2 cute 2 spook....

This is my 2nd post of the day. Please scroll

Thank you!
This was a fun little album to make! I got to use up lots of Halloween bits and pieces and my fun Halloween stamps from Thats Jazzy Stamp Dream! I love

Today it is time for another challenge over at Scrap and Stamp. This week we challenge you to do any holiday except Christmas with at least one stamp.

I wanted to do an album with photos from every year since Patrick's first Halloween. I used an 8x8 acrylic stadium album from kits2remember. I love the stadium albums because you can see a little peek from each page from the front.

I wanted to keep the front pretty basic. I used some fun Lil' Davis letter tiles and thickers for the rest of the title. I added one letter from "spook" to each page in the bottom corner. I inked all my papers with black stazon as well as the edge of the album pages.
Isn't this pumpkin so cute! Well both of The little pumpkins, spiders and ghost stamps are all from Thats Jazzy Stamp Dream. The fun flourish corner stamp is from kits2remember. I love this flourish. I stamped the pumpkins on to a transparency and then colored them in with my markers.

The ghosts are stamped on a transparency as well and then painted with Making Memories pearlized paint. I then used a sharpie and traced the stamp on the backside of the image that way it looks the same from both sides.

I love how a little bit peeks over from the previous page. While working with the album I try and add a little bit to each side of the page so it adds some depth to it.
I added a cat sticker to each side layered together. So it appears to be the same cat.

supplies: Doodlebug, Creative Imaginations, Scrapworks, Making Memories, Reminisce pattern papers, Thats Jazzy Stamp Dreams (pumpkin, spider, ghost) and kits2remember (flourish) stamps, American Craft thickers, Lil' Davis chipboard tile alphas, Stazon ink, kits2remember 8x8 acrylic album, Scrapworks stickers, Making Memories paint, transparency, ribbon
I hope you will join us this week at Scrap and Stamp! I can't wait to see what you come up with.
