Halloween Mini Altered Board Book

It's that time of year again!! I LOVE Halloween!! I have ever since I was a little kid. So, when the gals over at Boston Scrap Fanatics decided to do a Halloween mini swap, I was totally in. We each got paired up with another person. I know the person that I got loves vintage things, so I HAD to get the Graphic 45 Happy Haunting 8x8 stack and chipboard embellies for this project, even though I have a TON of Halloween stuff already. Just ask Laurie. We kind of went on a Halloween binge a couple of years ago and split the haul. Hee hee.

I started out with a plain white board book, like this one, but mine has 14 pages including the covers. I did mix in some other papers from my stash with the G45 papers. I tried to put some kind of interactive element on each page. I drew a lot of inspiration from the Halloween mini that I got from our friend Rhonda over at Scrap Happens. I need to take pictures of the album that she sent me, too - it is awesome!

This whole album took me a couple of weeks to complete because I could only work on it here and there. I hope my swap buddy likes it as much as I like creating it!
