Welcome to my blog series, “Confessions of a Scrapbook Kit Hoarder“. If you haven’t already, please read The Intervention so you can understand the inspiration for this craft adventure.
I have another scrapbook layout to share with you. I am on a roll making layouts. I can’t wait until I feel the confidence I used to have when I made layouts. Still grappling with doubt while designing.
This layout is so special to me. The background to this layout is that a few years ago, they had this animated series called ‘Avatar the Last Airbender’ on television. All of my brother in-laws and one of my sister-in-laws kept on raving about this show. I didn’t pay much attention to it. My husband bought the DVDs for season 1, 2 and 3 and I still didn’t watch. Then this summer, my boys started watching and I finally did too. Let’s just say from the first episode I was hooked. So we watched all the of the disks and became big Avatar fans.
So when Halloween came around, I knew what they would choose as their costumes – characters from the show. So I ordered the costumes and my brother–in-law handmade a glider for Nicholas to go with his costume. So amazing. As soon as they put on their costumes on they became their characters. It was so much fun. I am sure they will get a lot of wear out of these costumes.
For the layout I used the October kit’s papers and added some My Mind’s Eye enamel dots and Evalicious paper tabs from my stash for added accents. I also used three different letter stickers from my stash which really makes me happy because I sure can hoard letter stickers!
Have a blessed weekend friends!
