My snowmen are STILL standing in the front yard! While we've been home, I've stayed pretty busy with the boys. We watched a lot of movies together, played some checkers - just had fun! I did spend a little time in my scrap area though.
I was back in my Halloween-scrapping mode...
I also scrapped a LO for Blake's album using family shots from this past Halloween.
For Blake, I also scrapped shots of the boys at home before we left to go trick or treating. I was inspired by a LO on Alison Davis' blog. "We want Candy" was inspired by a sketch posted by Lisa Hidy on her blog. It was a single page sketch, but I stretched it out into a 2-pager and used American Crafts products.
I continued using the American Crafts products on Kevin's layout showcasing the family costumes on Halloween. That's my next-to-youngest sister Kaitlin in the center dressed at Tranformer's Megatron. She's 21!Today I scraplifted a LO by Roree Rumph in the February issue of Scrapbook Trends magazine. I used some Scenic Route Cape Town papers that a friend sent me. Scenic Route never goes out of style. (Have I mentioned how much I'll miss them?!?) I got crafty with my paints and glimmer mists. The tag was a BRIGHT yellow, but I used Tattered Leather glimmer mist. It was too dark, so I wiped it off and it left a wood-grain look. I thought it was pretty cool ;) The red in the chipboard stars and on the tag was from Candy Apple Red Glimmer Mist. I now have more colors on my wish list!I have one more Halloween layout to share, but I scrapped it with Valentine's Day products since Reese, my niece, was a too cute pink monster.I was actually able to visit with Reese twice over the past week. She's really grown since October, hasn't she? She's a mess!
Now, I'm trying to work in some crop time. Personal Scrapper is having a mini online crop that started last night.
I'm actually hoping we are back to school tomorrow! I think the boys are ready for it, too.
