Hi everyone :-)
Here is the Halloween mini album I made for the configuration box.
Used different Halloween papers from recollections to make this photo album.
Got this papers and accessories from my sweet friend Velma. I am so happy and grateful for all this goodies you sent me and this made it possible for me to make this fun album :-)

Video where I also tell a spooky adventure story for the album :-)

 Here is how it started,
Made the configuration box out of chipboard and used Tim Holtz black crackle paint all over.
All the pages are double sides and made out of black Bazzill cardstock.
Fastened each page with hinges to each other cut at 1 3/8 and scored at 1/2 inch on each side. The album measure 4 1/2 x 4 hay on the front and 9 x 11 hay on the largest parts.

Made this album so it can be displayed on a Halloween table.
This is a 2 sided album and there are pockets on the side and top on each page to hold more photo mats.
