Fright Night

Hi everyone, Happy Friday. So begins a super busy week! First some business, the winner of last weeks stamp set is Julie E. Please email me with your address so that I can get your stamps to you. This week I am giving away this fun fall stamp set from Hanna stamps. To win just leave a comment on this post and I will post a winner next Friday.

Saturday, Lily has dance and Tyler has soccer and Tyler has his first non-family birthday party to go to. Then on Sunday, my friends and I are taking my sister our for her birthday which is actually on the day after Halloween. Apparently, my mom was supposed to have a c-section since my sister was breach with the cord wrapped around her neck, but the 2 year old me had the royal fit of all fits when my mother took my Halloween candy away which as my mother tells it caused her to go into labor early which is why my sister was born the day after Halloween.

Then on Monday, it's Halloween and we usually all go to my mom's and do our trick or treating there, that way my parents can see the kids and we can all go together in the neighborhood we grew up in.

Today, I am sharing something that I have been working on for awhile, this Halloween mini. First, I have to give enormous credit to Kathy Orta from Paper Phenomenon. This is from her paperback album tutorials. Yes, this album is made using paperbags. On the cover of her album, she used a skeleton and I couldn't find one that I liked but I found this super cute spider which worked perfectly. I used hotglue to adhere it. I also used Recollections dimensional stickers in the album especially on the front cover.

The book has tons of real estate for pictures and large pictures too. There are pockets and foldouts - very cool. Here is a pocket along with some dimensional stickers and a journaling tag also from

It really is a paperback album and so there are pullouts from the bag - I put tabs on the end of these to make it easier to pull out.

I will show the rest of the pics tomorrow. Making these mini albums is getting addicting. They are really fun to make and once you 've made a few, they are easy and quite quick to make! Thanks for looking today.

Pin It Now!
