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.
