wallet mini FREAKS

this little baby is made from ONE SHEET of double-sided patterned paper!! i used it w/ some wallet photos of the kids' Olin Mills portrait session this July.

this is my first project for Scrapfreak as their Guest Designer for the month of November. i used "cosmo cricket Lil' Man dapper dan" paper, but i am planning on using some of the YUMMY "PINK PAISLEE Mistletoe and Co." papers for some Christmas gifts! (there are 7 pockets in this little baby, perfect for holding photos, tags, gift cards, or even cash!)

here is the tutorial:

treats :)

we all had such a sweet little halloween night. it was perfect weather (which is crazy b/c our weather has been INSANE lately!) it was all just so perfect. silas was optimus prime (transformers) and eli was a paleontologist. their choices suited them both so perfectly. lol

also, here is the layout i completed for the current Scrap That Poetry challenge blog :) The poem is "Where the Sidewalk Ends", and we'd love to see your take on the prompt! The DT's work is outstanding, and so diverse! I always love seeing the different directions everyone takes from the same poem. Awesome! Come and play along...there is a RAK!! ;)
