Happy Halloween!!!

Is everyone ready for some Halloween fun? I know that I sure am! I am looking forward to all the fun projects and pages that will be getting created in the days and weeks to come. Since my kids are all grown up now, I miss the fun in gathering items for making costumes and all the decisions that go along with that. I used to love planning out with the kids what they would like to be for Halloween and watching them come up with some great ideas for creating them. We never took money for all the fancier store bought costumes. Instead it was more fun to put on our creative thinking caps and seeing what we could come up with. Not only did they look great, but we made some great memories of the fun we had doing it.

Since the time has come for all ghouls and goblins to come out for trick or treating, I thought it would be fun to share a project I have been working on in honour of this fun day! It has been quite a while since I was able to sit and just create something fun and for ME, and I was beginning to think that it might never happen again! Alas, it did, and I had so much fun with this project. I can't wait to put all the finishing touches on it, but that is going to have to wait until the photos are printed and put in.

Once I have hunted down and reprinted the photos that I want for this album, I will be adding more ribbon and more detail to each of the pages. In most cases, the photos are going to need to be adhered before I can do that!

For this project, I used the Bo Bunny Whoo-ligans line! This line is so much fun with all the dressed up kids, the fun colour combination and the fun theme. I knew that I would just have to use it for something, and glad I finally could sit down to play with it. I love the 2 sided paper and really how easy it makes it for putting together a project like this. Simple, sometimes, is best! With it being so quick and easy to do, it was a great place for me to start to getting back into 'me' creating again. It feels so good to have finished with a project so quickly and I can't wait to keep this ball rolling.

Mini albums are a great project to create for many different things. I love doing them for small events, day trips, even for gift giving. I love how quickly they can be put together and how satisfying it is to finish a great project.
