Halloween!! Day 31 of 31 Days of Halloween (LeighSB Designs Hop) - Countdown to Halloween


   During October you will see many Halloween-y projects on my blog as I am joining in with





So let's celebrate Halloween!! 

As usual I will add daily retro Halloween postcards from Vintage Image Craft.



Today I am sharing my final additions to pages in my Halloween album. It's Halloween so I am going to call it finished!


This started with a couple of black 'manila' folders. Having formed the pages and pockets I covered them with Stampin Up papers.

I wasn't happy with the flap made by this haunted house - so I added some embellishments, Gecko Galz images and sentiments:



 

I couldn't finish without a sighting of Poe...


An ATC and sentiment again using items from Gecko Galz

I printed out some more Leigh's Stack o Carved Pumpkins for this page in two sizes, coloured them and cut them out. The ATC used a Gecko Galz ATC background.



Finally I had a lot of those Kate Crane Kooky Cats stamped and coloured with markers. Once cut out I added them to a black pebble embossed background...



I will add this page to Leigh's linky!

As I have used a rubber stamp for this I would also like to add this to the




This is the final view of my album...




Yesterday we went to Pt Leo winery where they have a sculpture park. I thought these two were pretty spooky...



Happy Halloween!!




And as always I like to add the skeletons hopping!


Happy Halloween 🎃👻!

Today I am sharing more additions to pages in my Halloween album.


This started with a couple of black 'manila' folders.
Having formed the pages and pockets I covered them with Stampin Up papers.


I quite like the cat/pumpkin paper as itself but journals like these are never finished...

I made some ATCs - black base layer, Gelli Pull  background stamped with Stampin Up stamps and followed with metallic penwork.


I added the two I liked the best to my page...
I will add this page to Leigh's linky!

Our Song/Rhyme this fortnight is from Margaret

(How Much Is) That Doggie in the Window?

Song by Patti Page
How much is that doggie in the window?
The one with the waggly tail
How much is that doggie in the window?
I do hope that doggie's for sale
I must take a trip to California
And leave my poor sweetheart alone
If he has a dog, he won't be lonesome
And the doggie will have a good home
How much is that doggie in the window?
The one with the waggly tail
How much is that doggie in the window?
I do hope that doggie's for sale
I read in the papers there are robbers
With flashlights that shine in the dark
My love needs a doggie to protect him
And scare them away with one bark
I don't want a bunny or a kitty
I don't want a parrot that talks
I don't want a bowl of little fishies
He can't take a goldfish for a walk
How much is that doggie in the window?
The one with the waggly tail
How much is that doggie in the window?
I do hope that doggie's for sale

Yesterday I shared the cover of an altered book. I was inspired by something my friends in the UK were making at their retreat.


 Now I will share the inside...

First I decorated some little glass bottles with





Then having cut out the inside pages I added decorations:


The witch is pretty special as it belonged to my Mum...


I have added Leigh's Stack o carved pumpkins, coloured and cut out.


The gothic lady in the frame came from a freebie in the current Gecko Galz hop





 
I will add this project to Leigh's linky!
