Halloween Haunted House Clipboard

Fall is just around the corner and it always makes me want to make Halloween mixed media projects. I made this spooky Halloween haunted house clipboard using tons of Tim Holtz products and techniques. His haunted house dies are always fabulous! The Distress Oxide Ink and Distress Mica Spray background set the scene for this spooky haunted house and graveyard mixed media piece. The headstones look like they've been sitting in the graveyard for hundreds of years and the fence looks like real wrought iron. I absolutely love how this project turned out!

 

I need to give a special shout out to Emma Williams because I've learned so much from her and it helped me gain the confidence to make this project. Thanks, Emma!

Dog Scrapbook Layout

I created this scrapbook layout to honor our dog Bert. We adopted him from the Wisconsin Humane Society in September of 2005. He was our constant companion and family member for 13 years. Sadly, we had to say goodbye to him in March of 2018. There isn't a day that goes by that we don't think fondly of him and how much he meant to us. We are finally at a place where we can talk about him and not tear up. He really had a big personality for such a little guy. In the words of my daughter, "Bert was a legend." If you have ever wondered if a shelter dog would make a good family dog, the answer is YES! Please consider adopting a pet from a shelter or rescue. They have so much love to give and you definitely won't regret it!

If you'd like to create this layout for your dog, keep reading for the instructions, as well as a full list of the supplies I used to create the layout.
