A couple more

I've got a couple more layouts to share -- again for a smattering of challenges.  This first is from our Spring Break trip to Disneyland -- the Haunted Mansion.  I love the architecture and all the details from this attraction.  My title comes from the song the "heads" sing in the graveyard scene "Grim Grinning Ghosts" -- and I'm had it swimming around in my head for days. (When you hear the knell of a requiem bell, Weird glows gleam where spirits dwell, Happy haunts materialize, They begin to harmonize...Grim, grinning ghosts come out to socialize....)

For this one, I used the May Stack-a-holic sketch from DCWV:

I only had one photo and I turned the bulk of the sketch on it's side.  But -- it's where I started :-)
I used some old papers -- the background is one page from the Heirloom Stack, then I did some fussy cutting of another  page for the "banner" at the top and the photo mat.

The next layout is different for me -- pastel!  I do so much with deeper, richer colors; but there were several challenges that all came together in this one:

Still more pictures from Disneyland -- Toon Town this time.  I think I'll still add some journaling strips to the left bottom, but not sure.  This is from a sketch at Let's Scrap:


Challenge 162 for this week is to use pastels and a stamped image (by birds and their motor home on the left page).  Also at Love to Scrap!Challenges you had to choose either pastels or primaries and add your stamped image (always a stamped image).  Since I needed an embellie, I turned to buttons, thanks to Child's Play Challenges.
