Halloween is a great time for taking photos. Everywhere you look there are fun costumes to behold, festive decorations to see, parties being celebrated and big bowls of candy to be shared and enjoyed. Halloween photos are so much fun! Why not bring your favorite photos to life with a beautiful layout featuring Place in Time and Steampunk Spells! Here is Maria's wonderfully festive LO that's just perfect for this fun holiday. Here Maria explains how she created this beautiful work of art! Get inspired to create one of your very own this Halloween!

"I love Graphic 45’s Place In Time paper line! It is so much fun to create with, and even more fun when you mix and match it with other paper lines! This layout started out as mostly a Place In Time and Steampunk Spells blend, but something was missing. I suddenly remembered the Checkers paper from my Mother Goose collection. This black and white check pattern is really adorable and playful, and works great as a border for your Halloween layouts! I used part of this paper for my border, and then ended up using the rest of the paper for my large photo mat area. This mixed and matched Place In Time layout would make a great layout for your little one’s first Halloween costume, or even a photo of some spooky storytelling!" -Maria
