{Pumpkin Pie Challenge} with the "Falloween" Classic Kit

Happy Monday!!!  Not just any Monday, but the 1st Monday in OCTOBER!!!  Which means Halloween is on the way!  It's Meridy here and I'm working with the "Falloween" Classic Kit today.  I love this kit, and apparently so did a lot of you, because it's already sold out.  

This week the design team is working with the "Pumpkin Pie Challenge", which is to use either orange or a triangle/wedge shape on our layout.  I decided to use both on this layout about one of our Halloween traditions.

I only had two photos, so I decided to make a rare (for me) single page layout.  I started with the black star background paper and then began cutting triangles from 3 of the patterned papers.  After I cut them, I arranged (and rearranged) the triangles a couple of times until I got them how I wanted them.

I created a little Halloween scene with a few of the Bella Blvd. die cuts that came in this month's kit.  To add some dimension and interest, I used pop dots to pop a few of these die cuts up.

Making my title was my favorite part.  I have already journaled about this tradition on other layouts from previous years, but I still wanted to scrap these pictures.  So I decided I didn't need to journal on this layout.  The title and date stamp are telling all of the information that I feel like I need.  I was able to use one of the Pretty Little Studio cut apart phrases, a Bella Blvd. tag, the Heidi Swapp glitter alphabet, and some of the American Crafts Halloween chipboard stickers in my title.  I pulled the green Tiny Type alphas from my stash.

And that wraps up my layout for the "Pumpkin Pie Challenge".  Check back all week to be inspired by the design team.  I'm excited to see everyone's pages!  I would love to see you share some of your work on the Noel Mignon Member Facebook Page!!!
