Pumpkin Album COMPLETE!

TAADAA!!!  Here is my completed Vala's Pumpkin Patch album.  I was so excited to put this little gem together.  I covered the album early in the fall in preparation for one of our favorite annual fall traditions of multiple trips to our STELLAR local pumpkin patch.  This is a My Monster Creations pumpkin album.  So, without further ado...HERE IT IS!!!

 Front cover which includes an acrylic cover.
Inside front cover and front side of the first Tim Holtz Grungeboard sheet (cut to fit) that I added in between each page of the original book.  This was to allow for more pictures and keep sakes.  I was able to fit a total of 31 or 32 wallet sized pictures in this perfect little book!  Love the texture of the metal circle clip, burlap, felt leaves, and a Tim Holtz Journaling ticket.
Flip side of the first grunge and second page of the actual book.  The little tree was cut with my Cricut.
Back side of page two of the actual book and the front of the second grunge board page.  Little pumpkins cut out with my Cricut.
Flip side of second grunge page and page three of the book. Another metal circle clip to hold some of the keepsakes of our season pass and a copy of the map/brochure for the 2010 season.  Love sliding journal tags and an extra picture behind other photo mats...
Back side of page three of the book and front of the third piece of grunge.  The cute little pony was cut using my Cricut.
Back side of the third piece of grunge and the final page of the actual book. 
The back cover of the book.

I am so pleased with this little book!  It's the perfect supplement to the numerous 2 page layouts that I made of this years pumpkin patch experience.  It was very fun to create and I will cherish it forever!  I hope you guys like it!  If you swing over to My Monster Creations, please let Amy know that Shelly sent you.  

I hope you are all finding time to love, create, and laugh!

Welcome 2011

Hello my friends! 

The plan; to post some of my crafty creations very soon.  I finished up my Pumpkin Patch mini album and it turned out SO CUTE!  Then of course I had to make an equally adorable mini album for our Christmas pictures, this particular mini album isn't very mini at all.  I can't wait to show that as well...and a few other little projects I've been obsessing over.  Have any of you gotten into toilet paper roll mini albums?  They're addictive!  I've made THREE in the past couple of weeks.  Two of which I didn't take a single picture of, DOH!  They were gifts.  The third is also a gift to one of my scrapping buddies who's birthday was January 1st.  It is however still in my possession (until we crop this Friday) so I will try to remember to take some pictures before then...

Here's to a terrific 2011 to all of us!  Be sure to focus some energy on loving, creating, and laughing.

Peace and love to you all!
