a bit obsessed with at present) to add detail to the background and the rest of my papers are from Pink Paislee and My Minds Eye halloween collections (a lot of which I already had in my stash). The loops of string and button details complete the page nicely.
