Here's my project I made for this challenge:
(picture heavy post)
Project # 435 of this year
 I have not scrapbooked in FOREVER! I've got that itch and thought I'd make some Halloween layouts. I started out with a background that just wasn't working for me
(green with glitter eyes all over it), and I just couldn't get it going. I kept staring at my empty pages and nothing was fitting together right.

So I tossed those pages aside and went with a solid deep orange background instead. Much mo' betta.  Everything seemed to fall into place once the background was "working" with my imagination.

I recently got a card from one of my BFF's, Tracy. Tracy is so talented and such a really neat-o person. She mailed me a card she had posted on her blog a while back that I went goo-goo over. It was so stinkin' cute! Here's her FRED card...

Tracy's Cricut Corner - Tracy's Zombie Card, Fred
And not only did she mail me the card, but she mailed me FRED to assemble and enjoy on one of my own projects.

Go check out TRACY'S CRICUT CORNER & her FRED card, and leave her some comment love. Tell her I sent you over on my broom. :)

This is what Tracy inspired me to come up with for my scrapbook pages!
