Hi all!!! I hope you are having a fabulous week - I can't believe it's already Wednesday, this week is flying by! I have been super busy getting ready for yet another craft show, class, and workshop this weekend! And, I am still fighting this awful sinus infection, although I am hoping I am on the downhill side of it now. Sheesh - three rounds of antibiotics and it's STILL here! I don't have time to be sick, lol! I have a super cute Halloween mini book class on Friday night (if you are local and want to attend, I still have a few seats left) and so I thought I would give you a peek at the cover - I can't show you all the pages until after the class since they paid for it :-) I used the Pick Your Poison Designer Series Paper and the Piece of Poison stamp set from the Holiday mini - both are so much fun!! It's a 6x6 mini chipboard book, and has twelve pages chock full of fun images, embellies, and of course places to put those special Halloween pictures!  It is held together by metal rings decorated with lots and lots of our ribbon(not shown here). There are four images featured here from the stamp set including the title.  The spiderweb is stamped in Basic Gray classic ink and the spider is stamped over top of it in Black Stazon on Naturals Ivory card stock. That fun accordion flower was super easy to make using my Simply Scored, which you can also find in the Holiday mini.  If you don't have  this tool, you NEED one - it is soooo fabulous and opens up a whole new way of doing all your scoring quickly, and accurately! The skeleton is stamped in Black Stazon on Peach Parfait card stock that was distressed using my distresser tool, then sponged with black ink. The title is stamped in Black Stazon on Naturals Ivory card stock that has been sponged with Peach Parfait classic ink.  And, you know me and my pennants, I had to do it again, lol! It is mounted on dimensionals so give some added depth to the cover. The ribbon is Peach Parfait twill ribbon - love it!!! So, this is just the cover - imagine what is on the inside!! *wink* Once I have held the class, I will show you all the fun pages inside :-) If you NEED any of these products featured here (and you know you do heeheee!) you can purchase them in my online store or contact me and I will be happy to place the order for you!  And remember, you can still take this class if you are local, just give me a shout and I will reserve you a spot! Today is laundry day so I will be doing some fun crafty projects in between folding and putting away, lol! Have a wonderful day and make sure you take some time to be creative, it's good for the heart :-)
