Halloween is almost here again. My kids have been counting down the days for weeks, and weeks now. Noah asks every day, How many days until Halloween Mom ? It has been a good math opportunity for me to squeeze in every day. For instance today he asked and I said well 31 - 19 is what. The answer is how many days left to Halloween.
Okay enough subtraction problems, let's get on to the fun stuff.
I have a fun Halloween spread for you today. This is the first project that I have done for Color Cast Designs Design Team. I am so happy to be with them and use their products. Side note : Today is the Release Day for October. Wow, you guys. Don't miss this one. It is HUGE !! It includes Halloween, through Christmas and everything in between. Click here to go check out the shop.
The set that I used for these pages is called Wicked Awesome. It has both some wood pieces as well as some acrylic pieces. I am so in love with these cute little ghosts and pumpkins that are in the set.
I adore these cute journaling cards from Amber LaBau. You can find her stuff over at The Lily Pad shop. They were perfect for my Halloween photos from last year. I added one of the pumpkins from the set, aren't they sooo cute !
This spread came together rather quickly. I decided to keep it rather simple with lots of white throughout the whole thing.
This first journaling card is from Ali Edwards, maybe the Week In The Life kit.
There was no surprise when Katelyn decided to dress up as Harry Potter for Halloween. We were very lucky to find the robe at a local thrift store and bought the rest at the party store.
This ghost card is one that I made myself in photoshop. I used the ghost from Amber as well and then stamped BOO onto the card. Then I added the ghost from Color Cast Designs. I am in love with those darling little ghosts.
Halloween would not be complete without consuming at least a half a dozen Reese's Pumpkins.
This card started out with a journaling card from the Amber set. I added the two small 2x2 photos and added them together so I could add the cute wood tag. The tag is from the Color Cast set as well.
Noah makes a very convincing Darth Vader.
Let's move on to the right side.
I added this white acrylic piece from the set onto this great yellow card. Next to it I added a few more photos of Katelyn.
I added this big journaling card in because I had some stories to tell from that night. For instance, " Noah, you can't do that. You have a lightsaber, not a wand like me. It won't work. " The cute fox sticker if from the Hello Fall collection from Simple Stories. It was the perfect addition.
My cute little fox.
I haven't mentioned this yet. Before the kids went out trick or treating we took some photos of them in their costumes. Some of my favorites were of these two battling each other. I had a series of 3 photos that I wanted to use together. I added them all the way down the right side of this right page. I added the numbers to the photos to draw your eye to them and show them in order.
This second photo I cropped that it was smaller than 4x6. I had to cut it up to fit into the 3x4 pockets which turned out fine. I added the smaller side of the photo to this journaling card that I embellished.
Here is the last photo. I just love these.
Here is what they look like all together.
I am so happy to have these fun photos documented now and in my album. Thanks for coming everyone ! We are hosting a Halloween Party this weekend so I will check back in early next week most likely.
