My Favorite Holiday - All Hallows Eve!

I love everything about Halloween.  There are so many ways to be creative from decorations for the inside and outside of my house, costumes (homemade are the best), favors, fun foods...so many opportunities to create.  The best is saving those memories on special scrapbook pages.  Halloween paper is one of my favorite types to purchase.  


Last year the theme for our family was The Addams family.  To be honest, the crazy scrapbooker in me looked up old Addmas family photos to get ideas for picture poses.  With Halloween right around the corner, I wanted to share some of the pages I created around my favorite holiday. 

I will post more page layouts related to this theme [soon].

Euro sticker – perfect for vacation memories


 
I have seen the oval euro stickers on cars for many years now. I always thought they looked neat, but I am not a fan of putting stickers all over my car. A few years back we visited Ocean City, Maryland and Washington DC. I spotted the euro stickers reminding me about a vacation page in which I created an embellishment resembling the stickers. Then my scrapbooker light bulb went off with the idea to use them in my scrapbook as a keepsake of our travels.
 
This year on our travels to Maine, I purchased the oval stickers from the two places we vacationed.  We visited Ogunquit, one of my favorite vacation spots, and Vinalhaven, an island off the coast of Maine.  I have included my picture of my pages so you can see how I used the stickers as an embellishment in the family vacation album.  It may not make for the prettiest embellishment but I love the idea of the memory it creates for the album. 

It is also a way for me to purchase the euro stickers (from many different places) and not have to plaster them all over my car!!  Oh, by the way, I broke down and decided to put a euro sticker on my car.  It’s a smaller scale one of OGT (Ogunquit) placed on the back window.  Notice I said smaller – not as big as the original euro sticker. 

Next time you are travelling and see a Euro sticker consider buying it as a memento to use as an embellishment in your scrapbook.  (Euro stickers are probably not acid free – use at your own risk!)
