Tattered Halloween - Digital Scrapbook Kit Now Available in Etsy Shop

It is nice to be back home after a long weekend out of town.  This weekend has been a rough one for me.  I attended my brother's funeral on Saturday and ended up spending quite a bit of time with my extended family who I personally haven't seen in over ten years.  Normally, spending quality time with family and friends is relaxing, but this reunion was extremely emotional.  I learned a lot about my father who passed when I was a teenager, as well as the secrets he kept from my family.  There was a lot of irony in saying goodbye to my brother, but then meeting my older sister for the very first time.  I do feel blessed to finally have some closer in my life.  It is unfortunate that this newly gained understanding of my family history came too late for my brother.

I did have an epiphany while at my brother's funeral.  I find that life really does work in mysterious ways.  I discovered that in my father's attempt to keep his past a secret, he kept us from his family as much as possible.  The kicker?  I was born with a clubfoot and had to travel to Shriner's hospital as a child for multiple surgeries and appointments.  If it weren't for having a clubfoot and having to travel to the hospital often (which just so happened to be in the same city where my dad's family lived), I never would have gotten to meet his family.  There is another part to this epiphany.  If I wouldn't have had my triple ankle fusion surgery earlier this year, I never would have taken the time to locate my extended family and I wouldn't have known about my brother's death.  I have always despised my clubfoot and all the pain it has brought to my life.  I now realize that my clubfoot may have existed to serve an entirely different purpose. I no longer have to ask "Why me?".  I now know that my clubfoot serves as a means to keep our family connected.  Things really do happen for a reason... even something as awful as a funeral or a crippling birth defect.

With all of that being said, I do want to move forward and talk about the new Halloween digital scrapbook kit now available in my Etsy store.  The new Tattered Halloween scrapbook kit contains 20 papers, 24 embellishments, and 52 alpha. This kit is inspired by traditional Halloween imagery and features grunge prints, creepy bats, unlucky black cats, and even a spooktacular haunted house. The digital kit is great for scrapbook pages, journaling, seasonal crafts, and card making.  If you are interested in purchasing this kit or seeing the other items available in my Etsy shop, please click HERE.  This digital scrapbook kit is $4.00, but will cost you $3.20 when you use the promo code september20 at checkout.  This blog exclusive discount code is good for 20% off your entire purchase from Copper Blossom Paperie.  This blog sale will expire on September 30th!

Remember, you can also purchase the Tattered Halloween paper pack on my Etsy store.  The paper pack contains the same 20 papers that the full digital scrapbook kit has, but does not have all the embellishments or alpha. The paper pack is $2.75, but will cost you $2.20 when you use the 20% off coupon code september20 at checkout. 

Thanks for stopping by the blog.  I hope all of you have a wonderful week.  Thanks for stopping by. ❤ Tia - Copper Blossom Paperie ❤
