ISSUE #9 OCTOBER 2011
For most, Halloween conjures up either memories of fear or fun. For me, Halloween spurs memories of homemade donuts. Every Halloween for thirty something years my aunt has made homemade donuts for us at her annual party. And no, she never wimped out and just bought them from the local grocery store. I am pretty sure there would have been a mutiny if that had ever been the case. There is just no replacement for that warm, slightly soft, deep fried circle you eat and then lick the slightly lemony icing that clings to your fingers. There is just nothing better. What about you? Is there a particular Halloween memory that makes your season? If so, you need to scrap it and iScrapbook.com has all your Halloween scrapbooking needs covered. Just look at what our amazing designers have for you


You'll find the following in this issue:

The colors this month remind me of childhood Halloweens. Vibrant, fun and intense - isn't that what October is all about? So, whether you need to scrap photos of your child in their halloween costume, your teen participating in the local spook alley, or yes, your memory of homemade donuts, it is covered in our October color scheme offering.

Artists' Corner
This month you are going to love the work of the stunning Ms. Cherity Andersen! She is one half of the dynamic "Digital Kits" duo! She has been with iScrapbook.com since its launch, so she is practically like family around here. See Cherity's products

To think, she is a mother of 2, a hairstylist, and a digital designer! I am not sure how she does it, but I am glad she does! Her work has gotten me through rainy spring days, wedding showers, and the occasional broken heart. Honestly, if I had any artistic ability, I think my style would look very similar to Cherity's. She seems to have perfected that hard to blend style of fun and sophistication, I only dream of. It is good she is so capable because I go to her kits constantly. Learn more about Cherity

Here are just a few of my favorites!
