I have been MIA for a while, but that doesn't mean that I haven't been enjoying everything about Close To My Heart. Every month during the school year my friends and I enjoy a weekend of scrapbooking and catching up. I really look forward to this time of year because it means that we will be getting back together again each and every month!
It's Fair time around here and the air is crisp and clean. Soon the trees will be a beautiful display of color and children will be planning their costumes for Halloween. I love the gorgeous colors of the new Close To My Heart Cats and Bats paper pack. My grandchildren are still young enough to enjoy trick or treating, but before long, that part of their life will be done. I can still remember the excitement of getting dressed up and going from one house to another in our neighborhood when I was young. It doesn't seem like that long ago. We always bought out costumes extra large because sometimes we had to wear our winter coats under the costume!
The people in our town really get into character for the night. One family drives around in a pick up truck decorated to the hilt and the family passes out candy to the trick or treaters. There are a couple of houses where people really go all out with decorations and costumes too. One gentleman always gives out barrel drinks to the kids and they think that is the best thing!
What I enjoy the most though is watching my grandchildren running from one house to another with shouts of joy. I especially enjoy looking through the pictures later and scrapbooking those memories. Cats and Bats will make those pictures pop and the Workshop Your Way kit makes it so easy to put those layouts together.
Lately I have been adding Picture Your Life card pages to my layouts that make it so easy to display lots of pictures. The pages go together quickly and have coordinating cards that add color and patterns that add to my layouts. Each paper pack comes with cute Picture Your Life cards with beautiful journaling cards or titles for the Picture My Life memory protectors.
Close To My Heart makes it so easy to preserve your memories!
