Celebrating the Return of Haunted Hump Day with a Swap!

Hard to believe
but it is that magical, wonderful
time of year again
when our thoughts turn to
& Halloween swaps!

These are pictures of a swap I took part in
a few years ago.
 I love each artists
depiction of Halloween
 and the different mediums used
 and all the fabulous embellishments.
 In each pocket we placed
handmade tags and cards.
 Not only do these turn out great
but they're inexpensive and easy.
 Your "page" is simply a brown paper lunch bag
folded in half.
After decorating the front, back and inside
the pages are layered together.
holes punched,
and bound.
This swap is open for signups in
And one of my blog friends
who keeps me inspired
all season long
is Marfi,
 the hostess of Haunted Hump Day.

Love your Halloween paper bag book, it's a brilliant way of remembering the holiday. It sounds a similar idea to the circle journals I've taken part in where you pass it around and everyone decorates a page. Thanks for sharing.
