I have never really been excited about halloween... until I had a daughter of my own. Now I can't wait for trick or treat! I had so much fun last year with Nicole and she is looking forward to this year's celebration. The holidays will be busy so I thought of making a Halloween album in advance so that I just need to print the pictures and adhere it. "My Little Yellow Bicycle" sent me a complete line of their Frightful Collection, and I made this little book from their wonderful products. I'll post the entire album, when I have the pictures in it already. Thanks MYLYB!"



And here is a layout for Prima, using the Little Boo papers. I love this picture of Nicole. We were practicing "Scary Face" last year and this is the best that she could come up with. We have to try harder this year huh?:)



One more thing before I go... I was so honored and happy to have been invited by my friend Pia Lopez who designs for Daisy Bucket, to create a layout using Daisy Bucket products together with 7 of my scrapbook friends here from the Philippines. All 8 of us Filipina designers were featured in their Blog. Here is my creation. The picture was blurred because of the low light and because Nicole kept moving... and because I'm not a very good photographer at all!! LOL! But I loved that smile on her face. So I just enhanced it a bit, cut the image out, and recreated the play house by making one from paper.

I've never really liked Halloween either, but when I see how much the children like it it's very cool to dress them up and take a lot of pictures that we can scrap. *lol*

Have a great weekend

Hi there!
The book looks like it is going to be FAB as always. I never really cared for Halloween either until I day how much fun Angejolie had and now Solimar (almost 2) keeps saying "halloween" everytime she sees decoration, so that should be even more fun this year. Did I mention I am SO loving your 2 layouts, but what else is new.

Have a wonderful weekend.
