Aiden Matthew Joel was born on September 15, 2012. He was 8 pounds 9 ounces and 20 inches. So I have been out of town, but I have a ton of projects to share with you that I did before he was born.
I've been working on Christmas presents.... I know it's only September, but I wanted to get a head start on them. I made a Scrapbook for my dad of old pictures of him and his family from his childhood and up. This is one of the one page lay outs I made.

*8.25 x 10.75" Martha Stewart Crafts Halloween Patterned Paper
*3 x 4 3/8" black photo mat
*Recollections Halloween Border Sticker
*K&Co. SpookTacular Adhesive borders
*Studio G spider punch
*Studio G Stamp
*Martha Stewart Creepy Fence Punch
*Ranger White Embossing Powder
*Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Vintage Photo and Iced Spruce

I loved this paper from Martha Stewart. A paper saving tip is that you can cut the card stock from behind the patterned paper to use for the photo mat. I usually leave an inch border just to be safe.
This photo was cut from a newspaper featuring my Dad and a co-worker dressed up for Halloween in the 70's. I decided to cut the photo mat larger and do my journaling under the photo.
I attached my photo using Photo Safe foam tape.
Here I added the third boarder sticker piece at the bottom.
Here is the Studio G Stamp that I embossed with the white Ranger Embossing powder, I used the Martha Stewart creepy fence punch and the Distress ink to make the fence on the side.
I used the Studio G Spider punch to punch the little spiders and attached them with very tiny pieces of foam tape.
Thanks so much for stopping by please come back again soon~ Carla
