I have to say I am having just the best time digging through my piles of papers and putting together photos with a selection of papers and other goodies and packing them up in my page planners.  And then, I sit and work up a bunch of pages and get all excited at how many page planners I am emptying out!  Can you say, easily amused.... 

I found just a couple of Halloween photos taken from the year that Kim and Nick got married.  Jacob was all weirded out about this wedding to begin with and then he was a little worried about making it home in time for Trick or Treat, would his Mom and Nick get home in time to see him off, etc. etc.  And he wanted to be scary, not cute.  s-c-a-r-y   And he wanted a lab coat--which was kind of impossible to find for a slight-built 9 year old boy. 

I wound up using a white dress shirt in a small men's size and altering it by cutting the cuffs and shirt tails off, then hand hemming it in the car on the way home.   The "blood" accents were created a la Jacob, the mad scientist.  The s-c-a-r-y mad scientist.  Anyway this is what my journaling is about that is hidden away in the little brown paper bag at the left side of the layout. 

Cobweb-y paper and black and white dotted papers are old Making Memories, the cut out pumpkin and s-c-a-r-y guy are from an old Rusty Pickle paper, the green dot is Life of the Party from Basic Grey.  Green foam Thickers make up the title.  I added a little border strip sticker, the green felt rick rack, a bit of a ticket stub and spattered a little beige paint.  Oh, yeah. and I also punched some circle prints for new eyeballs for the pumpkin and scary guy.  They had button look eyes before, and I was going to add real buttons on top, but I liked the colors in the punched circles better. 

And another one of the page planners is empty...  giggle, giggle. 



  1. Oh I love this... Especially the little bag and tag. great photos and love the pumpkins. thanks for sharing.

  2. Sounds very similar to how I scrap! I love to gather photos and pick out papers and supplies when I'm not feeling particularly creative. Then I have a pile of layouts to put together when I am feeling creative and have the time. Makes you feel so much more productive! :) Super fun layout. I love the funky pumpkins!

  3. Isn't it fun to get page after page done. So satisfying. Fun layout, are the masks stickers or did you make them?
