Hist and Hark Halloween Mini

Hello My Crafty Friends.

Today I am sharing my very first Design Team Project for a fantastic Challenge Group.

Re-cycle, Re-Purpose and Re-Invent.

I am such a hoarder of all sorts of items from softdrink can ring pulls, to cereal boxes 
and everything in between.
So what a perfect group to to use some of my hidden goodies.

I am so honoured to be part of this team and work along side such lovely ladies.
Oh, and did I mention we are having a blog hop.

But first, my first project for Re-cycle, Re-Purpose and Re-Invent.

I made this mini album almost entirely from recycled materials and objects.

I used several (well 7) images from CS Designs.
The papers were free halloween printables - just search free halloween papers 
and they will pop right up.

Aren't the images just amazing.

Now, to the fantastic blog hop.

To help us Celebrate the grand re-opening on Recycle, Re-Purpose and Re-Invent. 

There are 7 blogs participating in this Hop and 6 Great Prizes to win. Because we want you to become acquainted with our  fabulous new team you must  visit and leave a comment on Every Participating Project Post along the way in order to be eligible to win any of our prizes.

  1. Loving your journal. Great colours used and love the images.
    Happy crafting, Angela x.

  2. Angela, Fabulous Album, love it. You did a fantastic job with the colors. I would love to know what you used as a foundation to make this and was also wondering what you used as netting behind the Bride of Frankenstein. It makes for a really cool texture.

    If this comment goes through this time, it means that your comments are working again and everyone will be able to leave you a little love and appreciation.
