SP & Company Group Post Wednesday!

Happy Wednesday!

We're halfway through the week already.  I can't believe my baby girl is turning TWO this week.  Where has time gone?! Since it seems like time flies, before we know it, Halloween will be here! I am being very pro-active this year - I already have my Halloween foundation pages done for my album! We haven't even decided on costumes yet and I'm done - this is a FIRST (and probably a LAST, too!).  I figured I could share my empty album with you today.  Once it's done, I'll post that, too, so you can see what changed and what was added.  I just LOVE Halloween (the time of year, the colors, the same month as my birthday, the HARVEST MOONS...), so I'm always picking up more Halloween stamps and embellies, so I know I will find something else that will be added to these pages!

The album I found at Michael's (Recollections) two years ago right after I had my daughter.  I was on maternity leave and I loved being home, taking her out places with me to kill time during the day.  I was already brainwashing her into becoming a scrapper (I'm still working on that, BTW).

I thought it would be fun to add tabs to the pages, too.  I love the look of tabs (which is odd since the print shop I work in deals with them on a daily basis, so you'd think I'd hate them by now?!).

I used a q-tip to add the 'mist' behind the monster!

The "You're a Star" sentiment is perfect for Halloween pictures.  No matter what my kids end up dressing up as, they will pose for pictures and think they are celebrities, so it's a great sentiment to use for a book like this one.  It's from the SP and Company Bold Sentiments I set.  I pretty much use this set on a daily basis.

A little close up:

I also used the frame from Sewing Chic from SP and Company for this page.  LOVE.  There are so many uses for this that are non-sewing related.  Heck, if used with the right colors, you could even make this work on a masculine card!

It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!!!

I used some green paint on black stock for this page. I like how it looks like it's glowing or even slime!!!!

I can't wait for Halloween to come so I can take pictures and fill this guy up!
