Boo! Not A Scary Post

Happy Halloween!  Tis' the day of dress-up for children and adults alike.  "Knock, Knock."  "Trick or Treat."  Anyone give or get Tricked?  Some of my best memories of growing up are about Halloween.

This year I went with my daughter and granddaughter to her first Halloween Party.  All the kids were totally cute.  Even the monsters were not scary!  They sang songs, played games, and played on all the equipment.  Mr. Jared, LH's instructor, was Hans Solo.  It was so much fun. 

I could barely wait to scrapbook LH's first Halloween page.  Not in the least scary. 

The Story
This is LH and me sitting on the trampoline.  She is Minnie Mouse.  You can tell grandma loves her grand-girl. 

The Layout
(i'm frustrated about photographing my layouts...sorry it is crooked once again)
What was Fun!
  • I cut the scalloped circle using another scalloped 12 x 12 paper traced on to the sheet of My Minds Eye.
  • I printed Minnine and Blue Bird onto photo paper and cut it using my Fiskars Micro-Tip Scissors.
  • My photo is still crooked.  I think I'm just photographing it wrong.  :(  Please tell me what I'm doing wrong!
  • The flowers, lace and bling, and buttons are all from Prima.  The paper is from My Minds Eye, cardstock and Thickers are from American Crafts.

Can you believe it's only been 8 months ago that my granddaughter was born?  It's like I blinked and time flew by.

    What software do you used to edit your photos?

  5. just wanted to say i love how you have a gratitude list at the end of each very nice.

  6. Both your granddaughter and your layout are adorable. As far as straight layouts, I use Picasa, which is a free software that you can download. It has basic fixes that you can use to straighten your layouts. Very easy to use.

  7. Love it!!! What a cutie she is!!! :)

  8. It's a great page and she is gorgeous :)

  9. Great Layout! She is adorable! You must be so proud! I can't get my layouts perfectly strait if I photograph them (it is a perspective thing...) However, I often scan them as two parts and re piece in MS publisher. You can also crop a photo there so it seems mostly strait. Hope it helps! -Amanda
