"Authentique" Halloween Mini Album (BM DT Project)

I just love the new AUTHENTIQUE Collections... all of them are AMAZING-GORGEOUS and so I thought I'd create a fun mini album project using one of the collection!!

But first... I have to say.. i LOVED loved this project :) I used the Glowing collection that is really halloween-vintage looking and --crazy FUN to create with.. YEP.. There was no holding back! My scissors, glue stick, and cutting knive were all howling with creative speed! All the great bold prints, colors, die cuts .. oh my!  My desk is a SPOOKLY mess and I love it! Ok.. enough rambling..  I had such a great time creating this 'WICKEDLY FUN' mini album!! All the AUTHENTIQUE products I used can be found at BlueMoon Scrapbooking!  

 And one more thing:

I know you can make a mini album too! Just try it!! You'll LOVE IT!
