Halloween Layout (Mischief)
More new artwork...YIPEEE!
This one is using the brand new "Mischief" kit that debuts Aug. 1. This was also an example from my journaling class ("The Wonderful World of Words") at the Close To My Heart National Convention last week.
There are 2 journaling pockets on this layout. The focal photo is a pocket (you can see the journaling pulled out in the 2nd photo), and the little accent to the right of the photo is also a little pocket (in photo #2 you can see it pulled out). I love those little buggers! They are called Decor Journaling Spots and will be available on Aug. 1 as well.
Here is the journaling from this layout (which is documented in the slide out journaling card pocket behind the main photo): "I'll never forget the Halloween of 2003. Dawson's 4th grade teacher asked if I would come into the classroom during their Halloween party and read them a Halloween story. I told him I was happy to do it! I decided not to tell Dawson and surprise him. The closer it got to Halloween, the more excited I got about the surprise...in fact, I decided to make it an even BIGGER surprise than I had originally planned. I dressed up like a witch, complete with wig, face paint, a broom and costume. I hardly recognized myself, so I was pretty sure Dawson and his friends wouldn't know who I was. I went over to the school and quietly motioned Dawson's teacher out in the hall and asked him to introduce me as "Minerva the Witch," and not to tell the kids who I really was. I spoke in a Scottish accent (don't ask me how I pulled it off. All I know is I just tried to talk like Mel Gibson in Braveheart and it worked pretty well.) and told my story. It wasn't until after the party that I went up to Dawson and told him who I was. He was shocked! He really had no idea it was me. We both had a good laugh. After school, as we walked out to the car we passed several other mothers who are good friends of mine. Not a single one recognized me. I haven't dressed up like Minerva since then, but it sure was a fun Halloween!"
