Happy Halloween Layout 

Welcome!   Creating costumes is great family fun! When my children were growing up, we thoroughly enjoyed coming up with costume 'themes!'  From 101 Dalmatians to The Wizard of Oz, creating costumes really got the creative juices flowing!   Lots of good family fun!

Since this was before the 'smart phone' we would typically snap just one or two photos of my children with their cousins all dressed in character of that year's theme.  Such delightful memories! πŸ˜Š  Of course, we're talking film on a roll, that needed to be completely used prior to having developed.  

If you have any such photos hanging out in a box or two, it's not to late to make scrapbook pages for them!  Pocket pages would take care of this in a snap!  πŸ˜‰ Whether prints are recent or a decade (or more--lol!) old, make sure to jot your journaling to tell your story!  πŸ’–

Now we have the opportunity to click away at a moment's notice with our phones and digital cameras.  Let's be sure to print some of these captured moments and preserve them in our scrapbooks!  You took the pictures for a reason, right?

This year my husband and I are blessed to have the opportunity to walk along with our young grandchildren as they continue the themed Halloween fun. πŸ’Woo Hoo!  My pages are ready for photos of them!  They are created with the Hello Pumpkin Creative Collection.  It is such a joy to work (play) with quality and versatile materials!  

Note that most of the papers are  not Halloween specific patterns -- I love this! 😊 This collection will retire at the close of the year, and is available while supplies last, so now is the time to get yours!

Our title is a design included in and cut using the Artbooking Cricut Collection.  Such fun fonts!

This accent block is built with Hello Pumpkin papers and Foam Dots.  Easy peasy!  

Gold Shimmer Brush is swept over the two layered pumpkins to give them just a glistening touch!  😊  They are made using the You Are Here Cricut Collection.   I glued them together using the Bonding Memories Dual Action Glue Pen. 

After my photos are in place, I'll decide whether or not to incorporate a few additional embellishments.  Hello Pumpkin Complements and Shapes are ready for this task!  

For inspiration to create this layout, I simply opened my Make It From Your Heart, Vol. 3 to a random page. πŸ˜‰ Pattern 9 was the winner!  I did make a few alternations to the original pattern, but you wouldn't need to do this.  

Using the Hello Pumpkin Creative Collection, I also made these cute little treat bags.  

Your creative possibilities are endless!  Enjoy!  

Thank you so much for visiting!  YOU are appreciated!  

I enjoy hearing from you and appreciate your business and support.  I look forward to helping you as you travel along life's journey celebrating relationships with all of YOUR papercrafting and memory keeping needs.  πŸ’–

Have a wonderful day!

Happy Papercrafting,

Without love, deeds, even the most brilliant, count as nothing.
