Scrap Booking Layout Class - Oscar - Stampin' Up!

Love this layout, highlights Oscar playing on the walking (well I don't use it). These are 2 single layouts, using many different stamps to gain the background. I also incorporated the words in the framelits to create the word I wanted by cutting the words up.
Collage of stamps makes for great backgounds. 

Stamps used in the above layout where many different designs.
 This set is not only for Halloween, you  can use this set for many different ideas.
 This set is under rated. One I didnt think I would use a lot but have used it on many layouts and cards. It is solid and outline of the alphabet, value for money.
 All I can say about this set is its a must have set.
 Another set that you can get so much out of. These sets can be used time and time again, and thats what you want.
 This set is a great way to know when and where events happened when scraping your memories. 
Card Stock - 12  x  12  Whisper White, scraps of Designer Series Paper to suit your photo.
                       Scraps of Whisper White for framelit cut outs and stamp of words. Basic Black for the
