Halloween mini book part 1

Happy Halloween! Oh wait, I'm a few months late.....

Halloween is my favorite time of year, although we were too busy this past year to really celebrate. I still had a lot of memories and even some cute pictures of the pup, so I decided to crank out a mini book anyway! All my pics are from the same night- testing out the dog's costume. So I went heavy on the journaling. I also could not bear the thought of letting all the cute Halloween paper I had purchased languish for another year! I'm quite pleased with hose this turned out!

Cover Shot!
These 3-D letters are Jolee's. I originally sued them on our silver candy bowl the night of to give out candy.

This is the back. All throughout I tried to layer patterned papers and create more of a sense of dimension to it. Since my mini books are not covered, I like them to have more of a tactile side to them. This glitter paper from Doodle Bug is really pretty but quite thick to cut! All the punch outs and patterned papers are from My Mind's Eye Night Light and Spooked. The fun brads are from Making Memories
Spellbound line. CS is Bazzill.

This was my first paper bag album! It was a lot thicker than I originally anticipated, but I finished it off with ribbon instead of metal rings and it worked out quite well! I will most certainly be making this type of album again!

I have a bunch more pictures and I will upload those in the next day or two.
