Halloween Past 2010

I will admit I am completely exhausted from all of the Halloween festivities. From the Halloween party at preschool to the trunk or treat parties to the block parties in our neighborhood and trick or treating this momma is tired....so guess what I am going to show you a little bit of our halloween from last year.....also because you only got to see it in a brief video.....so here are couple cute picks and layouts that I did that went right into my project life album. I love how they turned out....and I love the look in my album.

First off a layout that I did when we went to the Pumpkin Patch, this is the left page

and the right page


This is a template from Cathy Z available for purchase at designer digitalsMy girls dressed up as a cupcake and an owl for Halloween and they were so cute but I am totally bias because they are my little girls.... =)


and I just love this photo of the girls looking over at daddy getting ready to go to a play date trick or treat party....

And another collage that I added about going trick or treating on Halloween night


momma & her sweet little violet .... this is the left page of collage.....


this is the right side of the layout. This is a digital template from Cathy Z available for purchase at designer digitals. You can see that I did alter the layout. It is met to be a 8.5 by 11 page... but I wanted to have some variety in the way my page were lying in my book so I switched it up to like 7.8 x 7.8 and then sewed custom page protectors. Then I added it to my Project Life Album....and it looks AWESOME!!!

After reading my journaling in the last layout I realize that it is totally confusing......you see back where I'm from in southern Ohio trick or treat is always on a different day.....it doesn't always fall on Halloween. I'll never forget the first time I asked my husband what day trick or treat was on and the look on his face.....he thought I was the craziest person in the world.....he said, "Trick or Treat is on Halloween why would it be on any other day"? 

I had to think about for a moment.....good question...at first I was like maybe so we could go trick or treating in all of the surrounding towns (because everyone had it on different days) and get more candy.... because I'm from a really small town.....but on halloween we would get insane amounts of trick or treaters......like 400!!! But then I started putting two and two together.....we never had trick or treat on sundays or wednesdays because that is when we had church.....we never had trick or treat on fridays because that is when we played football....(our town lived and breathed football) Monday was normally the day that we had the halloween parade....so trick or treat either was on a tuesday, thursday, or saturday....I don't really know who is charge of making the decision of when trick or treat is...but that person has some power!!! Then I think they announce the date in the paper....or probably on facebook these days.....but after contemplating this arrangement I think it makes it complete sense. However, my husband thinks it is the craziest thing in the world. I like it because it makes Halloween a week long celebration instead of just a day..... but those are just my thoughts are it......how does your town celebrate Halloween?

  2. Love your pictures from Halloween last year! I remember seeing these layouts in one of your project life videos. How long does it take you to get a week of PL life done? Do you do it at one time or in 30 minutes here or 30 minutes there? Just wondering about your planning for PL?

    Thanks,
    Robin
