Happy Halloween with LYB

I made this Halloween Album using all LYB Booville halloween collection. The album is 4x9 and turned out very chunky. I love chunky albums.  Even when I dont try to make my albums chunky, they turn out that way LOL.

Little Yellow Bicycle Halloween Album

I used the black chipboard pumpkin from LYB and sanded it - I wanted to make the pumpkin look more grunge versus shiney and new.

Most of the pages were made with the LYB envelopes.  I placed large tags inside the pockets

This page has a "floating matte" I do this by adhering mounting tape on three sides and leaving the top open in order to slip tags behind the photo matte

I added some dimensional "googly" eyes that I bought from Michael's.  I added the googly eyes because the dotted pattern paper made me think of monster eyes.

When you use an entire collection from a manufacturer it makes it sooo easy to design a layout or an album.  The work of matching paper and embellishments is already done for you.  I usually like to mix and match my embellies and paper from different manufacturers, but when you are pressed for time and need to make a project fairly quickly; go ahead and use a collection.  While you are at it, you might as well plan on 2 projects because most likely you will have lots of embellishments left over from your embellishment packs.  Happy Halloween!
