happy halloween


Bubble bubble toil and trouble …!!!

It’s almost that time of year again. The air is slightly crisper, the leaves are changing colors and the kickoff to the holiday seasons is quickly approaching.

For our family Halloween marks the beginning of a whirl wind of decorating, parties, shopping, and lots of good family dinners. Since we don’t have children yet and live in a neighborhood that takes trick or treating very seriously, we have decided to turn our little Jack into our little Jack-O-Lantern! I must make mention that little Jack absolutely loves to wear clothes, so no doggies were harmed or uncomfortable during the taking of this photo 🙂

Documenting the holiday season is one of my favorite things to do. I try not to get sucked into to all the holiday themed collections, but have happily proven to be a massive failure at that endeavor. This collection by Crate Paper called After Dark is by far one of my all time favorite holiday lines. I love the retro imagery and the splash of aqua blue.

Another area that has proved to be a struggle for me is getting out my Silhouette Cameo and using it for projects. When I saw the scripty Happy Halloween title I knew that paired with the After Dark collection would make a great layout.

To see the full process of this project come together please watch the video b elow.
