Cancion de Halloween en Puerto Rico

Cuando llega el mes de octubre,

corro al huerto de mi casa,

y busco con alegría,

tres o cuatro calabazas.

Las preparo, las arreglo,

saco todas las semillas.

Le hago unos ojos grandes,

y una boca que da risa.

Mucho, mucho, me divierto,

con todas mis calabazas.

Y a todos mis amiguitos,

invito a jugar a casa

CJ Too's Design Team- Designers Choice

This Layout is an inspiration from
Brito Romero
in this ocassion my purse

hot pink

I cut from
Accent Essential: swirl at 2.29
flower (various colores) 6 for each petal and embossed each on with various folders
un petal of each color
the shadow is in black @ 3.24
The hearts are from Simply Sweet @3.5 and 2.5

heart blocks
bloom dots
argoley dots diamond
Base is  12x12 black cardstock
I cut down at 11 x11 four cardstock ( yellow, turquoise, hot pink,)
The first cut is random at an angle then the rest are marked and cut 1/2 inch smaller
the cuts are made so that there is a 1/2 inch black border between each cardstock and
trying to maintain an 11 x 11 square visual (it sounds complicated but not really if you know how
to use your trimmer)
I decorated each background with either 1/2 inch strips of coordinating cardstock
1 inch circles, the swirls cut earlier and a small flower punch
Then I mounted my flowers and hearts and voiala
I love how it came out
