Boo!

I have a fun Halloween page to share with you today. I made this a while ago for a design team call. I love using 8x10 photos on a scrapbook page.


This is Mary Poppins and Dorothy with Toto. Emily and Jessica look wonderful! Yes, Princess looks cute too. This is from Halloween 2006. I used Rusty Pickle papers and ki Memories ribbon. The title is QuicKutz. I did a lot of detail cutting on the pumpkin, cat, ghost, and spider. I love this page!! You can click on it to see it larger. DeeDee just commented and mentioned how much she likes the trees in the background, so I'm editing this post to tell you that those maple clump bushes are in our backyard, and I absolutely, positively LOVE them! I'm amazed by them every year, and I love the color change . . . just gorgeous!

I'm getting my hair cut and highlighted today, thank goodness. The girls have a band field night tonight. They go to the high school, and they get to play on the field with the high school marching band before the game. They then stay in the end zone with the band, and at half-time watch the high school marching band perform. After half-time, they can leave. I'm going to be chaperoning and taking photos. It's going to be COLD!! It's an awesome experience for them to get to play on the high school football field with the high school band, so this will be fun too. I hope you have a great day, enjoy your weekend, and thanks for stopping by!

You've posted a few really great layouts lately. I like them all but am particularly fond of the Jump Through the Hoop page you did. The one picture of your girls smiling with Princess is really sweet.

Have a great time tonight!
