Winners Prize Challenge

Halloween Layout - My first real scrap booking page. I won an opportunity back in May to participate in The Grand Prize Winner Challenge   for May - Aug over at the  Scraping 4 Fun Challenge blog (each winner of the challenges held from May thru August have the opportunity to compete).  I received a wonderful sketch and decided I needed to do a scrapbook page of a Halloween picture taken of my son from 1996. I want to do quite a few layouts of my sons childhood so this would be a great start. Here is the sketch:

This was a totally fun project, I can see that scrap booking could be quite addictive!!  The winners challenge is also a contest and each winner is given a number that can be used to vote on, my number is 01-Glenda, hint, hint (only if you are a follower of their blog) :O)!  see Scrapping4FunChallenge
