2 Cute 2 Spook - ACB Freaky Friday Challenge

What a weekend! After enjoying a night out with my friend on Friday for dinner and Zombieland - which, surprisingly I really liked, my son fell ill with a really high fever and nasty, hacking cough. He was a little better yesterday afternoon, so we had family date day with Chinese food for lunch and costume shopping. After 6 months of Sophia telling me she wants to be a witch for Halloween, we got to Target and she changed her mind. Now she's going as Daphne from Scooby Doo, and Andrew's going as a wizard.
Later that night, Andrew's fever and cough were back in full force. Now Sophia's complaining of a sore throat and she's a little warm to boot. Bummer... it looks like it's going to be a long week! I did get lots of house work and laundry done, plus this stinkin' cute layout.
This was done for the Freaky Friday Challenge at AC Bailey Designs forum. Did you know that if you win one of the Freaky Friday Challenges that you get a $10 gift certificate to the store? Pretty awesome, in my opinion. We've got lots of great deals over there right now too! Check it out.
The challenge this week was to create a layout using punches to create a background design. On this, I used my old CM circle punch to create a faux-scalloped circle background and the Fiskars apron lace punch for the purple Bazzill cardstock. Almost everything here was from my October Goodies of the Month kit, including the Bazzill cardstock, Pink Paislee patterned paper for the small circles and Making Memories Halloween pins. I also used a little My Mind's Eye Nightlight paper for the big circle, Bo Bunny ribbon and Sizzix swirly stamps, plus some Close To My heart letter stamps & inks. Minus the CTMH products, everything else I used can be found at the ACB store.
