A little later then anticipated.... Halloween Layout

Halloween 2011 -
If you are anything like me, you try to be prepared, or ready for the season, but fall short sometimes. I know it's way past Halloween, but here is the layout I was gonna post. Sometimes the time I have does not allow for me to do what I want, especially when my kids are involved. What I mean is, when they come home from school, all bets are off, time flies, and I can't get it back.

For this layout, mostly I used the Slice machine. I made the chandelier, fence frame and awesome scroll with it. The "Trick or Treat" sticker is an epoxy sticker from that sheet I used for the Haunted House books, by Creative Imaginations. I absolutely love them. The flower is Spare Parts and the papers, are what is left over from that My Mind's Eye "The Spider's Web".

I like how the layout turned out, except, I really would have liked to do black and white photos, these photos are very bright and colorful, taking away from the pretty layout. But in order to see the greatness of my daughter's costume, I couldn't do that. In black and white, the full effect would have been lost. And my son's scariness, as a scarecrow, would have not prevailed.

Anyway, a day late, a dollar short, here is my Halloween layout. If interested check back way after Thanksgiving, for that layout. HA!

What are you thankful for?

Happy November everyone. We fell back in time yesterday and now I feel like I am all messed up. I know I didn't get that Halloween layout up here. I wanted too, but I haven't finished it yet. Things around here got really busy and haven't stopped.

But some good news, I finally got a photo printer again, one that will print large format also. I am so happy. It's been like a year now, that I have gone without. I have so many layouts that are waiting for photos. I just hate spending money on stuff like that when I had one that worked perfectly, then one day just stopped printing. It ran like it was printing, used ink like it was printing, but the pages were always blank. Anyway! Enough of that.

So, hopefully I will be more motivated to scrapbook.

Thanksgiving is coming soon. So I thought it would be nice to post a comment about what you are thankful for. Please post away!!

What am I thankful for? I am thankful for my family and friends. Without them, it wouldn't matter what I do, who I am, or how much I accomplish, they are truly the most wonderful thing about my life.

Have a very blessed day.
