Skinny book page

Are you like me? I always buy scrapbook papers when they are on sale. I think I have enough scrapbook papers to last me 3 lifetimes. The upside of this is that I can almost always find some papers that will work with the colors I have chosen or the papers will spark an idea or maybe nudge my idea into a different direction. This skinny book page has a "cute" Halloween theme. I really don't do cute. This isn't scary, so I think this will do. I bought the paper doll collage sheet and label collage sheet on Etsy. Purple. I started going through my scrapbook papers and sure enough, I found some that were perfect. If I didn't buy scrapbook papers all the time, well, I'd be in trouble! (My fall back, all purpose background that almost works for everything is vintage book pages.) I got this far on this page and was trying to come up with other stuff that I could add. I finally decided that less is more. I think this design is good without adding lace or buttons or ribbon or something else. I'll work on the back of this page later on in the week. It will feature another paper doll witch, this one in a black ball gown.
