Creations with the New Hoot & Hallows Kit

I made two layouts today using the Hoot and Hallows kit that will be released later this week at CottageArts.net. One layout is of my cat, Bits. I used a gradient adjustment layer to get the darker bottom of the photo so my title would stand out a little more. Plus I wanted to draw out my cat's crazy night eyes! (Additional digi credits: Scrap.Edges Brushes and Overlays 6 www.cottagearts.net & Love Ya Like A Sister @ fontologie)

The other layout uses a template by NadlM at www.angel-dreams-boutique Layout Templates 10. Of course, the Hoots & Hallows kit. I used Jackie's Hand and Jackie's Doodles from fontologie.

I actually made 3 layouts today if you count the fact that my computer locked up when I was nearly done the 2nd one, and I lost the whole thing. I was so mad! AHHHH! But I just went right back and whipped it out since all the thinking had already been done on the first go-round!

Hope you notice that both these layouts have nothing to do with Halloween, yet they use a kit that does have a Halloween tilt to it. However, Michelle wanted to make sure that it was useful in more ways than one, and she definitely did a great job. Don't you agree???

DD and Dh and some of her crew went to the state fair today. Dh took photos for me to scrap. Such a good scrapping husband isn't he! So I'll be doing those this week probably! He also took picture of a giant pumpking, a giant watermelon, rabbits and roosters. His favorite is the pig races. He cracks me up. The highlight of the pig races. The little swimming pig, who took a wee piggy poo-poo before diving off his little piggy platform! Ah yes, caught by dh with my camera!

Love the kit! It looks very versatile! I don't let my husband have access to the camera long enough to have any pictures of me laying around!!

Both are great and yes, it is wonderful that you can use them for other subjects/themes apart from Halloween.
