If you have to go in costume, you may as well glam it up--Taylor Swift's sequin black dress, black boots, and curly blonde hair, along with a homemade glittery guitar.  Fun but not too complicated or cumbersome in order to enjoy the party.  So here is dd2 in costume last year for Halloween.

You know I always match my layout to a song.  Well, this "haunted" sticker kept calling to me as I was making this layout, but I didn't think it would fit in my theme.  Then when I was looking for a Taylor Swift song that hopefully would work for Halloween, I came across her song, Haunted.  How bizarre is that?!?!

The layout title seems simple enough, but it's actually Flying Unicorn dt Denise's idea to make a project incorporating the title of a horror movie.  It's this week's challenge during our Scrapoween event. The challenge motivated me to get this photo scrapped. I chose the horror movie title, Halloween.  I know, not too creative but then any other title didn't really fit this pretty photo.

And of course you know I'm going to talk about product since I'm on the Flying Unicorn Product Creative Team.
From the Flying Unicorn on-line store Fancy Pants Designs: Oct31 collection:  paper, heart, star and haunted stickers, scallop strip, glitter cut; Pink Paislee Phantom House of 3 collection: black rhinestone brad, transparent frame; Petaloo black flower
From my stash:  Tim Holtz tissue tape, black dresden thin fleur border, etc.

My October challenge in the Flying Unicorn forum is Seasonal Adaptation.  I adapted some butterflies (Martha Stewart punch) by using black paper and a silver gel pen.

We have a new Flying Unicorn Forum badge!!!  Look at the top right on my sidebar and you will see it.  Click on it and it will take you to the Forum for the challenges.  See you there!

Great piece - the music nearly knocked me flat, I had my speakers on full; hope I didn't wake the neighbours, but I like it! Valerie
