Journaling reads:
OK -- I admit it: My husband and I have a very macabre hobby...we love to visit cemeteries; haunted restaurants; abandoned buildings and go ghost-hunting. I will always remember our visit to Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia...what a nightmare it must have been to have been an inmate here. The penal philosophy of that time was that prisoners would see the error of his or her ways; if they had spare; solitary confinement in which to reflect on their crimes. We spent many hours here; exploring on our own time. Eastern State is definitely one of the most spooky and creepy places we've ever been.

    Very interesting journaling. I love the blended photo and the skeletons. Lovely and scary looking layout.
    I love this layout Jennifer! I really like how you created the background with your photo and I think the skeleton is the perfect touch. Love your journaling and use of word art. It sounds like a fascinating place to visit. If I ever get out to Philly I'll have to remember to check it out. Great page!
    Clever clever clever! Love the use of your word art inside your journaling.
    I absolutely love this. I too love visiting cemeteries and have belonged to a ghost hunting group when I lived in Los Angeles. When I'm on vacation and we pass a cemetery, I always have to stop and 'visit'. I visited 'Alcatraz' when I was in San Francisco quite a few years ago. Now that was very eery and filled with ghostly beings.

    This kit is perfect for your photo and I love how you blended it into the background. Love the frame, as I'm a nut for frames, that you used. It's just perfect for your photo. Love the skeleton and the blood splattered spider web.
    Awesome LO! The blending is incredible and your journaling is excellent. I especially like the word emphasis. If you ever get a chance you should visit the old WV State Penitentiary in Moundsville, WV. They have ghost tours there every year in October. I understand it is done very well.
    That does look like a spooky place. Great Halloween layout. I like the way you've blended the hallway into the background.
    Oh my, this is spooky. I love the blending and the journaling.
    I can feel chills run up my spine. Great layout.
