Fence Challenge with SOUS!

 Boy I've been busy, busy, busy with projects lately! I can hardly believe it myself! I have to share a kinda funny something with you all, I finished my project and was getting ready to send it over to Leah so she could add it to the SOUS blog and I was getting my write up ready and I keep everything in a notebook and check them off as I finish them and when I looked I had finished the wrong project, I got the weeks mixed up, lol! Well one good thing is that at least I'm ahead of myself for the next challenge, Woo Hoo for me! So I had to finish this layout in just a couple of hours! It's a good thing I already had it mapped out in Design Studio and I had my idea already because sometimes I just don't have a clue on what I'm going to do. It usually takes me a couple of days to create one of my layouts just because I love to add so many elements on them. So this layout is a pretty simple one for me and actually I can say, I love the way it turned out! Pretty much how I seen it in my head. And it's also good to know that I can get a project done in a couple of hours, lol!
Now my Halloween layout here is for the Stuck On U Sketchs Die Cut Challenge which is "Fence"! My inspiration for this layout is from my fellow Design Team Sister from BBTB2 Donna who does Amazing things with paper! I've been looking for this Martha Stewart punch for about 1 1/2 years and then I seen what Donna did and I just had to find it. I finally did on Ebay and this is how my layout evolved. The Cricut Cartridges I used are A Child's Year for the little Trick Or Treater's, Happy Hauntings for the Haunted House, Ghost, Bat and Saying, and then Good ole George for the Moon! 
Here's a closeup of the left side and the Haunted House is cut @ 7", the Moon @ 5 1/2" and the little Trick or Treaters @ 3". This is a "flat" layout of me, no layers and no texture. I wanted it to really show the Silhouette's of everything. And I love the "Fence" punch. There are fences on alot of the carts but I wanted to use this punch so if you want to recreate it there are some on the cartridges you could use.
Here's a close up of the right side. The Saying is cut @ 2" and the ghost @ 5". I cut the ghost to use as my Journal spot. Not to many extras, just some Bling and Ric Rac and the papers are from some very old DCWV stack.
Here's a close up of the little Trick or Treater's (aren't they the cutest!)
And another close up of those cute Trick or Treaters along with the saying!
Now make sure you pop in over to the Stuck On U Sketches Blog and see what my Amazing Design Team Sisters have created, they're all Amazing and I always love to see how we all interpret the theme for each challenge. I sure hope you join us over at SOUS for the fun "Fence" challenge. Link up your NEW project and you could win the goodies for the month. The more entries you submit the more chances you have.
Hope you have a great weekend, hopefully you'll get to do some crafting this weekend, since I have my next project all finished I may just take the weekend off, lol! Chat with you soon!
((Hugs)) and Take Care,

So Pretty! I love how they have such a classic look and aren't real cartoonish. The colors are AMAZING!
