Halloween and Christmas!

The owner of Back Porch Memories asked me to do a Halloween mini album kit for her store. I had a blast picking out all the goodies and playing for two whole days until I came up with this!  FYI – the kits are sold out, but you can enjoy the eye candy here.

Two little tags stuck in a pocket with a spider tag hanging from it
Left page folds out, middle page is a 4x4 acrylic page and right page has a little bling spider on the web
Kraft envy on the left holds three tags to put pictures on.  Right page is WRMK black lace on an 8x4 acrylic page.
Silly Faces page, unties and folds out to show two picture spots.  Pumpkin is corrugated.
Tombstones are tags that come out of the grass to journal on.  Moon has 3 hidden journal or picture spots that rotate out.
The last page, with a hanging tag that says ‘EEK’

I had a blast making it and couldn’t wait to share.  I have some other projects too that I’m getting ready for Christmas – here’s a mitten and snowflake garland made from two Maya Road chipboard books. Pardon the horrible pictures – welcome to winter in Alaska and no good light!
