Thankful Thursday Design Team Bloghop

Little Monsters!  (The cute little purple monster picture won't download to my hubby's computer -long story why I can't use mine.  For some reason his computer isn't compatible for a lot of the things I like to do!)

We all have 'em.  Kids, dogs, husbands, etc.  The ones that drive us nuts that we wouldn't give up for a bazillion bucks.

I made this adorable little mini to keep in my purse for the times that I'm NOT there with my kids.  Nursing the youngest two, that kinda makes us buddies so on the rare occasions I get a break, I actually DO miss my kids.

Well, because of them and the wonderful theme that Jenny came up with, here we are!

This is your typical 3x3 mini wandering album made by 1 sheet of 12x12 paper.  All the paper used in this, I had from my stack so long ago.  I couldn't tell you the paper if I wanted to- it's been over 6 years.  (I hoard paper, what's it to you??)

So, if you're here from Sandra's Blog then you're DEFINITELY in the right place.  If not, start over at Jenny's Blog Here  And just in case you get lost along the way, here's the line up.  I'm last, but hopefully NOT least!!

Don't forget- you could win My Memories Suite Software!  Just comment on everyone's project and Jenny will add you to the drawing!  Now, without further ado, here's what I did:

This is what I used.  (Sorry, no tutorial this time.  NO time this week to get it done!)
12x12 sheet of paper,
recycled box for lid.
halloween paper.
Recollections stamps that were on clearance
googly eyes
tacky glue
ATG gun
stamp pads (that I used with a marker to blend and "color" in the monsters)
1 action wobble that is on the front and you can't tell because it's a stationary picture.  Sorry!

score the paper at 3,6, and 9 inches.  flip 90 degrees and repeat.  On the top and bottom score lines, cut to the 9" mark.  on the middle score line, cut from the opposite side of the page to the 3" score mark.  Accordion fold and atg it in place leaving "pockets" for you to put tags in.

I stamped in the pages the various little monsters and will be adding pictures to it later.  I think it came out really cute!

Thanks for hopping with us!  I appreciate it!!  Leave me some love people.  I have a HUGE announcement coming in a few days!
