The LIttle Halloween Book I Made For My Mom

I got the images off of the internet. Just Google "free (that's important!)vintage Halloween images" and most of the ones I've used and some others are available. I print mine at 4x6 which is best for the sharpness, I think. Like I'm a real visual GENIUS!
The paper is from the "Midnight Magic" pad by Recollections, available at Michael's. I also used a little bit of ribbon for the minimal embellishments. The paper pad has two sheets of die-cuts that I also enjoyed using in the mini-book.
I particpiated in my first blog hop this evening featuring Skipping Stones Design and I had a blast. Those girls are amazing designers and some new Pretend Friends. Check it out at the blog of my new Pretendie, Just Jingle!
Oh - I have a love affair going with Elmer's Craft Bond adhesive. It's sold in a big ol' can like WD-40 and it is the best glue going for chipboard. I use it all the time now for my mini-books and find the bond to be ultra-smooth. CraftBond is pretty tenacious, and if you're using a lot of it you may end up bonding your shoes to your scraproom floor. To control the spew of the glue - use a box to do your spritzing, much like one of those boxes for misting. You can make your own - I'm told that you can get boxes at the liquor store.........
To remove CraftBond from your work space, spray it with WD-40. Let it sit for a moment, then wipe off. For your fingers, try nail polish remover for those sticky spots.
Have a great day. I'm off to do the Samantha Walker blog hop. This is fun! It's a great way to "meet" new people and see others' work - as well as showcase some of your own.
