I love looking back through my scrapbook albums to see all the fun Halloween costumes that I use to wear. My favorite by far is my scarecrow costume. I even won an award at the party I attended that night. This year, I was inspired by an idea from MM's Show & Tell book by Erin Terrell. This is a great way to show multiple Halloween costume photos in one layout.
Trim 9" x 9" background out of cardstock
Add various photos to showcase Halloween through the years

Use the new Making Memories Mini Halloween album to create an album featuring Halloween costumes through the years!I used the album and lots of the new Halloween papers and embellishments to put together a mini album dedicated to my kids and their costumes (along with some fun memories) over the years.I started with my daughter’s very first Halloween (way back in 1997) and created pages to hold photos through 2015!
This is a project I’ve been wanting to do for a long time and I’m so excited to have it done.Now, for the next 12 years, all I need to do is add a photo and fill out the journaling card that is tucked behind each photo mat!
Do you ever get stuck trying to figure out what to do with all of your Halloween photos? Well today is your day because we are going to show you a bunch of fun page layouts using MM's Halloween program.
One technique I used on this layout, is that I allowed myself to change my mind.I originally designed this layout for a different photo.It’s a cool photo and I still need to take the time to scrap it before I forget about it.Even though I designed the layout for that photo, the layout wasn’t right for the photo.
My tip for you today:Trust instincts.Allow yourself the freedom to change your mind even if you’re almost done with your project.

CKU-A Orlando was a blast! Jayme, Hillary, and I had the best time with the best students and some of the best classes. We were even lucky enough to use MM new program – Noteworthy. Everybody love, loved the new product. The classes we taught were filled to the brim with amazing women who were so excited and gracious. I love it when everyone is so excited about scrapbooking, learning new techniques, and making new friends.
We had 80 fabulous women in our album track. We had close to nine hours together “sharing” The Fresh Anthology album was packed with beautiful product, fun techniques and key words to journal about! We were so thrilled to have had such a great time with new friends, old friends and each other! I loved being at CKU with my dear friends and co-workers Hil and Jaymes!
Thanks for another wonderful time, creating more memories to scrap!
