Boo To You and You, Happy Halloween

Here is my take on the Frosted Designs Sketch Along Tuesday Sketch #16.  Instead of a circle, I started with a pumpkin!

Here is the sketch that I worked from.  I create 2 page layouts most of the time, so I found  way to stretch this sketch into 2 pages!

I started with the pumpkin from Create A Critter sized at 9.5w x 8.53h.  I used the font from Nate's ABCs sized at 1"h and welded together to spell out words from the Disney Parade song (believe me I can still hear the song clearly in my head!) Boo To You and You, Happy Halloween.  I put them on a new layer so I could make sure they would fit on the page with the pumpkin.

Of course, when I put my layouts together I changed my mind and spread out the words onto both pages....a girl can change her mind!!

The parade starts with a headless horseman, so I added this one from Happy Hauntings sized at 3"h.

I added some more of the pumpkins, 2 of them at 5.56w x 4.99h and one at 4.60w x 4.13h.

I used a K&Co. pumpkin border strip and three candy corn buttons to finish the page.

Here is my headless horseman.  I added black stickles to his cape for added drama.

I cut off the button shanks with a wire cutter and pop dotted the buttons to the layout.

Here is my coordinating page.

And here are the two pages together.  I love when I come across a sketch challenge that works for layouts on my to-do list!!!  Of course, now I am getting Disney fever again!!  Shhhhh, don't tell my husband!!
