Thanks for visiting and sharing in our celebration of Webster's Pages two new lines.....NOW SHIPPING!!!  Please be sure to leave a comment on each of the design team members blogs for a chance to win some great prizes......and you know Webster's Pages is certainly generous when doing giveaways so don't miss out!!

 Introducing Park Drive:


Introducing Once Upon A Halloween:


If you are following the Blog Hop from the beginning you would have come here from the amazing Jaz's blog.  If you just happened upon the Blog Hop and would like to see the entire list of links for the Blog Hop be sure to visit Webster's Pages Blog.


While I love every collection that Brandin creates I have to say that Once Upon A Halloween is by far my most favorite....so much so that I asked Brandin during the last Winter CHA why she hadn't created one........and then she did!!  And she did it great!!  I couldn't have asked for more!!  I love the month of October, I love the colors of the season, I love going to the Pumpkin Patch, and I love that Brandin used purple in her designs with this collection!!  I love this collection for its soft yet vibrant colors, the traditional and non traditional colors, the fun graphics and the fact that you can create a themed Halloween project...or not!  When I saw the little spiders in the collection I knew I had to go back a few Halloweens and use the pictures of my grandson Trevor who was 3 at the time and was a spider, thanks Brandin, that was perfect...along with the beautiful shades of purple!
Besides featuring my cute little grandson...who is now 6....I wanted to highlight the journaling cards I used and that each collection that Brandin creates includes.  I scrapbook for various reasons but the top reason is to capture the moments that create great memories.  Now these moments can happen at anytime, a birthday party, a holiday, a vacation, an event and yes everyday.  To me sometimes these are the most powerful and a photo and even just a few words can bring that memory right back.  This particular Halloween sticks with me because my grandson wanted to be a spider so bad and the costume he got he liked at first but then later closer to Halloween, when we couldn't find another costume, he decided he didn't like it.  The costume was a one piece black pajama like suit and then there was a vest that went over it that had the spider and web on it.  He didn't like the vest.  So I got some glow in the dark fabric paint and painted the web right onto the black pajama and then removed the spider from the vest and sewed it to the suit.  He was thrilled!!  Grandma to the rescue!  So when I look at these pictures that's what I remember.  I also love that he is barefoot....always barefoot....even to this day. And ironically....today he is terrified of spiders, lol!!  

 Anyway, I used one of the journaling cards to jot down a few words that would trigger that memory and used that as part of my design.  Thats what I love about these journaling cards, you CAN use them as part of your design!  I also use them as decorative elements as well, they are works of art in and of themselves and look great tucked in here and there, especially in a great cluster.

And onto the rules:
Go to each designers blog and leave a comment by Thursday night (Aug 17).
Giveaway winners will be chosen from the blog comments and announced on Friday August 18.
