Halloween book

This is the front of the Halloween book that we did at the beach. The book is an 8x8 size. The silver decorations on the left are a headband that I found at the Dollar Tree. The books we did were all different. Mine has more of a spooky Halloween look. I used a Tim Holtz clip and wired and glued a spooky hand to the clip and added a spider sticker. The Halloween ticket is a Tim Holtz stamp. The booklet is inside of a slide which had a skull on a stickpin. The paper that are Halloween papers were in a pack of Fall and Halloween papers and the name of the company that made them is lost because the front cover was thrown away before I remembered to look at the name of it.

This is the booklet on the front page.

This is the booklet on the front page opened up.

This is page one. The cat is from a pack of Dollar Tree Halloween decorations. The Scaredy cat is from Crafty Secrets.

These are the mats behind the cat on page one. The old hag is a digital graphic and the stamp of the moon is an Inkadinkado stamp. I will use the back of the mats for pictures of us at the beach.

This is page 2 closed. The paper is Grapics 45.
The small picture is from Crafty Secrets.

This is page 2 opened to reveal a Tim Holtz grunge board cat.

This is page 3 with Graphics 45 papers, Crafty Secrets cat and a button from my friend, Claudia.

This is page 4 closed.

This is page 4 open to reveal a raven from the Dollar Tree decorations.

This is what is in the pocket of page 4. I will use pictures of us at the beach on the mats and cards on this page.

Booklet on page 4 opened and another mat.

Tags, ATC, and mats on page 4.

Page 5 has a Martha Steward fence that I learned after I made this page needs to be backed with a sheet of paper if you are going to use it as a pocket in order to keep the fence from being torn.

A flower clip with a picture attached and another mat on page 5.

More mats on page 5. I will probably use these for pictures too.

Page 6 has a tree from some more of the Dollar Tree Decorations.

Page 6 opens to reveal Tim Holtz papers and a vampire.

Page 7 is on Tim Holtz paper and is a grungeboard scene from Tim Holt that has been inked and embossed with glittery bats.

Page 8 has a spooky haunted house scene and a rat from the Dollar Tree decorations and a flower clip.

Page 8 opens to reveal a booklet that will hold journaling of our beach trip.

Page 8's booklet has some stamps from my friend, Jean and some are Inkadinkado stamps.

The back of the book has a stamped Skeleton from Stampland that appears to be resting on the spiderweb paper.
