There is one redeeming quality about Halloween: my Halloween scrapbook.
It's small, simple, and took only a couple of hours. I shopped Hobby Lobby and got all of my embellishments and paper on clearance. A 6x6 book is perfect for just one 4x6 picture and a couple of cutsie things.
Now I have a picture of the kids dressed up every year since Bubba was born. For a while I was missing a picture, Bubba's 2nd Halloween. I just left a space for where it should be and went on with life. Eventually I found a picture of the missing night and added it in. Don't let one missing year keep you from such a quick, easy keepsake.
I set my book out some time in September when I decorate for fall and leave it out until I put Christmas up. It's fun to go back and look at how much the kids have grown and what costumes they loved which year.
Here are a few pages out of my book:
While I had all the stuff out and the mess made, I went ahead and scraped pages to fill the book. Now I have pages already done just waiting for a picture. Here are some pages in waiting:
I love my Halloween book. For this wanna-be scrapper, it's the perfect project. I feel a sense of accomplishment, I have a finished product, and I have no excuses for keeping it up-to-date.
