A Look at Halloween's Past



We've had some great costumes over the years, from spray painting jackets to make the joker, sewing gauze on tee shirts to form the mummy (photo above), Jeff Gordon and Luigi of "Mario and Luigi".  I have been acting up on layouts of Halloween.  Next up is some work on Disney and of course more sports layouts!

This year of school is so busy - eighth grade!  We are madly getting prepared for high school.  Wow does time fly!

Have a wonderful fall!

A little bit vintage.....

I have been making tags for a challenge by Martha (Martica) at scrapbook.com and I also entered another challenge from Marci called 5 plus.  It is using another's layout for inspiration by taking 5 of their elements and adding your own.  So here is what I have come up with.....


This layout is my DS doing his 7th grade presentation for Night of the Notables.  He chose Jackie Robinson as his notable.  I love all of the work he did on his poster, and his oral presentation.  Plus his baseball outfit (most of which was his) came out great.  Preston loves baseball, so this was a natural.



These two tags are made with vintage images supplied by Martha.  This group does amazing vintage/shabby chic work.  I always feel a bit inferior.  However, I love how these two turned out.  For the first tag, entitled "the Lord is my Shepherd,"  I cut layers from about 7 images and carefully stacked them to give a dimensional look.  I of course added the 23rd Psalm first and second stanzas to the scroll.


I love this image. She has a great come hither look.  I entitled this tag, "Want to dance?".  I envision her as the life of the dance floor!


Thanks so much for stopping by!  Hope to see you all again soon!
