Trunk or Treat 2011

First off, sorry this has taken me so long to get posted!  I have had it finished for the most part since Sunday, but just kept picking at it for a while and then finally finished the journaling this morning.  It is one of those layouts that I just couldn't get everything where it sat right to me, but finally I decided it was good enough (for now.)  :o)
Last year for Halloween, Eddie was out of town for work, and since Sam was only 14 months old, I decided that he really was too young for trick or treating.  One of the local churches was holding a "Trunk or Treat" event, and I thought that would be the perfect solution... he still got to get into costume and do something fun, but it wouldn't run too late and would be more his speed.  I found this Halloween onesie at Old Navy and just thought he was adorable in it.  It was a comfortable costume.  :o)  They had fashioned a "ball-pit" out of a baby swimming pool and a bunch of plastic balls, and I couldn't keep him out of it!

Both pages together:

Like I said in the sneak peak, I am really glad I am not submitting this to anywhere that had to know who made what on the layout.  All of the patterned papers are at least six years old.  I started with two pieces of kraft cardstock that I spritzed with Heidi Swapp's Color Shine in Bronzer.  The "Happy Halloween" and "Trunk or Treat" letters were white letters that I also spritzed with the Color Shine and then dabbed off the excess with a paper towel which gave them a great textured look.  The little badges are American Crafts Flair in Eeek! (the skull) and Boo! (Jack-o-Lantern and Date) and the orange, black and white tape is Queen and Co. Trendy Tape.
