Your Halloween Mini Scrapbook Photo Album in 2hrs!

Halloween is coming and with it tons of photos. The problem is, once you ate the candy and took the photos, no one feels like putting them in a decent album, and so you miss on a lot of memories as they stay locked in one of your computer files, never to be seen.

So here are some solutions for you:
  1. Choose your photos carefully. Try to choose ones that are telling the story of this Halloween for your family or, if you're a brave scrapbooker who designs a mini album for each one of your kids, choose the photos that tell the story of each kid.
  2. Go through your scrapbook supplies and get all the purple, orange and black papers out. Get all Halloween embellishments on the work table as well.
  3. Save some candy rappers (not the sticky ones), napkins, pieces of decoration to enhance your mini scrapbook album.
  4. Pick a 6" album (I find them to work well for both wallet AND standard size photos) and decide on a one, common, uniting layout to use through your scrapbook mini album.
  5. Glue glue glue.
  6. Embellish, journal and enjoy!

Below are some ideas for Halloween layouts:

Have a spooky-sweet one...
