Autumn is a wonderful time of year. The leaves begin to change colors and you can smell the pumpkin spice in the air. October is no exception. For some it is about spooky ghosts, horror films and haunted houses. Halloween can also conjure up many fond memories of pumpkin carving, costume making, and trick-or-treating.
Scrapbooking is a wonderful way to preserve these memories. Looking back over the years, remembering time spent making decorations, attending harvest festivals, and candy making brings feelings of joy and warmth to the heart.
Have you ever considered making a Halloween Scrapbook? Do you have photos of the kids in costume? Wouldn't it be wonderful to look back over the costumes over the years? In addition to photos, each page could feature a child's drawing of their jack o'lantern, a description of their favorite candy, and even what they want to dress up as next year. Include a section of this year's favorite scary movies or what was used to collect all of their favorite treats. How about including a candy counter? Who do you think would collect the most candy each year?
You could also consider including recipes for sweet treats. Include a delicious cider recipe that your family loves to enjoy while attending a community trunk-or-treat. Or a favorite pumpkin cookie recipe that the family loves to enjoy while watching a spooky movie. Be sure to make your scrapbook adaptable so you can easily add to it every year.
Scrapbooks help us preserve and cherish our memories throughout the seasons. It would be so heartwarming to sit by the fire and look back over so many fond memories. Country Craft Creations has plenty of autumn and Halloween themed paper, embellishments, and die cuts.
