Happy Halloween || Pretty Little Studio

Good morning and HAPPY HALLOWEEN!  I'm here today and I'm so excited to share with you my newest Pretty Little Studio project.

I'm a person who loves to compare year to year photos.  So, of course, I needed to start an album where I keep all my daughter's Halloween pictures in one place.  For her first year, I decided to use the awesome Goosebumps collection.

I made a two-page spread to highlight all the photos from the year that I wanted to remember.  Here's what I came up with:

Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you have a fun and safe Halloween! :) 


Pretty in Pink || Paper Issues

Good morning, friends!  I'm pretty excited about the Paper Issues challenge I'm sharing today.  The challenge is a Pretty in Pink challenge, and you just have to make the color pink the main focus of your page.  That's easy for me.  I am the mama to a girly girl and I love pulling out all the pinks and purples to document her adventures.

To create this layout, I dug through my stash and pulled out a lot of random items that I've probably been hoarding for way too long.  I used a lot of products from Elle's Studio, though.  I first began with my background.  I used the package technique to "smoosh" down my base color of distressed oxide and then I stamped phrases in a slightly darker shade.  Then, I just randomly built my layout using all the odds and ends I found in my stash.

I definitely got the pink covered :)  Here's the whole layout:

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  I hope you'll be able to play along with us.  And don't forget - every design team member has a special code that you can use in the Paper Issues store to save 20% off your entire purchase.  My code is KAT20.
