I have finally got round to adding the 1st entries to my challenge this month ... I look forward to seeing some more soon! xx

"In for a Scare" Ghosts of Halloween by Frances

This is Frances 2nd entry to my Challenge - The Ghosts of Halloween! This is a great layout and wonderful how Frances has taken a non Disney Halloween Paper but made it very "disneyfied!" ( if that is a word!) with Little embellishments and more. I love the wonderful photos and take a look at one of the gravestones along the bottom!! The little ghosts floating around add to this spookiness!! Thank You and Good Luck xx

"In for a Scare" The Batty Villains of Disney by Frances

This is France's 1st entry to my challenge, The Batty Villains of Disney! of her Niece at Disney in 2006. I love this layout! The children look great dressed up in their Halloween Costumes with the spooky Villains! This is Frances 1st attempt at Scrapbooking but you wouldnt guess it would you? They are much better than my 1st attempt! I love the way that the bat has been created and Frances has used Mickey edges scissors for around the outside. It is a lovely example of how you can scrap Disney Halloween photos without using Disney papers, but Disney embellishments. Thank You and Good Luck xx

"In for a Scare" Chicken by Kirsteen

This is Kirsteen's 2nd entry to my challenge - Chicken! Who Me?! This is what Kirsteen has to say about this layout: "I had just agreed to ride The Tower of Terror with my BIL even though I didn't want to ride it! Then a huge downpour came and we never got a chance to ride TOT - I left the park a very happy camper and no one suspected that I was too chicken to ride" The background colour really reflects the weather and the scariness of the ride, but I love the palm trees which give it that hollywood feel and also the green bling around the edge too! I too am too chicken and have never made it past the elevators!!! Thank You and Good Luck xx

"In for a Scare" Jaws by Kirsteen!

This is Kirsteens 1st entry to my "In for a Scare" Challenge: Jaws!! Everyone who goes to Universal Studios I think has this obligatory Jaws photo!! ( we are no exception!) I love the bright colours for this layout and the wavy patterend paper with the beautiful flower! Love the journalling too, but Kirsteen is like me and hates pyrotechnics, so I am tooo scared to go on this one again! how about you??? Thank You and Good Luck xxx

And the Winner is ...

Debra with her stunning entry "The Magic of Spectromagic" which can be seen below! Thank You so much everyone who entered, I really enjoyed seeing all your layouts again and it was such a hard decision choosing a winner. I have set the new challenge "In for a Scare" more details are on my website, I have nearly finished my new website but have been delayed a few days as my son had an operation yesterday so I have been looking after him as he has needed alot of TLC! But I am aiming for opening by the end of the week providing everything works ok when i switch the domains over! I have some entries for this months challenge which I have added this evening! Thank You, Jo xxx

"Magical" The Magic of Spectromagic by Debra

This is Debra's entry to my Challenge - The Magic of Spectromagic! What a stunning layout! The photos are pefect, I find it hard to get good photographs of evening parades like this but Debra's photos are just lovely! Having a very good spot just outside the Christmas Shop, Debra was able to take a picture of the castle all lit up with a view through the pretty flowers through Sleeping Beauty's Float! So the Castle is framed within the Flowers! Very Clever!! The black background is a perfect choice to show off these nightime photos, and I love the mount that Debra has used, which is tissue mounted on card and then sprayed with a beautiful shimmer mist! The bling and the flowers are so pretty, and cleverly cut on the cricut using scraperfoil board which is rainbow colours underneath and perfect for this. Everything blends in so well with this layout, it is sometimes hard to tell the embellishments from the photos! Thank You and Good Luck xxx

"Magical" Meeting Magical Fairies by Carole

This is Carole's entry to my challenge - Meeting Magical Fairies!! It is a beautiful layout in gorgeous Tinkerbell Colours! This is what Carole has to say about her layout: "This is a page from my 6 year old grandsons scrapbook which I have made following our 1st trip to Disney in May, although there is not much journalling on this page I think everyone can see the magical expression as he meets Tinkerbell and her friends. He truly believed in the magic of Disney and believed they were the real fairies and characters and I think the magic shows in these pictures, it is my absolute favourite" yes - I totally agree - the look on his little face is just priceless and it is lovely to capture this in a scrapbook layout - after all it is not just little girls who believe in Fairies!! I love the green sparkly background to the photos too which highlights the lovely green of Tinkerbells dress and the other sparkly embellishments too! Thank You and Good Luck xx

"Magical" - Magical Memories by Lynn

This is Lynn's entry to my Challenge "Magical Memories" Her and her cousins meeting Mickey Mouse! A lovely bright and colourful "Disney" colour layouts, I love the Mickey Paper and the black and white matting of the photos is very eyecatching, Lovely embellishments, and the whole gang in the middle brings it all together! Thank You and Good Luck xxx
