Well TGIF and Happy Halloween! And can I just say how glad I am to be celebrating the night of ghosts and goblins on a weekend this year?! The fact that we can stay up late, fill our treat bags to the brim, play a few tricks, and get to sleep in late the next day means we just may avoid the inevitable sugar-crash-I'm-tired-and-whiny-and-up-way-past-my-bedtime meltdown of years past. And my kids are sure to appreciate not having to deal with THAT mom.
But before the All-Hallowed Festival of Candy Corn begins, I thought I'd share a seasonable page (and a little giveaway, too!). This layout features my goofy kiddos in the pumpkin patch, obediently jumping for photo ops and in anticipation of seeing the Great Pumpkin. We may have just missed him, but the caramel apples totally made up for it. (And bonus! Mom was happy with the photos!)
S U P P L I E S :
You can read more about my inspiration for this page here, but suffice it to say my love for circles still runs as deep as my love for candy corn. And while the overall design is very simple (say, like the ingredient list for oh, i dunno, candy corn?) I tried to add extra texture and detail with my baker's twine stitching.
I'm currently finishing up my layouts for the November JBS kits, but I have a nice little selection of goodies left over from October that are perfect for fall scrapping. And so a giveaway is in order!
I'll send out the above collection to one reader - all you have to do is tell me your favorite Halloween candy. Or sweet treat. Or sugary indulgence. Because (gasp!) I'm feeling the need to branch out from my beloved candy corn and try a new addiction. So leave me a comment and I'll draw a winner on Monday!
Hope your Halloween is spooky, sweet and most of all, saccharine-filled!
