The Retweetables: Halloween Edition

Meet my serial killer daughter. Three years ago, my sweet little four-year-old wanted to dress up as Scream and I let her. Afterall, she refused to look at other costumes and insisted on this one. So, I HAD to make a scrapbook page. (I totally scraplifted the layout from a book I read in 2007. I wish I could remember which one, but that was three years ago and I didn't keep track of things like I do now. If you've seen a layout like this and know who created it, please let me know.)

Note: After showing my daughter (now 7) my last blog post, Mix a little gore with a few screams, add a dash of sparkle and you have a scrapbook layout, she confessed that she didn't know that Scream was a serial killer. She thought that he just chased people around to scare them.
