Blog contributor Sachiyo Omitsu is ready for a good scare — a scary-good Halloween scrapbook layout, that is! Take a look at this haunted house craft she put together to celebrate the spooky season — it may just give you goosebumps!
Do you remember your first haunted house visit? I still remember my very first haunted house when I was a child. Well, to tell you the truth, I only remember the fact that I’ve visited a haunted mansion but don’t remember what the inside looked like. I closed my eyes as soon as we entered the haunted mansion and didn’t see anything until we got out of the building. Later, I learned that it was a kid-friendly attraction and it was all about fun. I’d love to go back as an adult without closing my eyes! Do you love haunted houses and other spooky things?
