Indiana Jones & Harry Potter

I'm just plugging away at LOs here. It's felt SO nice to sit down and scrap. I've really missed it. These two LOs are from Halloween pictures from this year...can you believe it? I'm still way behind but I like doing up-to-date photos. LOL The boys picked awesome costumes this year. Max was Indiana Jones and Evan was Harry Potter. They both looked fabulous!

For Max's LO, I used background paper from the DCWV Once Upon a Time stack. It kinda looks like an old crumpled up piece of paper or treasure map...perfect for this page. I printed Max's pic in sepia tones to go with the overall LO. I used my Cricut for all the cuts. I used Printing 101 for the title. I looked online at the IJ logo and copied it by making each letter smaller and curving it a bit. I cut it in yellow cardstock and then chalked it in to fade from yellow to orange to red. I love how it turned out. I used Paper Doll Dress Up for the hat and October 31st for the giant spider. Max's costume had a huge spider printed on the back shoulder!For Evan's LO, I used the new line of Harry Potter paper by Creative Imaginations. The whole line is SO cool and I was lucky enough to grab up a bunch at an Archiver's in Louisville!! I printed Evan's pic in sepia tones too to go with the overall LO. I used Black Letter and Robotz for the title. Black Letter was almost a perfect match to the HP logo but I had to weld on some lightning bolt shapes from Robotz to the P and I had to create the H from scratch. The uppercase H on Black Letter was nothing like the HP H. I welded some I's together and a swirl from the cart and it made an almost perfect HP H. I used Camp out for Hedwig. I think she turned out pretty good. TFL
