BOO....halloween banner...LOVE IT!

So...if you really know know I LOVE's my favorite holiday. Even over Christmas (which i really don't like at all). Earlier this year I got a black bench & black mirror...for the hallway...they just were calling out for some halloween deco. I used a tea dyed mesh to drape around it (will add some leaves/spiders later)...put a vinyl spider up on mirror & put this banner up. Learned technique from Tresa Black!

MY new love...Work In Progress Album

There it is. Nothing fancy. No decoration, No bells & whistles. It's a big 3 ring binder that has rings to line up with my CTMH page protectors. It slides into a sleeve to keep it from falling, etc. Anyways...I put ALL my extra page protectors including photo know the ones that hold 4-6 photos not scrapbook pages. Then....I took my photos to be scrapped & organized them. I put a piece of white daisy cardstock in a PP (Page protector) and put the photos for the layout in the pp with it. so they are all sorted & ready to be scrapped! NICE!

Clear Card W/ Olivia paper & The Present

The quote on this is fantastic...about today being your 'present'
I used staz on to ink up the metal tag, added two leaves & a button

Front View. edges inked w/ staz on.

see how dimensional...and i used new mocha i believe.

and of course...a nice spot in side for a note!

SO...excited I finally got my new CLOSE TO MY HEART stuff!! Click on link there for new idea book. I have only played with the stuff for a little bit. I used a new CLEAR CARD and OLIVIA paper pack & THE PRESENT stamp set. They are SO SO fun & great for fall!!

SO Lucky...

This page turned out better & worse than i had imagined. I really liked the the title worked...up until I added "to have u". I should have left it off or used a smaller font...but too late now!

i used my cricut to cut some scalloped flowers (cirlces)....and cut slits to the center on each bump..does that make sense? Inked, rolled & voila!
