12 Tags of 2012 - October

I know, I's Tim's October tag but I've done enough fall and Halloween stuff at the moment and the 'Noel' die just screamed at me to use it.  My layout follows Tim's but theme and colors are not.

My Glossy Accents wasn't as wet as it could have been so my newly created Meadow glitter didn't stick very well.  But I actually like this look and chose to accentuate the grunginess by adding some Aged Mahogany Distress Stickles in the bare spots.  From my trash bin I found the word 'Joy' that had been stamped in a red color...this fit perfectly behind the 'Merry Christmas' ticket.
