Last month I took a break from the scrapbooking challenge to get my photos organized. That was definitely time well spent! In case you are new here, I am very far behind (at least 7 years) on my scrapbooking. My oldest child is 8 years old and I did complete his first year album before I began this challenge. To make it easier for me to get caught up, I am using the Close to My Heart Workshops Your Way Scrapbooking Kits each month. Each of these kits has a certain theme and enough materials to make at least three double page layouts.
When I saw this month’s kit was Halloween themed, I knew I had more than enough photos to go with this cute Cats and Bats Kit. Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. I love taking pictures of the kids in their costumes and walking around the neighborhood collecting candy. The pure joy on their little faces is something I look forward to every year!
It is so much fun to work with these kits! Sometimes I follow the instructions completely if I have the same number of pictures used in the example. Most of the time I have to change it up a little to accommodate the pictures that I have. It also opens my mind to different products. After using this kit, I am loving the shimmer trim. It is similar to ribbon but it has an adhesive backing. This kit came with the black but I am thinking the red or gold would be awesome for Christmas!
Here are the pages I was able to complete using this kit:
I’ve decided that it’s really not so bad being far behind on my pages. I am enjoying going back down memory lane with a lot of these pictures!
If you are far behind or new to scrapbooking, I highly recommend using these Workshops Your Way Scrapbooking Kits! Next month I’ll be jumping into Fall and Thanksgiving photos with the new Falling For You Kit.
