Karen here today to share a little Halloween inspiration with this clever layout of my nephew. It's bright, fun, and every glorious detail complements the photo. Even if it's not Halloween, these little monsters are the cutest embellishments, especially for pages about your children. Let's take a look at how I did it.

Little Monster- Karen SessionsDirections:
1. Adhere the two main photos to the 8" paper and then matte it onto black cardstock. Use a shaped paper clip to attach a vertical strip of three mini photos to the upper right.

2. Next, attach two 2" paper stars to transparency and cut around them, leaving a .25" border of transparency. Embellish the transparent edge with dots using a black permanent marker. Add a large arrow under the main photo.

3. Use a permanent black marker to add dots and doodling around the edges of three 1.5" photos. Next, matte the three photos with coordinating cardstock and use a scalloped edge square punch to matte the other two small photos. Lastly, adhere the five small matted photos underneath the 8" square.

4. Finally, embellish the layout. Adhere Monster Puffy Stickers to the lower edge of the 8" photo square and add a sprinkling of stars, circles, shaped paper clips, buttons, and brads around the layout.

Supplies: Little Girl Paper Pad 8" (Paper House), Monsters Puffy Stickers (Paper House), Hocus Pocus 12" scrapbook paper (Doodlebug Design), star shaped paper clips, transparency, scalloped edge square paper punch (Marvy Uchida), permanent black marker, brads, buttons, shapes (stars, arrows, circles)

Photo Dimensions:
(1) 4" x 4"
(1) 4" x 5.5"
(3) 2" x 2"
(5) 1.5" x 1.5"

If you only have a single photo from a memorable day, print it out in different sizes. Also, crop just the face so that you will have a variety of images, even though there was only one photo taken.
