Friday Fun - Halloween album


First THANK YOU all so much for your thoughtful words about Dottie. It means so much to me that she is remembered and not forgotten! 
The WINNER of the giveaway is MISTY C!!!! please email me paula@bigpicturescrapbooking.com
It sounds like all of you are going to be well organized for you next crop or when you find some time to scrapbook at home. I want to mention that the project folders that I mention yesterday are also good for ongoing albums. These are the type of albums that use the same cardstock or same general theme throughout, you are just adding pictures. Thank you to Cheryl for generously donating those goodies!
To get some creative juices flowing for you I am going to share my Halloween album that I completed last weekend. This album was designed by Christine Drumheller (couldn't find a blog for her) and the kit was from Cocoa Daisy. The kit is sold out, but I am sure you can adapt the idea using other products. The main takeaway I want you to see, is I combined several years of Halloween pictures together in one album. Not having to do individual layouts for each is a huge time saver!

Okay what I didn't worry about with this project is making sure that the colors matched. All I cared about: the Halloween pictures were together - and it was a good representation of the last three years. The only tool that I had to borrow from someone at the crop was the white gel pen for my journaling. My favorite product from this project are the small individual letters from Making Memories (tiny alphabet) - these things are the best and come in variety of styles and colors!
