This photo book was made through Paper Coterie, which sadly doesn’t exist anymore. I still wanted to share because it is a great example of using basic blocks of color, Halloween quotes and simple layouts to create a fun book representing October/ Halloween adventures.

halloween photo cubes

Halloween photo cubes-1Another holiday, another excuse for photo cubes. Can you hear me singing “I just can’t get enough?”. You can see my other cubes here and here.

Halloween cube photo ideas:

costumes
pumpkin patch adventures
pumpkin carving
Halloween carnivals
Halloween/ costume parties
Halloween art
spooky looking skies

Start by using 2″ square cubes from Michaels, JoAnn’s or even online.  Cut various patterned Halloween paper into 2″ x 2″ squares. Find those precious October/ Halloween photos and cut into 2″ x 2″ squares. Adhere with Modge Podge or Aleene’s tacky glue using a foam brush. Finally, you have the perfect Halloween keepsake for a table or shelf.

 

disneyland – day 2 and 3

Day 2.

We might be just a wee bit excited about a Starbucks in Downtown Disney.Disneyland-11

There is this awesome board that makes a chalk outline of what it sees (us), but also allows you to draw on it. Simultaneously, there is a small screen showing the scene in Orlando that is doing the same there. You can make the small screen bigger and play with the people in the Orlando Starbucks. Too cool.Disneyland-12
