Pinterest Monday with Brittany & Leanne

It's Halloween week...EEK!  I thought I would share some of the layouts I have made using the Blackbird kit and Add-On and the coordinating stamp set.  And both layouts are not about my daughter.  You can really scrap about anything, and wanted to do just that with these layouts.
