Hey Girl

Hello!  Yes, I am still alive and yes, I am still scrapping away! My poor blog. Despite my best intentions, my blogging has slowed way down as I have attempted to compensate for a fuller schedule. Since school resumed mid-August my kiddos' extra-curricular activities have increased and, I am happy to say, I am routinely exercising! These things have cut my free time down a bit and by the end of the day I am usually too exhausted to do any sort of activity that requires my brain! Ha ha.

So with that being said, I am attempting to get back into a blogging routine because I like it and with the return to shorter, colder days and more time being spent inside this is definitely a good time to get back into a somewhat regular blog schedule and with that goal in mind, here is a fun layout that I have really been wanting to share:

This layout was a complete joy to put together. First off, the picture is just so great-Maleia was incredibly happy to be walking in the Halloween Parade at school dressed as Mal from the Descendents and I caught this with my camera. Second, I just loved this cut file from The Cut Shoppe and could not wait to layer it over a misted background. Third, I used a crazy mix of paper here-I used both Doodlebug's Halloween Line and Cute Girl from Crate Paper-and had a fun time mixing the two together to come up with a fun color combination. Finally, it felt so great to reach into my stash of supplies and use some of it up.

One of the challenges that I face when creating layouts for a very themed photo, is creating a layout that is not very themed. I know that might not make sense, but unless it's a Christmas photo, I really feel uncomfortable using themed products. For this layout I felt like I found a good balance between Halloween and non-Halloween product.

Thanks for stopping by today and I am absolutely looking forward to sharing more here on my blog as the year winds down!
