October 31st

I just absolutely adore the sketches at Sketches in Thyme.  They almost always seem to inspire me and they also have 2-page layouts at least once a month!  That makes me super happy!  Hence, the inspiration for this layout. 
Here is the left side of the layout.  You see several layers of paper, ribbon, lace, and Washi tape going across the page.  Washi tape (along with double sided tape underneath) were the perfect answer to hold this black lace on the page.  I've not used it in a while because I couldn't figure out how to hold it on without seeing the adhesive or stapling it!
Under the chipboard button, I took a needle and thread and ran it along the top of that Pumpkin Pie ribbon.  Pulling the thread, I made a large ribbon flower and stuck it on a Gluber.  I put the chipboard button on top and accent with smaller stars and another button from Crate Paper.
More of the same over here.  The paper is all from My Mind's Eye.  I won a large prize pack from Papercrafter's Magazine a few years just took me a while to use it all!  Still have a few pieces left!
The star under the title spot here is a larger version of the star on the left page.  I took some scrap paper and kept covering it with Washi tape.  When I had a sufficient amount covered, I ran it through my Stars #2 sizzix die cut to make a matching accent.
