"Halloween paper bag album"

This is a paper bag album. I am going to develp the pictures of my Halloween decorations this year and crafts that I have made and put them in this little book. I bought the paper bag album off of ebay last year. I used Daisy D Halloween paper kits that I purchased a Hobby Lobby years ago when they were 50% off. I made the tags with pieces of embellishments that I have collected over the years. I love the vintage images from Crafty Secrets. I hate that Daisy D is no longer making papers and kits. I loved their vintage images and feel to their line of products.
Let me know what you think about my try at a paper bag album. I still want to do a waterfall paper bag album like I saw on Paula Clare's blog. Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to hearing from you. I am working on a few more Halloween craft ideals that I have seen on other blogs. I hope to get them done and I have also starting gathering my supplies for Christmas crafting.
Have a wonderful week!

Hi Lynn,
I'm just about to run out the door but wanted to answer your question real quick. Where I live there is a specialty candy store called Cuties, that sells candy by the pound, in rows and rows of bins.
So if you can find a specialty candy store in your neck of the woods maybe they would carry them there.
Good luck! : )
Have a great day,
Mary Lou

What a great paper bag album! As you know, I LOVE making paper bag albums! I am quite disappointed to hear that Daisy D is no longer making paper! I loved their patterned paper! I am in the middle of answering your email!

This album is really cute, and I admire those of you that have a real knack for paper crafting! I've tried a few tags, but I guess I just don't have the imagination for it. Hope you're having a good week!

That is a new idea for me. I would have never thought of it. I am sorry to read about your back issues. Back problems are the worst and not a great deal to help. You are much too young for that.

I'd never heard of a paper bag album before either. Now I want one! --sigh-- I'll add it to my list. I think OI still have some spare time between 4 and 5 in the morning! :) It looks wonderful, a nice vintage feel, plenty of room for ephemera too.
