Halloween Treat

I love this time of year. I love Halloween! I don't know why but it is one of my favorite holidays. I love getting dressed up. I love getting the kids dressed up. I love going Trick~or~treating, I mean taking the kids Trick~or~Treating, and I love doing our Halloween dinner at my mom's house. She goes all out. It's never just your normal dinner. It has to be, Bat wings and human fingers (chicken wings and cream cheese roll ups) I just love it! Oh and the weather at night is finally starting to get cooler. Thank goodness because I am sick of these hot days.
One of my goals for October was to be more crafty. My SIL, Ambrosia & I had decided to do a project a week. Well....let's just say that I am about a week behind, but hey things come up and I do have a newborn. Anyways......I FINALLY finished our project. We decided that we were each going to do a mini~album. It could be anything we wanted. Any theme as long as it was an album. I have never attempted this before and here is Ambrosia being the pro that she is knocked hers out and showed me what I was up against. :) Great! What was I to do????? anyone in there? (me knocking on me own head) THUNK! THUNK! Then it came to me.....I was going to do a Halloween Album.
For my first attempt. I went back and forth and being the perfectionist that I am when it comes to scrapbooking I was having a difficult time. Then throw in the factor of not having pictures made it even harder for me. I had all my stuff all over the floor and I was trying to find just the right touches. I thought I had a lot of Halloween embelishments, but after doing this I found out I really do not. Means I need to buy more! ;)

My mess on the floor

I continued on thru my issues and finally finished my album. 2 weeks later but hey I got it done. Here it is!

Just so you all know, I was having issues with the cover. I wanted a title but didn't know what to do. I was starting to get fed up when JL said to me, "I want to help", and then this is what I came up with. JL is learning to write his letters so I let him write "Halloween 2010". This album means more to me since he had something to do with it and I can cherish what his handwriting looks like at the age of 4.

Now that it is complete I can't wait to put the pictures in it from this year's Halloween. I don't think I did too bad of a job for my first try.

Now the question to my few followers is.........WHAT SHOULD MY NEXT PROJECT BE OR THEME FOR MY NEXT ALBUM BE?



  1. I am completely IN LOVE with this book! You did an AWESOME job friend!! Now I dont even like mine! I love having JL write on the cover. Its genius =] GREAT SUPER FANTASTIC JOB!!!!! Yay!!!!!

  2. Your pages are seriously awesome. Professional looking even! Ahhhhh, I feel like a proud mama bird <3

  3. Oh please....I wouldn't go that far! I have to admit it was fun though. Every once in awhile I like all my scrapbookin' supplies all over the place.

  4. I say Banners are in order... Fun Holiday one for a fireplace mantel! Then you can send it to me! Your book is SUPER cute! Great Job... you even antiqued the edges! (I noticed cause I do that too!) LOL
