It’s here! October is finally here! It is officially my favorite month, and what better way to celebrate it then with the 31 Days of Halloween??? This is going to be the biggest, baddest, creepiest Halloween stamping event on the web (or at least we’d like to think so)! 31 Days of Halloween started last year with two like-minded stampers, Terra and Kelli, (fellow Smeared &Smudgers!)who vowed to make and share one Halloween or Day of The Dead stamped project for each day in October. They had a huge response from others who enjoyed it just as much as they did. So without any further adieu, here is my Day 1 project! This is a layout of my dear Mom at Halloween a couple of years ago. This page was originally going to be simple, with only one stamp on it…but it quickly morphed into something complicated and full of stamps! But the end result is way better then I had anticipated…and isn’t it rad when something like that happens??? This was going to be the only stamp I used…it’s from Inkadinkado, and I love it. I embossed it with Purple Pearls so that it’s a little more ghost like on the deep Indigo paper. I framed it with an awesome transparent frame from Recollections and stapled it on. I decided I needed to break out the Glimmer Mist. I used Black Gold and one of their fabulous Glimmer Screens. I sprayed the screen, then flipped it over to get the opposite image on the top of the page. The “Creepy” font is from (gasp!) Martha Stewart. Here you can see the reverse. It’s a good way not to waste Mist. The designer papers I used each have foil on them, so it gives a fabulous sheen to the page. Around the photo, I stamped “look into my eyes” which is from Smeared Ink’s Lil Grumpies set. Please click on any of the photos to see it bigger. There are some fabulous prizes throughout the month, so please make sure you check in with the 31 Days of Halloween group everyday!

Hi Alison I love your scrapbook page the skull stamp is fantastic
Luv Jane xxx
Alison, what a great layout! Love the skull.
I totally love this! It's amazing!!!!
Alright, Halloween! I am so pumped. I am officially bleeding black and peeing orange. I can't think of a better way to kick off the bash than with a hooded spooky mom! And those Strange Skin fellers seem to have some swell stuff! The good thing about a crowd of zombies eviscerating a poor soul is you can use that year round, not just for Halloween! I'm buying two of everything! – Jorge
