Oops!!!!!!!

After a 3 week challenge we are back to our usual fortnightly challenges at Squiggle Stamps where our challenge is recycle. For my DT project I decided to do something different and I am keeping up with my resolution to create more layouts this year. I have so many photos I want to use and although this is hardly the time of year for Halloween I wanted to use these photos with the Squiggle Stamps witch's cauldron. I couldn't find a sketch I liked for this so made my own. Both photos were taken in America where they really love to decorate their houses, shops etc whatever the occasion.I've used lots of distress inks and sanded Core'dinations. The lamppost was a Christmas pressy, and is a Marianne die. The corner was made with a Sizzix die. I added some raffia in keeping with the photos. The one at the top always makes me smile. My recycled item is the tag which came fom a piece of clothing. It has a lovely texture to it and I simply used DI vintage photo on it and added some die cut letters.
