Halloween 2014 with a March 2015 CKC Blog Hop

Welcome to the March 2015 Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog Member Blog Hop, so happy your here to join us. I finally was able to put together one of the 2014 Halloween layouts I wanted to get done :) If you are coming from the fabulous Margie's blog then your right on track. The challenges this month are:
Challenge #1:  Border Craze:  Get crazy with borders
Challenge #2:  Irish Challenge: Celebrate St Patrick's Day with some creativity!
Challenge #3:  Desk Challenge: Take inspiration from the state of your desk


This is my take on Challenge #1. I knew that I would be doing #1 when I seen it come out as the 1st challenge and also after I seen the sketch from Stick It Down was perfect for the challenge so I knew that I would be using that too. But really if you seen my craft desk right now then this layout would also fit that challenge as my desk one side of it clear to scrap a page and the other side is all stacked up with papers, tools, bits and pieces just like that border is, but I will stick with my first choice when I joined in for the hop.
So I used this sketch from Stick It Down****Edit*** Featured layout over at Stick It Down

I started with the chevron background that came from The Gilded Paper pack from last month's kit and also grabbed the dazzle's October pack that I pulled out for the halloween pictures that I wanted to do in January's kit. All the Halloween doo dads also came from that kit. I guess better late than not at all :)
 I pulled together all my Halloween embellishments for the border, I used a little bit of anything and everything: stickers, sequins, dazzle stickers, a flair button and some die cut pieces.
 The title came from a cut up piece and some alpha's from this month's kit. The journaling black is from a sticker sheet that I have been really working at to eliminate from my stash. The rest of the border section of the layout.
 A little dazzles in this section of the layout
Andrea was dressed as a Greek goddess, Astacia wasn't quite sure what she was dressed up as. In the next picture is Zachary as Spiderman and Tristan as a lion or a bear I'm thinking. the last photo is Tristan and Astacia and a photobomb by Tristan's dad, Brad :) This is Tristan's first Halloween, but I will be doing a special page for his book with another layout.
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of the hop :) Next off to see what amazing project Laura has done. If you found me first, go over to Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog to start at the beginning of the hop.We would love to have you join along with us and get those projects and layouts done :)
