We are recovering from our sugar high – sleeping in a bit. The costumes are strewn in the corner of the livingroom and candy is abound. It was another fabulous Halloween to be remembered. Thanks you, neighbors for the boatload of candy and school friends/families and teachers for making great memories for my kiddos.
Luke was Luigi and Nicholas was the Red Power Ranger, Jayden. The temperature last night was cold – in the 30's. I wore snow pants, a hat, gloves, a super warm scarf, and had hand warmers in my pockets. My boys ran from house to house and didn't complain at all about being cold. In fact, Nick gave me his jacket because he was too warm!
This was Luke's last year (second grade) for dressing up and being in the "parade" (kids in K-2 walk the halls/classrooms to show off their fabulous creative costumes). So I made sure to be up there with my camera and capture a few photos. This is Luke at his desk peeking at me in the hallway waiting for the parade to begin. That expression definitely reassured me that he was glad I was one of the few parents that were there.
I'm gonna cherish this photo for many years to come. He even waved to me.
I'm looking forward to scrapbooking these memories.
Here are a set of pages I designed recently for my Scrappin' Sunday participants. I think this year's photos will work perfectly in this layout.
I used new stamp sets and designer papers from the Holiday Catalog. (See the product list below for the specific items I used to make this layout.)
- The squares are each 3-1/2" x 3-1/2".
- I embossed the monsters in white on black card stock, then colored them with Blendabilities markers.
- The birch tree designer paper piece is 2" x 12" and accented with a strip of Tangerine Tango (from the 12×12 brights pack of card stock) cut with the scallop rotary blade.
- And the eyes on the black background are stamped with white StazOn ink – a fabulous ink that dries quickly.
Now all I need to do is print and add my photos! Hoping you a Halloween to remember as well.
