A Halloween Slider Card Challenge

Hello and WELCOME!!  You have pounced upon our blog hop for October!!  My little Lion is all dressed up for Halloween and ready to show you some fun on my blog.  Our Pride has been busy, busy, busy creating our Halloween projects to share with you!  You should have reached me from RJ's blog.  If you pounced upon this blog hop by happenstance, the beginning is with Elsa on her blog here.  At the bottom of the post I have a full line up of my Den Brother and Sisters just in case you get lost along the way.  I'm Michelle, and I am glad that you are here!! 
Please welcome the new Cub in our Pride!  A huge Roar and Welcome to Yvette!!!  I am so glad you joined our Den!!!

For October, the challenge was to create a slider card.  So, using this tutorial from Split Coast Stampers, here is what I came up with.
 The paper line I chose was by Echo Park, Chillingsworth Manor.  I love the colors in it!  I added a spider by Jolee's and some Recollections bling.  The hand came from Michaels, and I added a "ring" that was actually a brad that I wrapped around the finger.
 This is the card, opened.  I cut the skeleton to make it tall enough to appear to come out both ends.  I added some stickers and viola!
And, as they say in commercials..."BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE!"  I couldn't stop here.  I had to do more.  So, I used up the rest of the paper line to make a mini album to match the card!
 I decided to create this mini album for my pictures of this year's Halloween Festivities.  My little skeleton on the front, being looked at by the cat, holds the 2012 sign.  There is a spider by his head, and a spider on the spine as well.

 The album is made with 5 envelopes, 5 greeting cards, and I made 5 slider cards to go into it.
 Here is the inside front cover, and the first slider, on the envelope page.
 Here it is opened.
 When you turn the page, on the left, is the greeting card.  I created a pocket and placed a tag in it.  The slider is opened.
 The one side of the card is tucked into the envelope.  Here it is opened, showing a little "book" I made with the stickers in the paper kit.
 And here is the card pulled out of the envelope, the "book" opened.  Every envelope in this book has a card.  The part of the card that tucks into the envelopes is left blank for large pictures.
 I created another pocket for another tag.
 The embellishments are attached so that pictures can be tucked in behind them.
 I just love this paper line!

On the back inside cover I created another pocket for more tags.

So, now that's it.  You have seen what has been coming out of my den.  This lioness is tired!!!  I hope you continue your prowl on our hop, and go check out what my Den Sister, Sherence has in store for you!!!  Her blog is here.  Don't forget to say Trick or Treat!  Thanks for stopping by!  I would love to hear what you think, so please leave me a comment. If you have any questions, please ask!

As always, stay crafty, and SCARY, my friends!  BWAHAHAHAHA!!
