How To: Use a scratch piece of printer paper and a pencil to measure the size of the chevron shape that runs across the Fright & Fun paper.  Trace chevron shape and trim, use your trimmed piece as a template to create other chevron shapes out of 6"x6" pattern paper pad.  Trim out about 18 chevron shapes, each out of different pattern papers.  Adhere
to background paper in a pattern moving to every other chevron.  Use a sewing machine and black thread to stitch down shapes.  Splatter black spray mist across the page, set aside to dry.  Print a 4"x6" photo and adhere to center right side of layout. Place a "Happy Halloween" chipboard sticker piece overlapping the top right hand side of photo.  Overlap the "Happy Halloween To You" and "Admit One" chipboard sticker pieces and adhere under photo.  Place "Admit One 31" and "Halloween" ephemera pieces just above chipboard pieces overlapping the bottom right hand side of photo.  Spell out title "EEK" using thickers shaped stickers on the middle left hand side of layout.  Run the "Spooky Fun" ephemera
arrow die-cut through the Minc machine using orange reactive foil. Adhere to page just below title.  Adhere chipboard "31" sticker piece right below "Spooky Fun" arrow piece. Arrange bat ephemera piece, bat wood veneer piece and bat shaped thicker shaped sticker just above title in a sporadic fashion.  Adhere two glitter chipboard chevron pieces just
above photo.  Adhere chipboard spider web and "31" ephemera piece to right side of photo. Apply enamel dots to chipboard star piece and wood veneer star and adhere to top right hand side of layout.  Finish by adding two black ephemera star pieces to page.
