Candy + Field Trip

This month we were asked to create a Halloween themed page using our Glitz Designs supplies. Since Glitz Designs doesn't have specific Halloween items, I thought it was a great challenge. I decided to use a pictures of my kids and their friends last Halloween that I took while they were counting out their candy.

Last year was a different Halloween for us because we were on a cruise. We'd found a kids sail free deal during the week of Halloween and we just couldn't pass up that great deal! This was our first cruise as a family and it was one of the best weeks ever. Hopefully someday we will get this opportunity again! The kids got to trick or treat on the boat and also got to pose for pictures with Mickey and Minnie. They may not have collected as much candy as they would have at home, but I think the trade off of being on a cruise was well worth it.

I had fun combining some of the Glitz lines from earlier this year with some of the brand new good released this summer that started shipping last week. I love how three different lines combined so easily on this page.

One of my favorite new Glitz products is their paper garlands. Each of the new lines has a coordinating garland of little circles in various sizes that are sewn together. Here I used the garland along the bottom of my photo. I'm excited to find a lot more uses for these garlands!

The second layout I want to share today is about a field trip I went on with my son last week. It may not seem like the most exciting topic, but we had a good time together and I wanted to be sure and document it while it's still fresh in my mind.

On this layout, I again combined three different Glitz lines. I love mixing things up, layering them and putting a variety of products together.

Another one of my favorite new Glitz supplies is their tape. I used three of the tapes on this page. It's a perfect way to add a touch of color and embellishment! They have 6 new tape styles so you can be sure you will be seeing them on lots of my future projects!
