Happy Halloween!!!

Is everyone ready for some Halloween fun? I know that I sure am! I am looking forward to all the fun projects and pages that will be getting created in the days and weeks to come. Since my kids are all grown up now, I miss the fun in gathering items for making costumes and all the decisions that go along with that. I used to love planning out with the kids what they would like to be for Halloween and watching them come up with some great ideas for creating them. We never took money for all the fancier store bought costumes. Instead it was more fun to put on our creative thinking caps and seeing what we could come up with. Not only did they look great, but we made some great memories of the fun we had doing it.

Since the time has come for all ghouls and goblins to come out for trick or treating, I thought it would be fun to share a project I have been working on in honour of this fun day! It has been quite a while since I was able to sit and just create something fun and for ME, and I was beginning to think that it might never happen again! Alas, it did, and I had so much fun with this project. I can't wait to put all the finishing touches on it, but that is going to have to wait until the photos are printed and put in.

Once I have hunted down and reprinted the photos that I want for this album, I will be adding more ribbon and more detail to each of the pages. In most cases, the photos are going to need to be adhered before I can do that!

For this project, I used the Bo Bunny Whoo-ligans line! This line is so much fun with all the dressed up kids, the fun colour combination and the fun theme. I knew that I would just have to use it for something, and glad I finally could sit down to play with it. I love the 2 sided paper and really how easy it makes it for putting together a project like this. Simple, sometimes, is best! With it being so quick and easy to do, it was a great place for me to start to getting back into 'me' creating again. It feels so good to have finished with a project so quickly and I can't wait to keep this ball rolling.

Mini albums are a great project to create for many different things. I love doing them for small events, day trips, even for gift giving. I love how quickly they can be put together and how satisfying it is to finish a great project.

Wow, time sure flies!

Well I have fallen behind with my blog, once again! It has been an extremely busy 2 months, since my last post. Finally I think I have gotten a handle on life and all things that are within it.
The summer was an extremely busy, but fun one. Lots of traveling, road trips and just plain out enjoying the beautiful weather that was upon us.

Now that the cooler weather is here, I have begun to get 'caught up' with my TO DO list!

November classes are done and at The Memory Keeper and I am looking forward to seeing who will come out and join in the fun! If you haven't stopped by the store, make sure you do! I am sure you will not be disappointed in what you see.

Now the the November classes are done and delivered to the store, I have been diligently working on the very long TO DO list I had in front of me. The past couple of days have been very productive in this way and I am looking forward to finally being caught up totally. Lots of kits have been made this week and tomorrow will be no different. On top of more of the TO DO list, I will also be prepping for tomorrow's class.

I have also been working very hard on getting my own personal scrapping back on track and had a blast with fun creating last Friday night! I did manage to get a finished 6X6 Halloween album done that is just waiting for photos to be added. I will be taking pics of this project to share with you in the next couple of days.

Now that the routine is getting back in swing and my personal scrapping has begun again, I will be making better effort to be updating my blog more often and having more fun projects to share with you too.
