More October Afternoon goodies!

I’m here! I’m here!!

A couple weeks ago, I started this project using the October Afternoon goodies in the Alternate Kit from Life Preservers. I finally got a chance to work on it again.

I perused the local thrift shop and found this old book for 50 cents! I loved the theme of the cover and thought it would be perfect for a mini I wanted to do using my school photos.





After removing the pages from the book, I used my Crop-O-dile, to punch holes.




Here are some of the pages. I am missing photos from a few years. I will add more pages as I aquire those photos.








a close up of a few of the techniques I used.


non kit items used: cork stickers, metal charm, letter pebbles, acrylic letters, trim, lable holder, punches, marker, Distress Ink, stitching, Distress paints, cardboard, stickles, chipboard, gemstones, pearls, felt, burlap, buttons, staples, badges, tab, coffee cup coaster, floss, grunge paper, rubons
