Halloween Lapbook

I've finally completed my altered lapbook!  It's only taken me 2 months! lol  I started this adventure when I entered the 31 Days of Halloween at Smeared & Smudge.  For every day of October I created something Halloween inspired.  At the end I wanted to showcase all my efforts into a book and was informed of a most fantastic book - the lapbook!  Using many hours of youtube research - specifically the Kathy Orta Files I managed to construct my own.  I used some of my own measurements as our file folders are different sized to the ones in the US and I got totally confused with inches vs centimetres lol.  So without further adeu here she is!

I've joined in with the following challenges -
Aud Sentiments Challenge - Anything Goes
4 Crafty Chicks - Flowers
The Sisterhood of Crafters - Something New (The gold sparkly raised dots on the cover)
Crafty Boots Challenge - Out with the old and in with the new - old manilla folders turned into a brand new lapbook!
Inky Chicks - Anything Goes
The Order of the Opus Gluei - Anything but a card
