Halloween Junk Journal Digital Collage Set

Hello Friends!
I hope you are having a great summer!
Like many of you, I have had a very busy year..and have not had any time to be Artistic. The other day I had a little bit of time to play, so I created a 
I have a set of Chocolate & Orange pages that can be used for the cover of the Junk Journal, or just additional add ons.
 You could even mix and match the front and back covers if you liked.
I have a few Cover Title Embellishments on the sheet Below.  
Of course I have other Halloween Digital Collage Sheets that contain words, images and tags in my Etsy shop that would go great with this set.  I created two different labels, and also left some blank, so you could create your own title.
 I have altered all kinds of vintage Halloween images and have used them to create these spooktacular journaling pages.
 The Clown below is one of my favorite images!  He started out as a boy in a red clown suit, and I changed him all up...and created a pumpkin head for him.
I just love this Moon Face and the little girl image is one of the first images that I altered.  Changing her dress color, boots, apron, adding a spider...and giving her a kitty and hat.  It's the same little girl that I use in my Blog header above...except that she is wearing a little rose covered dress I made.
Lots of great pages to Journal on or add photos too!
 Here are a few pages that you could add photos or other Halloween images!!

 Halloween and Christmas are my favorite holidays!  They are super fun to decorate for!
As I mentioned before, I have many Halloween Collage Sheets sets that would match this Junk Journal set...but here are a few tags and tabs that I made specifically for the set.

Here are a couple Journaling ATC's and Pockets that they can fit in.
Super happy with how this set turned out!
This next week (when I am not doing Scout stuff) I plan on getting some much needed cleaning not sure when I will get a chance to actual print this out and use  I know my BOLB Carol...has printed out the pages and has already begun playing with them!

So...thought I would share with you what I have been busy with this past couple months.  June I went to Boy Scout Summer camp for a week, and two other weekend campouts as well as working full time.  July...I designed crafts and worked with all the kids making them at our Church's Vacation Bible School program.  Then the boys and I went to the National Jamboree (Boys Scouts).  I was chosen as a 1st Assistant Scout Master to attend with the 2211 Troop.  We had 35 Scouts and 4 adults in our troop and we with two other troops.  The map below will show you the camp site we were in...and just a small part of the 35,000 Scouts that were there.  The red tents are part of Sub Camp B...and not all of them are shown.  There were Sub Camps A, B, C, D, and F (venture crew) and Staff.  It was a lot of fun!  I spent the past year and a half attending a Jambo Leader Meeting and Jambo Troop Meeting each month on top of our Normal Troop 312 Meetings and OA meetings.

Here is a photo of the Scouts that were part of our troop.  The Boys were great!  Honestly...I miss it already!  We had 16 boys from our troop attend and the others were from other troops in our area.

Below are my two Kiddos....Gabe in the back with the beard (17) he went as a youth and Caleb (19) in front was chosen as a 3rd Assistant Scout Master (each ASM had different things they were in charge of). Then Ethan, Clay and John.

Today both of my son's are off to meetings for Scouts.  I chose to stay home and try and get some cleaning I am skipping a meeting :0)

Hope you have a great day!
Feel free to let me know how your summer is going...or if you have created anything using any of my collage sheets, I'd love to see them!

Mini Calendar Journal and Regular Size Journal

Hello Friends!!
Today I am sharing a video with you of the Calendar Jounrals that my BOLB (Bestest On-line Buddy), Created using some of my New Calendar Journal Digital Collage Kit.

You will want to visit her Blog to see all the photos!

(it is so stinking cute...I LOVE it)

She sent me her video last night....and that is when I thought.....OH.....Now I got to go and finish I had just got home from work....and it was hopefully sometime soon I will get to play with the the one photo above her printer was acting up...and she had some goof she used dies on them...and that is how she got the pockets up in the photo above the video...and I LOVE them!!
Thank you Carol for playing and doing a video!

Thank you to my followers for taking the time to stop by...and for visiting my BOLB's Blog!

Funny thing is I have been referring to Carol as my BOLB since I can remember....we met online a long time ago.  I even did a blog post explaining the whole "BOLB" thing...but at the moment I can't find it (that is why you should label your posts heather...but nope you don't).  But here is a quote about her from way back

"Next there is my BOLB (Best on line Buddie)
Carol really cheers me on in all my endeavors!
When I started doing videos teaching others how to use GIMP, she always watched, and would leave comments!  Nothing makes me feel better than when I have taught someone something new, and they are so excited!! 
Carol has thanked me in so many ways!
Makes my heart smile!  

When ever I create collage sheets, she is always the first to tell me how awesome they are!  Not only that, she is my Queen of advertising...and I don't even have to ask..."

I still feel the same way today!  
(even though we don't blog as much as we used I am sure she will be able to find my BOLB explanation post...cause she is awesome like that).
