I was clearing off my crafting spot and uncovered this little album that I started working on last year! I got distracted by life and other projects and this poor thing became neglected. I was able to spend some time finishing pages for it. All I have left to do is add some photos from this years Halloween and I will have 1 Dozen Years of Happy Halloweens all wrapped up in a pretty little package that can sit out for all to see and enjoy.
The pages are a mix of digi and traditional scrapping. It was really fun to gather photos from the various years and relive the fun with the boys. We shared lots of giggles and laughs and memories. That's what it's all about, right?
I've included a few of the pages here for you. The album is Making Memories Spellbound. I used some of that paper, sticker and embellishment line too. As well as scraps and such from my stash.

An amazing interception and a great block led to a scoring drive! It was great team work. I was lucky enough to catch it all in photos. It so inspired me that I created a scrapbook page for my sons album.
Loved working with the BoBunny Press Grid Iron papers. They are so perfect for football pages. They have the precise look and feel of a grungy, muddy field. The colors and distressed look give an edgy feel to the pages.
I also used some really cool paper by The Paper Company. It is called "football" and it looks and feels like the surface of a football. It is embossed and has a slight gloss to it. I matted two of the photos that I wanted to highlight with that paper and cut the edges with deco scissors to go with the edgy feel of this page. I then used a cuttle bug die to cut some arrows. I mounted the arrows and the one final photo with some foam dots to raise them and highlight them even further.
*Tip*: To be a thrifty scrapper, I use the "negative" area of the foam dot packs to cut smaller sections for mounting really small stuff on my pages.
