fa-BOO-lous halloween inspiration week

Good morning! This week on Tamara Tripodi's blog, Happy Life, Crafty Wife, she is featuring Halloween projects. Some of the Carta Bella girls have some projects using the Carta Bella All Hallow's Eve collection up today.
I created a layout featuring a photo from Halloween last year:
A lot of Halloween collections have purple and green in them, so I was happy to see that All Hallow's Eve had a pretty neutral color palette, went perfect with the photo of my adorable puppy;)

Here are some close ups:

I wasn't crazy about the words on the banner, it seemed like too much text on my layout, so I covered them up with little strips of patterned paper and stitched down the middle.

 Make sure you check out Tamara's blog to see other projects using All Hallow's Eve and check back all week...she has some great prizes and inspiration going on over there!

I saw this on Tamara's post today and love it. I too love the more neutral pallette especially because I have a year with really bright costumes that don't go with some of the other lines. I love your idea about the banner. Following your feed through google reader now.

Love this Layout! (and the title!) I too love this collection because it's non-traditional Halloween, it really makes some great projects. Thanks for sharing!
