I love Halloween. We all do - it's a family tradition where we get dressed up (grown ups too), we deck the house and garden out, and have a bit of a party. The boys invite what seems to be the whole neighbourhood. We get together to carve pumpkins, eat spooky themed party food, and then head out en masse to go trick or treating *until the children are physically sick. So when Anna asked If I would like some Halloween goodies from her online shop to check out of course I said yes. I knew we would all have a bit of a crafting session and start our party planning off. Here's what Anna sent me...
The packs are absolutely full to the brim of vintage elements such as die cuts, buttons and ribbon. The first thing I wanted to get my hands on where these badge embellishments - aren't they just perfect as paper clips? I also eyed up some of the dividers, they are just the right size to make into planner dashboards. Be sure to check out my decorated planner pages over on my blog.To be honest, the boys stole everything else! They had several projects on the go at once and I never got a look in! There were no rules. No limitations. They made scrapbooks with the dividers threading the ribbon through to bind them. Next up were party invites, button paper clips and spooky collages. The boys have plans to make their scrapbooks into memory keepers - a place to keep some photos of us all looking a little bit silly in our costumes. Well, who doesn't want to look back and laugh at photos of their goofy parents!?
What will you be making with your little ones this Halloween?
*One year, the boys had collected so many sweets there was enough to fill a pillowcase each! Our youngest thought that he had to eat all of his sweets on Halloween so he secretly munched through them all. What we thought was a huge pile sweets was actually a pile of empty wrappers - that night he became known as 'the human chocolate fountain'.
