Something Else again....

 2nd paper bag album
This one is 4x5 
and will be perfect for my ACEO Collection

 all the pages have a pocket 
with a card stock insert 

 I really like the neutral paper
the varied ACEOs 
will really be the focus

Couldn't resist adding a couple leaves 

Decided to bind it all with hemp
and it worked out! 
The bow is totally unneccessary
and I am not sure I'll keep it.

Something else...

My First Album
made from paper lunch bags

 I saw one made where the bottoms of the bags are glued together and make little flaps 
or pockets inside the album.

The bags provide an accordion effect that allows 
for bulk inside the album without strain on the binding.

Yes Blue is my favorite color
so I went with a winter theme.

Here you can see the ribbon I used to bind the bags together to make the book.

I used 6 lunch bags 

In pairs

Back of the book
Here you can see a little of the binding. 
That part took me awhile to figure out.

I am happy I gave this a try and even started another one that I like a lot better.

 Trick or Treat
not me 
way too spooky here
and I don't like that ax

neighborhood haunting :D

I'm getting used to the eyes that glow...

Trick or Treat 4
always wondered about 
Halloween at the Lighthouse
like that orange glow!

What's up with all those glowing eyes?

yes they filmed Halloween Town right here
and this is town square
well...I had to add the cemetery 
for ambiance

BLAH! He vants to drink your blood! 
Relax - he casts a shadow 
no threat here!

I like Halloween
(can you tell?)
love to see the kiddos 
and see what the popular costume is

Nothing like a teenie weenie 
painting to mark the season

School Bus?

headed off to learn
all about being 
a bug

baby caterpillars 
hitching a ride
