Monday Challenge - Guy Fawkes: "The Cowardly Lion Goes Trick-or-Treating in NYC

Thanks for the fun and most interesting challenge, Valerie!
My outdoor celebration doesn't include bonfires but it DOES include spooks! I started this page before the hurricane and with days of power loss couldn't finish. I took the full moon photo on Sept 15 and my godson Chris sent me the photo of the Empire State Building lit up in red, white and blue on Sept 11, 2012.
Since most Trick-or-Treating/Halloween has been postponed or cancelled around here, I'm not sure the Lion got any candy in his bag. :(
Anyone familiar with "The Wizard of Oz" movie will recognize his words: "I do believe in spooks, I do believe in spooks. I do, I do, I do, I do believe in spooks, I do believe in spooks, I do, I do, I do, I do!"
For this layout I used:
SG Storyteller Collection
ACA Iridescence Collection Biggie
BMU Dynamic Brush Set: Background blenders
SNU Brush Set: Painted
BMU Dynamic Brush Set: Twinkling
BMU Beautiful Black Paper
MRE SS Tools - Styles: Star Bright 5001
SNU Oz Collection Mini
SG LD Slender Font
SBD Grimm Collection



    Love your photos, and all the spooks of course (I do believe in spooks, I do, I do). Thanks for joining the challenge.
    Great page! I love the bits of light from the buildings and the moon -- they make the spooks even spookier! It's great how you put it all together! I sure hope the Cowardly Lion got some candy. :D
    I do! I do! I do recognize that! Super fun layout, Marilyn! Love your background spook and the Empire State Building photo! Awesome!
    What a fun and creative page!! I love all the spooks flying around that wonderfully lit Empire State Building.. Your grungy scratches add to that perfectly... And the Lion is adorable :-)
    Ooooh! Spooky! I love how you've turned your moon photo and the Empire State into a fantasy piece.
    Really neat the way you put all the different images together in a coherent manner. Very spooky, but the lion adds just the right amount of whimsy. Love it!
    How fun and scary.... Little lion trick-or-treating in the big scary city! Love all of your scary pooky creatures and escpecially how you created the shiney moon!
    Great page - what a nice sad lion...
    A fun and artistic layout. Great moon!:)
