This month at Lasting Memories, our theme is October Events. This week, our challenge is to create a Halloween layout.
I love Halloween. It's 3 days after my birthday, so I often combine my birthday party with a Halloween party.
I love anything vintage. Last year, I decided to dress up as Vintage Barbie. I had a dusty rose dress that was my Grandmother's from the 50's. I had these awesome black & white shoes, a black belt and I have TONS of vintage jewelry. I went to my local vintage store and found the fur wrap, lace gloves and black purse. I printed out the Barbie logo, laminated it and placed it on the purse. I did my hair and makeup in 50's styles too.
When I was getting ready to create this layout, the colors in the photos really didn't go with traditional Orange/Black Halloween colors. I started digging through my stash and found the Carta Bella Metropolitan Girl Collection and it was PERFECT!
