Today for my project, I decided to scrap my favorite photos from last year's trick-or-treating with my kids. For CHA, I used a very oversized version of the photo here of my daughter for one of my Witch Hazel projects, but for today, I wanted to create a page for myself with both my kiddos in their costumes. Instead, I decided to take this very silly photo of them and make it the center piece then bookend it on each side with their more posed images from the evening.OA_Halloween_WitchHazelGridDetail
I framed everything with lots of layers of Witch Hazel papers, and the addition of a fringe border of burlap. I love adding burlap to my projects this time of the year. And talk about going perfectly with papers, I'm in love with how it looks with Witch Hazel! 

I also thought I'd share a project that I created for CHA this past summer using Witch Hazel that I haven't shared on my blog yet. It's using the the Witch Hazel Here and Now Mini Album and Chapter Inserts.DSC_3602
I decided to call it my Costume Catalog book, documenting all of the costumes that my kids have worn throughout the years. I can't wait to re-create this book for myself, because I love the concept and Witch Hazel is most definitely the perfect collection to create such a fun memory book. Here's the book as it was created for CHA........
