Happy Halloween!

Yay for a Saturday Halloween this year! I love having this whole day with the hubbs at home, Mamala visiting for the weekend, and lots of time to go parading around with Reed in his costume!

Did you see this work in progress picture? I just love Buddy the Elf, and lucky for Reed, he does too!

Unluckily for me, I don't have any pictures of that little booger in his entire costume yet, and I could SEE the layout I wanted to do in my head. Ever have that? Where you instantly know how you want to scrapbook something, before you've even taken the pictures? Happens to me all the time.

So I decided that rather than waiting to get that perfect picture, and probably lose the layout idea and umph in the mean time, I'd just go ahead and get the layout done, sans picture. I used my Blue Moon kit, and a few items from past kits, as well.

I kept it pretty simple this time, just grabbing a few things, only layers a few papers, and keeping as much white space as I could possibly manage, so that the focus will be on the two small pictures that will get placed over that layering of papers.

And guess what? Now I'm totally inspired to make up a TON of pages like this. It was fun. It was stress-free, and I can always add more "ME" touches after the photos are placed.

I hope you all have a great Halloween!
