well...just for today.  For years of my life, I hated Halloween.  I have this thing about feeling stupid so I don't like to put myself out there.  That and I was once jumped on Halloween.  I grew up in a questionable apartment complex and there were some shady and unsafe sections.  I was about 10 and trick or treating when someone in one of those demented bald-headed masks and a cloak grabbed me from behind.  He tried to take my candy, but little did he know that you don't mess with a chick who loves her chocolate.  I happened to have a hard candy apple at the bottom of my sack and I proceeded to hit him with it.  I was not giving up that bag of candy.  He ran away and I got home safely.  I can't think about Halloween without recalling that memory.

I enjoy it now as the kids love it.  What makes them happy makes me happy!

I really went off track...I am really here to post a non-Halloween layout I made using the new, ultra awesome Hocus Pocus collection.  It is obviously a Halloween line, but the colors, graphics and shapes fit many topics.  So I used it to showcase a real life moment.

Both of my kids have great pouts and I have been lucky to catch it on film!  See what I mean about Hocus Pocus working well with this topic...the skeleton and Hocus Pocus words...It is a fab collection.

For more details, head over to the Pink Paislee blog!

Off to hit the hay and hope I don't have nightmares about my Halloween jumping!

  4. another gorgeous page stacey... and love how you used the halloween collections for everyday page :)

  5. fantastic page. I love that you used a theme line for something different. That shows so much creativity & inspires us to think outside the box too.

    Hugs for sharing your Halloween memory - that would be enough to turn anyone off of the holiday. It's amazing how our kids can change those deep seeded things in us.

  6. Love it Stacey, I too adore the collections you can get milage from!! Great layout!
