My kids have a slight interest in scrapping. My 6yo actually just scrapped her first page yesterday and is now on her 6th page. She knows the basics on finding what she wants to use and opening it in Photoshop, as well as how to rotate, resize, and layering, and she can do it all on her own. I think she has found a new hobby. 😉 My oldest learned how to scrap as well as the basics on how to create a kit last year and he had the cutest ideas. Pokemon took over though, so he hasn’t done much with it since.

Well, yesterday I decided to take the kids along the ghost train posted below and show them some of the cute goodies. Afterward they each designed their own Halloween themed popcorn box. I helped them with the program, but they chose what they wanted to use and where it was placed, as well as helped with the assembly. They turned out so cute! I think this is what spurred Cassie’s interest in scrapping. 🙂

Didn’t they do a great job?! They are already asking what we can make next. 🙂

If you could please spare some positive thoughts and prayers for my grandfather, it would be greatly appreciated. He was recently diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma of the vocal chords. This will be his second time battling cancer within a ten year period. He started radiation treatments yesterday. So far he is in good spirits, and remains hopeful that he will not need surgery to remove the vocal chords. We know that keeping faith and hope up during this time is going to make a big difference, along with a whole lot of praying. Thank you!

Not much else to report here today, so I am signing off. Have a great week everyone!

    Those popcorn boxes are adorable! I think it is fabulous that you inspired your kids to use their imagination and share a hobby/outlet that you enjoy!
