Boo - The Paper Mixing Bowl October 2012 Recipe Challenge

Well, I'm a little late posting this - but here is my layout for this month's challenge at The Paper Mixing Bowl. This month's recipe is "Pumpkin Pie" with some fun, Halloween-inspired design elements! For my layout, I have scrapped a picture I captured of my son on his first Halloween. Note: I did not scare him to get him to make the expression on his face - it was just a lucky picture of a funny face! Anyhow, here is my layout and the Recipe Card for this month's challenge.
I used a combination of Echo Park "Chillingsworth Manor" and My Mind's Eye "The Spider's Web" papers for the layout. For the "utensils" (i.e. design elements), I fussy-cut the pumpkins from a sheet of the MME paper, used some spider's web and plastic spider Halloween decorations and cut/distressed some cat scratches into the layout. Here is a close-up of the photo/embellishment cluster from the top left of the layout.
For my journalling, I (obviously) used Halloween as the inspiration and simply wrote on a ticket cut from one of the "Chillingsworth Manor" papers. 
That's it for tonight's post - I hope you'll pop over to The Paper Mixing Bowl Blog and play along with this month's challenge!
