A mini using the Swirlydoos Sweetest Thing Kit

Happy Halloween everyone! Hope you all have a safe and exciting night. We plan on taking the kids Trick or Treating. Only the two younger ones are going to dress-up. Delilah as Little Red Riding Hood and Elijah as a Ninja. I tried to convince the boy to be the wolf, but  he!

Today I'm sharing a mini I made using the Swirlydoos October Kit, Sweetest Thing. I love this kit! It mostly consist of BoBunny The Avenues. Such pretty paper!

Here is the front cover. The album measures about 5 x5 and is made out of chipboard.
 Here are the first two pages. I cut out the door from one of the papers. I  folded the ends and glued them down so they can be opened.
 Here are the 3rd and 4th page. I made a fold down page on the left.
 See, it folds open!
 Here are the last two pages.  I added a little Maya Road envelope that holds tags. And on the left I made a pocket to hold the large journaling tag,
 The back
 Here is a side view of the spine. I punched two holes and laced in some seam binding. I put the BoBunny sparkly brads in the holes to give the finishing touch.
 This photo is just to show the thickness of the mini with all the yummy embellies!
Hope you like my mini! Thanks for taking a peek!
