So instead I did a Halloween mini book for the October week 3 challenge over on UKScrappers.co.uk. The challenge was to use Halloween colours, an unused stamp and one photo of a non standard size. A mini book with one photo was a challenge so I filled the pages with a poem and a load of Jolees stickers. I used WRMK papers, some metal charms, American Crafts ribbons and the base was a Clearscraps acrylic house album. Now, I was going to leave part of this clear but after an unfortunate incident involving some alcohol inks I was left with a sickly brown acrylic shape (and table and fingernails) so I ended up covering it all up with paper, but I think it looks okay.
Here is the rest of the album.
Hope you like it and thanks for looking.
Happy scrapping to you all.

First, here is a piccie of some of the papers I chose.
Hopefully you can see the bits and pieces that had already been cut out of them by my dear daughter (and used to decorate her dolls' house!). Well, I chopped what was left into strips and just went for laying the strips out to echo the grass skirt my other dear daughter (and her horse) is wearing in the photo. The picture is terrible quality - couldn't find my good photo paper at first, and now it's run out of ink so I can't reprint. It's of a competition at my daughter's old riding school where you had to dress up your pony. She and her pony wore matching grass skirts and leis and she won first prize, even beating the pony painted to look like a zebra which I thought was pretty neat. Oh, and if you ever need a grass skirt to fit a pony, believe it or not I have one!
Off to go and drool over the next prompt.
Happy scrapping everyone.

So here's my entry - the journalling is pants as I'm not sure when or where the photos were taken (must ask the inlaws). The wonderful ferris wheel came from Monica's Creative Room - she has some wonderful cut files and is a very talented lady - much more than I am!
