BEWARE (1987)!! SOUS Halloween/Fall Sketch Challenge

Hi everyone!! Happy Friday!!  Boy do we have a FUN sketch challenge over at Stuck On U Sketches!!  This week we have a 2 pager with a theme of Halloween/Fall..  Here is the sketch, and as you can see, plenty of space for your photos and embellishments!
Now, I know the sketch has four photos, but I chose to use just two. Mainly because that's all I had of the kids this year at Halloween..  Remember, you don't have to follow the sketch exactly,  just as long as you get your inspiration from it..   So, with that said, here's my take on it..

 I had a blast with this one. The photos are of my children on Halloween, 1987.  Levi was 7 and Amanda was 5, this was taken when we lived in Alamogordo, NM.  Don't they look scary???  This was not my daughter's favorite mask and she still tells me she needed therapy after wearing it...   I can't wait for her to see this...LOL

Here are the individual pages... You can click on the photo to enlarge it..

This is really wonderful! Love the vintage Orange and Black color scheme, lately purple has been creeping in as a Halloween color, but I am still old school. Orange and Black all the way.
