Scrapbook layout put together with inspiration from Challenge 141 from Color Stories Inspiration and Sketchabilities.

This photo was taken at Alton Towers on the Haunted House ride in 1995.  I just recently rediscovered it and had a good laugh at my face.  At the point the photo was taken a huge spider dropped down from the ceiling which is why I look so scared, strangly my husband looks quite amused!

Journalling Reads: 14th Sept 1995 - We got tickets for Alton Towers, so with Jason at school we headed off to have lots fun on all of the rides.

We hopped into the 'Haunted House' car and set off through the house. The main thing I remember was the absolutely 'HUGE' spider that dropped down from the ceiling (which is when this photo was taken) hence the very scared look on my face and the amused look on my husband Pauls face. Such a fun day.

 This is the colour challenge I used

I used all the colours in the scheme 
For the evidence I used: Cogs/Gears, Lots of Layers, Something Unexpected (postcard)

Testimony: Tuck your story between layers

I also used this fantastic sketch
124 from Sketchabilities 

I used white tulle to give the illusion of spider web which I tore and stretched and I decided to use cardboard which I cut into letters for the title and then 'spooked them up' a bit by adding green and orange liquid pearls.

Thanks for taking the time to look at my blog.

I would love it if you would like to do one or more of the following
