Halloween Castle with Mini Album

Hi everyone, long time no post. I have been here, just busy. We were in Florida at Disney World the last time I posted. We had an awesome time. We visited all of the parks, took in the Not so Scary Halloween party at MK one evening, and went to the Black Stallion dinner show the last night we were there. We all trick or treated during the Not so Scary Halloween party and came home with 10 lbs of candy. I never seen so many people in costumes in one place before.  Everyone was dressed up, I don't even know how many people were at MK that night.  But it was so cool.  We did not take any costumes with us, so I had to throw something together for my daughter. We got her face painted at Hollywood studios, and she already picked out a sundress for a souvenir. So this is what we came up with.

There were a lot of characters doing signings that night, and when we walked up to Buzz Light Year, he made a gesture like a cat and had her do the same so I could get a picture.  I thought it was pretty cool of him to do that. The Pic turned out cute.

Anyhoo, I have been creating off and on and wanted to share with you a castle I made that holds a mini album.  I got the pattern off of Laura Denison from Following the Paper Trail.  I used her pattern for the castle, but decided to use my Gypsy and cricut for the mini.  It was going to save a lot of measuring and cutting.

Here is the finished project

The Mini fits inside the castle. 

Here is the mini, it has 5 pages all with the same format.  On the back of each page is a pocket for holding a tag. 

On each page the sides flip open to reveal a spot for 3 pic, or journaling. I created this file on my gypsy using George, and Ribbons and Rosettes(this was used for the fence across the top, but you could substitute any
edge cut for the fence. 

This project was super fun to do, and if you would like the pattern could be purchased here.  I do not get any monetary gain from this, I just love her patterns.

Until next time, Beth
