H2H Challenge ...Inspired by

Inspired by a book...

I have been driving myself crazy with this theme and then I had a breakthrough!  I have been working on a Halloween table runner all week and then I realized, was not use this book title as my inspiration?!

Inspired by the book "Wicked - The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West"

The book was originally published in September of 2007, but I did not start reading it until 2008.  It was a perfect read for an airplane trip to WNY and I became absorbed into the book throughout the entire flight.

I like to read the books before I see the movie or in this case, the play.  My friend Cherie and I went to the play in 2010 at the theater in Tampa and we both loved it!  Then Elizabeth and I went again in 2013 and we had great seats - front row balcony!

I created this layout using the remainder of my Scaredy Cat paper ( I guess I have to buy some more...) and a few pics from my October 2013 workshop.

The cuts are from the Cricut "Mini Monsters" cartridge and this is the first time I have actually used this cartridge.  Normally I use the CTMH cartridges but these images were perfect for this page!

I also created this broom card because this also fits perfectly with my book theme.

Colors used are thistle, pear, black, white daisy, honey, kraft and slate.  The stamp set is D1605 Halloween Greetings.  What a fun stamp set!

Come join us this week and show us your inspiration idea from a book!  You have until August 31st to participate in the August theme "Inspired by.."

Adeline, I love the colors of Scaredy Cat, and the green looks so good with them! You look marvelous in the photos - great layout. It's fun to be playing along with all of you at H2H this month.
