Halloween at SOUS !

This Friday's sketch at stuck on u sketches by Nanne is frighteningly perfect for Halloween pics and as our fabulous DT also demonstrates,
it works for everyday pics as well!
 It's always fun to see on reveal day how everyone works so differently with the same sketch !

Here is my take on the sketch:

The pic is my daughter at last year's Halloween Dance. She got to dance with her crush and declared it."The best day in my life..well,so far." Love this kid!
 The papers are the new Echo Park and can be found at the Flying Unicorn Store.
To accent her spooky fairy costume [had to be cool this year, of course], I used the Cricut oldie but goodie "A Child's Year" cart to make the little matching fairy. I made the wings by adding embossing powder and glamour glitter to fussy cut butterfly wings and let that harden. Then I added chunky embossing powder till I achieved the ghost effect.

Using the cracked glass tutorial found by Patti Hamil on the Scrap That! blog, I created the cracks in the wings and on the fussy cut title as well. I love the vintage-distressed look it creates!
Thanks for checking out my page and be sure to check out the rest of the DT's creations. Link up your own wicked awesomeness and you might be one of our Top 3 Picks and snag that honor badge for your blog! Happy Halloween!
