You can also a number of small 2x3 sized Autumnal photos in the interactive hidden area of the layout. Even if you don't have the right photos don't worry - you can complete your layouts and then go home and take Halloween photos at your own halloween parties.

It's a double page layout with more than a hint of sparkle! You'll need to bring along a minimum of three portrait format 5" x 7" photos printed with a white border (my photos measure 5" x 7" including the border), but bring along as many as you have. They can be Autumn or Halloween themed as the papers and diecuts would suit either.
