Trunk or Treat

I have a confession: I am not a fan of Halloween. I don't hate it.
It's alright but I am pretty indifferent about it most of the time.
Other than the candy, there's not much else about the holiday that excites me.
Christmas, on the other hand, I LOVE.
I have found that most people usually prefer one over the other - it's a rare breed that likes both equally. That being said, I don't much enjoy scrapping about it Hallowe'en either. I find the orange/green/purple colour scheme to be ho-hum.
BUT imagine my delight when I spied aqua, orange, grey and brown in this kit!!
Aqua is just one of those colors that seems to look great with any other color and grey is my new go-to neutral. I really loved the little nostalgic bits from the OA Witchhazel line in this kit as well.
SO, if I HAVE to scrap H-ween pages, I love having a pretty kit to do it with :)
And a cute little boy in a Spidey costume helps as well.
These pics are from the Trunk or Treat festivities that were held at my son's school. The 2 boys had a ball checking out their friends' costumes and running from car to car for candy.
**please pardon the blurred out face of my little guy's buddy, I don't have permission to post his photo.

I am in love with the tone on tone trend lately. It is a great way to add visual interest to your page without making it look too cluttered or bulky. I find myself coming back to this technique time and again.

I have a few more projects to share in the coming days.
Thanks for stopping by & Happy Wednesday!
