Today I do have a project to share with you. It is a digital scrapbook page and featured one of my favortie Halloween photos of all time.

I used this same photo last year in one of my projects, so you may remember it. Every year we try to host or participate in a Haunted House. Well, this particular year a friend and I got together and planned out a Haunted House, and the theme was an insane asylum. In my opinion, it was the best one we ever did. My husband played the demented, psychotic doctor who was doing experiments on the patients. My now 12 yo, who was 6 at the time, played the little creepy girl patient who talked to the ghosts. She was super scary, I think maybe even more scary than everyone else, and she LOVED participating and being the little actress!
Well, her favorite line to say was "The ghosts like me but they don't like you", which she came up with all on her own, and she would say it in a creepy voice to the asylum guests as they walked through. Anyhoo, this picture was snapped after we were done and had come inside the house to relax. My husband was joking around with her as the doctor and he grabbed her to "strangle" her and we just happened to have the camera out. I just love the look on both their faces-they look happy and like they truly are enjoying themselves, which is why I love the picture so much.
For the page, I once again used the My Memories software, and just let me remind you to visit on the 31 for more about that. I included her fave quote, and also some journaling about the event. I also added in one of our Raven stamps, which I stamped and then scanned, then resized in photoshop. The raven is there because during the Haunted House, my friend's husband (as a patient) bit the head off of a fake bird, which was gross and completely genious, we didn't know he was going to do it. It's just a reference to that. Before anyone says anything, just know that my daughter was not a witness to this, lol. We kept her out of the gory aspects of the house because of her age.
So, I am completely in love with digital scrapbooking. I have tried some normal scrapbook pages and although I am good at it, I just don't have time. I will probably have lots of these to share in the future. I hope you enjoy it and that this page gave you some ideas. Have fun hopping today!
