More scrapping

Sometimes, even when I pre plan a page for a crop, it doesn't end up anything like I thought it would. So is the case with this layout. As I was walking (running) through the expo booths, I came upon the Rusty Pickly booth. oooo such yummy stuff there! I had planned to do a Halloween page with these pictures, you and orange and all those halloween colors, but when I saw these awesome Pirate accessories, I decided to change my plan. After all, the pirate costume was the highlight of Halloween for us this year. Tip: whenever I buy patterned paper, I always buy at least two sheets. You never know what you will need it for! In this case, the paper I liked had the skull and crossbones in the bottom left hand corner and there wasn't a sheet for the right side layout that coordinated. I bought two sheets anyway. When I got down to scrapping it, I found that if I turned the paper so the skull was in the upper right hand corner, it was upside down but I had the coordinating swirls that I wanted. I simply placed a picture over the skull and voila! Coordinating page! I had a hard time using the stickers....they just aren't my thing! I ended up using two stickers and a border sticker on my journaling. It looks a bit like hinges I think. I had picked up these big jewel accents because they were cool...and they ended up looking just perfect on this page! I was pretty happy with how it turned out!
