If It's Groovy Calendar Blog Hop

Today the TrueXOXO team has joined forces with If It's Groovy in a calendar blog hop. Each team member has created a layout for a specific month. I chose October since I had many opportunities to shoot photos of Riley.

I went really simple on this layout. I diecut the border from a printed piece of Halloween themed cardstock using the Pazzles.Then I sprayed adhesive on the entire frame and sprinkled Glitter Ritz on the entire piece. Although it has color, it is somewhat transparent. A few distressed rectangles later and some dew drops, I was done. Even though this layout is not in my usual over-embellishing style, it took me about the same amount of time creating this layout because of the glitter. It's a shame that glitter doesn't show well on a computer becasue just about every element sparkles.

By the way, I created the spider dress, headpiece and makeup Riley is wearing. What more could a girl want than a dress that is metallic purple!

Well I hope I captured the essence of October in my layout. Please stop by the other sites of my fellow XOXO girls and If It's Groovy team.

I just can't get enough of this kid! I've seen this page a zillion times and I never get tired of it. I think it was a great idea to keep the page simple since she had so much goin' on (and she did it so well). You always know!

Loooove it! In this case, simple = spectacular! The purple and black...the spiders....love it all!

This layout is wonderful! I love the coloring and glitter and the spiders are a great touch. My favorite (besides the darling picture of you DD in that amazing costume) is the single spider hanging from the web. Love your blog too, so I became a follower.
