Creative Belli Challenge 102 - Pumpkins/Fall

Hello there! Hope you are having a wonderful week so far. Today we have a brand new challenge for you over at the Creative Belli Challenge. Our challenge this week is pumpkins or fall, and if you are feeling up for the "twist" add the sketch in too. You can find the sketch over at the Creative Belli Blog. I decided to just go with the theme this time and opt. out of the sketch. I thought it would be fun to make a little Halloween photo album. I used my Cricut Create a Critter cartridge to cut some chipboard pumpkins out. Then, I pulled out some really really old PP (use up what you have! That is the idea behind the Belli Challenge) and CS, and cut some more pumpkins to go over the chipboard. Actually my chipboard is "old" too...and well I guess it really isn't even chipboard...lol. It is pieces of cardboard from my mother's work...lol. They were just going to recycle it anyway, so she brings it home to me for mini albums, and patterns. Anyway...I used some solid CS for some of the pages, and some of the Halloween PP from the Target $1 spot (a few years ago) for the other pages. For the cover I also added some old heat set gems I had, and I used some stickers I have had for a while too. Here is a view of the "front" side of the pages. And the back cover and back side of the pages... I also added some ribbon from my stash to the binder ring for color and cause I really like the way that looks on mini albums...lol. Here is one of the pages that I am going to use for my youngest daughter. She is going to be Jessie from Toy Story. I found some Toy Story stickers back in the spring, and bought them because they were on sale. Well I have not touched them yet...lol. But they were on sale so I had to buy them. What a great way to use some of them! Now...I am on a mission to find stickers for my other girls' pages. I need Harry Potter stickers, and Incredibles stickers. If you know of a place I can get them PLEASE leave me a comment and let me know!
Now, I just need to wait for Halloween to fill in this adorable little mini album.

It is your turn now! We want to see what you can come up with for our theme and sketch (optional) this week. Head on over to the Creative Belli Challenge and see what the other ladies have come up with too. Don't forget to play along, and link your project to the bottom of Post 102! Thanks for stopping by!

Very cute Jess! I'm thinking maybe you need to find some pictures on the internet, print them out small, cut them and us a Xyron to make them into stickers. I have never seen any Harry stickers anywhere.

Very cool idea. Awesome way to create the photo album. The gold brads make the difference in this pumpkin. Love the idea to make a man out of the pumpkin as well.
