Bates Motel

The photo of the layout is a bit blurry, but I love the moodiness of this one.  During HHNs at Universal, the tram ride drops you off and you get to walk around and really see the Bates Motel.  Ben and I even had our photo take there.  I think was actually Scott's photo, maybe mine.  We both took one and played with them to get the right amount of light/dark on it.

I used a Scrap our Stash sketch and lots of scraps and older stuff -- the embellishment borders are K&Co from years ago, the ravens are from Recollections (I think) and the cut border was from a CK swap several years ago, the fussy cut tree branch/bird is from DCWV.   The background is Recollections -- it's a really textured, corrugated feel  paper.  The pp is all DCWV, I believe, from a variety of pads -- a fall pad, the grunge stack (don't remember the exact name -- I've only got scraps left), and a Christmas stack (the green, again, I don't remember which one). The title pic is one I pulled off the internet.
