Cricut Circle Create A Scene Challenge

For the Circle Monthly Challenge, I created the following 2 page layout.

Here is page 1.

Here is page 2.

The cardstock used for the background is from The Paper Loft's Halloween Distressed Cardstock Scary line - Hocus Pocus.  All other cardstock is Bazzill that I've had in my stash.  All of the cuts are from the Happy Hauntings Cricut cartridge, and I used my E2 and Gypsy to make them.

For the title, I used the Phrase function for Halloween (the phrase was actually Happy Halloween, but I used Hide & Contour to hide Happy) and cut it at a height of 2 inches, and used the Vampire Font function to cut 2003 at a height of 3/4 of an inch.  I didn't take a picture of my screen or mat with the paper laid out for this.

The Witch was cut at a height of 3 inches and the Bat was cut at a height of 1 3/4 inches.  Here is a picture of my Gypsy screen and mat with the paper laid out on it.

The Haunted House was cut at a height of 6 inches.  Here are the picture of my Gypsy screen and mat.

The Ghosts were cut at a height of 2 inches.  Here are pictures of how the cuts were laid out on my Gypsy and mat.

The Spooky Tree was cut at a height of 6 inches, and here are pictures of my Gypsy screen and mat.

The Vampire and Skeleton were both cut at a height of 3 inches.  Here are the screen and mat pictures.

Frankenstein and the Bride of Frankenstein were cut at a height of 3 inches, and here are the pics of the screen and mat.

The Mummy was cut at a height of 3 inches and the Cat was cut at a height of 1 3/4 inches.  Here are the screen and mat pics.

This was a fun layout to make, even though it took me about 5 1/2 hours to complete.  The little pieces were hard to work with, especially all the little bones of the Skeleton!  At least I was able to get a layout done of one of my son's elemetary school parties.
