MY NEW ART BLOG HERE I would love your company.

A New Year and a New beginning... I have created a new blog filled with old and new art. It is time for me to focus on something new. I will be leaving this blog open for inspiration and so I can look back at what I have achieved in the future but I will be adding no further content here.

Boo.........Halloween memories book

Well after a lovely weekend of fun with DG and facing the fact that I am now considered over the limit (which means over the hill!! to you and because I'm more than 40... and finding out that in DG eyes that I am older than his No1 Nanna and Grandad (MY Mam and Dad!!) I think it's time to get some blogging done before I succumb to my decrepit body and old brain and end up doing nothing but putting my feet up with a cup of strong Tetleys and afternoon scones with jam and cream... well isn't that what oldies do...rofl
I love DG to bits but he certainly has a knack of making me feel that it won't be long before I join my maker... especially when he asks..."Nanna how long will it be before you die?" Helloooooooo I ain't ready to go for a long time yet... I've got too much crafting to

On that note.... it seems a looong time since I did any Scrapbooking so decided to do a little Halloween memories book that I can continue adding to as DG gets older. He LOVES Halloween as most kids do and thoroughly enjoys the dressing up.
I haven't put it together or added the journalling because it's an ongoing project, need to dig deep for some more Halloween pics from before last year cos I know I have a few... but last year's photos seemed a good place to start . The papers, stamps, chipboard and rub on's are all from the Cosmo Cricket Haunted kit. Take a peak at some of them here. They are lubberly :)

As Dracula last year DG also had company with DD's friends dog dressed up too. I'm not sure if DG was impressed at having a companion but many of the inhabitants of the houses they visited managed to find some kind of treat for both of them :)
Another journalling page is opposite this closer photo of DG's makeup and outfit and I know he will be thrilled with the skeleton and the bat when he sees them. I added green acrylic paint to these two pages as I wanted to keep in some of the green from the journalling strip on the first photo layout.
I also did another layout page and there are some sneak peaks below of this one..........

but if you'd like to see the rest and some more close up pics of my pages above then pop over to The Papergirls blog and check them out.

Have a fab day everyone and thanks for popping by :)

I have a feeling that you have a very young spirit, Chris...and that's all that's important! Your artwork reflects your sense of adventure and fun and this wonderful Hallowe'en book is no exception. I love all the embellishments that you've added to it.

I like the idea of a little theme book that you can add to, even each year! Good idea.
I'm with you in that OLD category! We babysat our 5 month old grandson this weekend, that will really make you feel old.
