Cricut Circle Blogiversary - Cuttlebug Challenge

I am entering another one of the Cricut Circle Blogiversary challenges...this time featuring the Cuttlebug and any two Cricut image cuts.  The prize is a Yudu Cardshop which is a mini version of the Yudu silkscreening machine and great for making cards and smaller projects.  My fingers and toes are crossed that my entry gets picked.  

I am really getting excited about Halloween this year and decided for this challenge I wanted to make a Halloween Layout page.  Cricut has several Halloween images and cartridges that I love so the decision on what to use was hard but I finally came up with a few fun images to use.

Here is the layout
I had so much fun making this layout from my stash of supplies. 

Since I first saw this silly looking Spider with the long legs from the Stretch Your Imaginations cartridge, I have wanted to use him on a project but hadn't gotten around to it until today.  I cut him out of black cardstock and then  used Ranger Paint Dauber in yellow to color his legs.  I used a black sharpie and added some stripes to make his long legs a little more comical.  Next I used a small dot Cuttlebug embossing folder to add some fun bumps to his body and highlighted a few of his bumps with green Stickles and some orange Stickles to his hat. He was just screaming that he needed googlie eyes so he got those too!  

Next I made a mat using my Cuttlebug and a Halloween embossing folder on some orange Coordinations cardstock which I then sanded to expose all the fun embossed images.  I love to do that with my Cuttlebug folders!
For the lettering I used the awesome Happy Hauntings cartridge for the "Spooky" title and the EEK! on the layout.  I also used Accent Essentials cartridge to create the circle backgrounds for the punched out pattern paper pieces that I used to make embellishments. I added a few Dress Up Buttons Halloween pieces for a final touch.  Love how this turned out.  And now I have one layout ready for some Trick or Treating photos this year!   
Good luck to everyone who enters the contest !
