YES, YES. Let's See!


So I talked yesterday about the super fun gifts that I've received.  Among those gifts was this WONDERFUL mini album that Dana gave me.  Well, I did a little personalizing and wanted to show it off.  Thank you Dana, you are an INCREDIBLE designer!!!

 Ok, first I just want to point out that Dana and I CLEARLY share the same tastes as she picked out the out-of-this-world papers from Authentique's Halloween line.  I LOVE this paper!!!  I just simply pulled a sheet of Echo Park's Apothecary Emporium paper to cut out the Tim Holtz Rosette and finished the rosette off with a Teresa Collins Haunted Hallows brad.  I also attached a piece of grosgrain ribbon and a skull and crossbones charm to the spine.  I love adding the little details!!!

 The inside is ready for a picture and some journaling.  I don't think I want to touch the webbed paper!!!  That was a nice design element to use the gauze with the plastic spider ring Dana!!!

So the next page I added the same "Happy Halloween" sentiment that I used for Dana's mini book last year.  I think I might just make that my thing every year!  HAHAHAHA!  I also added an EK Success border punch and Sandy's dancing witch.  This is really perfect!!!

Ok, so here's the end.  I just simply added the black mat, the sentiment (actually there isn't a sentiment there yet.  I cheated and added text to the pic digitally... hehehe) and some bling on the last page.  This is a wonderful book and can't wait to personalize it with this year's Halloween party pics!!!

So if you've never seen Dana's crafty prowess and want to sneak a peek, check out her blog HERE.  There's more Halloween fun to come!
