Halloween Memory Album

Here's another fun project that had to be completed before Halloween. It is being given to my Niece for her 3 girls (my Grand Nieces)! There are 3 inserts within this album:one for each girl! This project was made by using Black envelopes to hold the photos. This is the 4th envelope album I have posted. See 9/17 Halloween Envelope Album and 8/10, 8/11 Things I love Album previously posted. No Velcro used!!! The construction of the closure is the same as albums previously posted: by using dimensionals! Hah! Finished size of this album is: 5" x 4-1/4" x 1/4". Here's the front of the Album cover.

Close-up of the album front: I added Googlie eyes to all the characters.
