Halloween Mini Album

I have a fun Halloween mini album to share today. This album was all about fun and treats and not so much spooky Halloween. I adore all kinds of Halloween, cutesy, vintage, spooky--anyway it comes. It is a holiday, for me, that is all about having fun and being silly. It helps that my husband is such a Halloween fan--we all get into the fun.

The cover...

Inside the cover.  I couldn't resist using such a great patterned paper for the inside.  The haunted house is cut from glitter paper with the Tim Holtz Alteration Die Rickety House.

The small strips on the diagonal pockets are from the bottoms of the patterned paper. The other side of the strip had the bar code. I've noticed more companies doing this. It's a great little add-on.

All of the costumed little friends were made with the paper doll die and clothes.  I altered and added to create each costume.

The final page of the album is sort of an explosion page.  It folds out to add more pictures or journaling.

As you can see I didn't do a lot of embellishing. I wanted to leave room for pictures. I'm sure that as I get pictures in the album I'll start adding little pieces here and there. I made the binding nice and thick to allow for thicker pages.
