Awww, finally a crafty post

Yep, you may want to sit down for this one. LOL I am posting- AND it is a crafty post!!
So, on National Scrapbook Day I didn't get to scrap, but I did get to buy. (Almost as good, right?) My favorite LSS was giving away a gift with purchase- it was 5.5"x 8.5" pieces of chipboard cut in various shapes. (I added a couple of 5.5" square pages too.) I knew once I saw them I was going to make a mini album. I dug out some pictures and then dug a little deeper- well, a lot deeper to find the TAC Halloween paper I had been hoarding. (Well, it is retired- and I will never be able to replace it.)

I will say I am so happy with the results!! (That is something I rarely admit, I always see something that could have been better. Not with this one!! Woo Hoo!!) I am so excite to be able to share it with you.....

This is the front of my book. I used a 5.5"x4" piece of acrylic (sorry for the glare), a scary tree cut with the Cricut, some eyelets and jute. I love how each page allows just a tiny bit of the next page to show.

More Cricut cuts, cardstock, ribbons, Prima flower and a yummy Dew drop.

Love the scallops on this one. This is where Stickles were introduced.OK, are you seeing why I was saving this paper? I love the funky designs and colors. Not at all spooky and scary. LOL

This shows a couple of the pages, see the edge designs? So cool.

OK, SO what do you think??
Until later~

I love this album! And it's not just because I'm a Halloweenie freak ;)

I really like all of the different edge designs on the chipboard, the acrylic cover, and the paper (I have a few sheets left, too!)
