Since I got married, I have been obsessed with couple costumes! Ok, let’s be honest, this will only be my second Halloween as a married woman, but I don’t see this obsession going away anytime soon. Last year my blond hair got a shock as I went bright red for Wilma Flintstone, and I don’t think it has quite recovered!
As you can tell from the photo, I wasn’t born a ginger for a reason. This year we are heading to Neverland with a little bit of pixie dust from me and some green tights from my husband (bless him!). And that got me thinking about all the fun scrapbooking possibilities for emphasizing a costume on a layout. From pirates to princesses, these are some fun ideas from past Creating Keepsakes issues that will get your Halloween juices pumping!
Re-create part of a costume on a layout, like Laina Lamb did with a homemade pirate belt.
Stitch a pattern into your background to imitate a costume, like Lisa Dorsey did with her Frankenstein-ish stitching. You could also trace an image, like a ballerina outfit, and stitch around the outline to emphasize the costume!
If you have photos with a lot of people and costumes, simply create a Halloween background that sets the scene and lets the costumes speak for themselves.
Hopefully everyone has their costume figured out and is so excited to dress up this year! Start thinking about cute (or scary) ways to document your family’s Halloween costume – we would love to see your ideas! You can share them in the Idea Gallery on Club CK.
Here’s to a spook-tacular Halloween!
