MaggieMae – Jack-O-Lantern Layout
In the Groove
October is the traditional month of jack-o-lanterns, bags of candy, and scary stories. But digi scrappers have another tradition – making layouts of their own adorable ghosties! This issue, enjoy some of our favorite Halloween-themed layouts by Scrapbook MAX!-ers featuring charming boys and ghouls…um…girls. (We’re looking forward to seeing new Halloween layouts in the gallery later in the month, too!)
Read on (if you dare!) to find a spooky challenge and freebie from Siobhan Kite (we think you’ll find it’s very “gourd”). There’s also a discount coupon for some of Siobhan’s not-at-all-scary kits in the store (in fact, they’re just plain gorgeous!).
Happy Scrapping, and Happy Halloween!
Have you ever seen a cuter skeleton or more adorable little tiger? These layouts capture the fun of Halloween (look at that skeleton in lemonaded6363’s layout beam from ear to ear!). We also love how the little images in ScrapBug’s layout tell a whole story of a first Halloween – where our Halloween baby goes from being not-so-sure, to happy, to asleep!

ScrapBug- Halloween Layout
These are just awesome photos! From the fun striped tights of a spunky witch in WendyG’s layout, to the hilariously unexpected duckling photo (what a great get-up!) in LadyTrish’s page, you had us laughing so hard, we didn’t hear the trick-or-treaters at the door!

The Groove’s Monthly Freebie Challenge!
Halloween-themed freebie kit by Scrapbook MAX! digital kit designer Siobhan Kite
Each month, a designer offers a great freebie mini-kit and issues a challenge based on that kit. All you need to do is download the freebie, create a layout that steps up to the challenge, upload it to the Groove challenge and post a link to your layout in a reply to the challenge thread!
This month, designer Siobhan Kite has shared a spooky Halloween-themed kit (elements in blacks, oranges, and a balancing charcoal grey – very nice!). Get ready to make some “hauntingly” beautiful pages!
USING ONLY THESE ELEMENTS, CREATE A LAYOUT. WHEN ADDING A PHOTO, GO TO THE ADVANCED TAB ON THE PROPERTIES BOX AND MANIPULATE THE COLORS TO CREATE A SUPER CREEPY DISPLAY.
