I Scream Treat!!!

It's October and Halloween is fast approaching ... I'm seeing lots of orange creeping into pages and kits ... and there's plenty of orange in my October Counterfeit Kit, but that post title isn't quite what it seems ...

I have at last made a start on scrapping the photos from our 2004 Florida holiday and one of the highlights was a pre-booked treat for everyone at the Garden Grill in Epcot ... the "Ice-cream Social" ... where you could meet various Disney characters as well as indulge in yummy ice-cream in the rotating restaurant.  I've already shared a page made with some of the scraps from this one, but this one came first:

Layout - Ice-Cream Social - Jimjams

I've based it on Sketch #216 from Nuts About Sketches, which was chosen for the UKScrappers October monthly challenge.  I'm always happy to find a new and interesting sketch site and have several more of theirs bookmarked for future pages.

Layout detail - paper covered chipboard letters

Those paper covered chipboard letters were a labour of love ... it would have been so much quicker to paint them!

I really like the way do did the social letters and your little tags. If I may ask? What size is you large square?

Wow I hadn't realise you covered all those letters they look so good well done indeed. Oh and I love the title of your post here :D

lol - yes, I've covered alphas with pp and I've painted them, and I know which I prefer!! These look fab though, as does the page :)

Oh, those letters are so very pretty! I can imagine it must have taken A LOT of work and time - but they add so much to this happy page. I love ice-cream too. D'you think if I scream "Treat!" from here, peremptorily enough, Someone Downstairs will bring me one? Lovely page ...

The chipboard letters look amazing - well worth the effort I'd say. Your handiwork is meticulous. Total respect!

I'm staring at the letters - especially the middle of the 'O'. Just think of the calories you burned off.... definitely deserve another ice cream ;)

Love the colours and fun sketch stuff too.
