BLOG PARTICIPANTS:

I created this layout featuring "Once Upon A Halloween" collection 
which is absolutely amazing and as you can see so versatile. 
I chose an everyday photo of my kids and simply incorporated it 
with those beautiful pattern papers from the collection.
Don`t you just love those cute cameos?
I featured those stunning cameos on my page. 
I made one of them part of my title 
"Keep Calm and Scrap On Our Memories"...
a message from my kids to me ;-)
And this is what I do....and I Love it!
I love scrapbooking! 
We all scrapbook because we want to preserve our memories 
- children, wedding, birthdays, holidays, vacations, funny moments, etc.
And as everybody else this is also my primary aim - to keep 
the memories of our family in a different way... in a creative way.
 The truth is that through the years my motivation to scrapbook changed.
In the beginning I wanted only to show as many photos as possible on a page....
you could hardly see any pattern papers :-)
Nowadays I`m completely concentrated on the photo I`m showcasing
(rarely multi photos layout) and the products I`m working with.
My motivation to scrap is the creative aspect of scrapbooking.
Have you ever asked yourself what kind of scrapbooker you are? 
I know people scrapbook, for example, because of the journaling.
For me it's really the photo and the products that motivate me.
 I spend a lot of time to "build" my page and I admit that 
the whole creative process keeps me calm, peaceful and relaxed. 
I`m a patient crafter and love to take my time to finish a layout.
The drop flower trim was initially green but I painted it so it`d match the cameo.
The trim with the gorgeous large circles was treated differently :-)
I cut out all the circles so I can incorporate them with my 
fussy cut flourishes. I placed dazzle me gems in the centres.

The rest of the trim was placed behind the grid 
which I cut out of "Haunted House" pp.
"Haunted House" pattern paper
OTHER PRODUCTS I USED:
"Palm Beach" - Sand Castles {Clean&Simple}

*NEW*{657522} Sizzix Sizzlits Medium Card Phrases Set
