CLS Fall Blog Hop Stop 6

Thanksgiving is tomorrow, but have you scrapped your Halloween photos yet? Halloween is one of my FAVORITE holidays, and going back to childhood I have had a LONG tradition of dressing up (with many of mine and my boys' costumes thanks to my Mom who is a wonderful seamstress.) This year we had to change things up a bit so instead of going out to find the fun, we kept it in our own home. Instead of trick or treating in various neighborhoods around town, we made spooky food, ordered a fog machine and decorated our house to the nines for a fun night with my parents! Here is what I came up with to celebrate these special memories - instruction sheets are at the end of the post. Enjoy! 

A Spooky House with Doors and Windows!

    1. Thank you so much Diana! I can see me doing this "doors and windows" technique for lots of other projects too. I am going to have to remember to keep these 6X12 and 4X6 Peek a Boo pockets in stock.

  2. Oh my gosh - this is so clever!! Can't wait to give it a try!

    1. Thanks Lisa - it really wasn't too hard once I figured out what I wanted to do!

    1. Aww thank you so much! I had fun doing some very special type pages for this great evening with my family and my parents. Special events deserve fancy pages :) Appreciate you stopping at my blog so much! Fran
