I'm so honored to be the Guest Blogger on 2 Peas today!!! I was asked to create a Halloween layout for the Two Peas in a Bucket SpookCraftular Halloween event. From my blog post at 2Peas:
From the time they were toddlers, my girls always wanted to dress up as princesses for Halloween. Sure, there were the standard pumpkin and Elmo costumes that I proudly dressed them in when they were babies, but they didn’t have much say in it at the time. Since then it’s been a parade of various princess costumes every Halloween – Cinderella, Ariel, Snow White . . . . well, you know the rest. Last Halloween my girls decided that they were “over” princesses (when did that happen and why didn’t I get the memo??). After talking about all the costume options and changing their minds several times (it is a woman’s prerogative, right?), my girls both decided that they wanted to be High School Musical cheerleaders. I thought they looked adorable in their shiny, sparkly costumes, and it was fun to watch them as they danced around and cheered with their pom-poms. But I have to admit, I still miss the princess phase. Ce La Vie.
Here’s a Halloween layout featuring my little cheerleaders from last year. As the girls’ candy-filled pumpkins got heavier and heavier while trick-or-treating, my husband and I ended up holding their pom-poms for them. Isn’t that the way it always happens . . . they get the candy and the parents get stuck holding the pom-poms.

I added a Prima Lilliput rose and some fabric rosettes I made:
Shimmerz Spritz and Espresso Shimmerz paint.
I also created a sketch to go along with this layout. Feel free to use it!
