A cute album of my cute little nephew!


I made this album for my SIL for her birthday. The pictures are really the star of this book -- aren't they amazing? My brother took them -- if you're in Utah, you should totally check out his photography website www.capturethem.com. He's awesome! He's taken some totally precious pics of my two boys you'll see in an album soon!

Anyway, back to facts... I used a handy-dandy swatch book from Daisy D's for the pages. These books are SO great -- 24 double-sided pages, already pinked, in 12 different designs. I just painted around the edges of the photos and slapped 'em on! I also added some buttons, Quickutz rub-ons, and Making Memories quote strips. I put the whole thing together with my bind-it-all. On the inside cover I cut a daisy from the Walk in My Garden cartridge at 2 1/2" and a Making Memories pocket. The stamp is from Autumn Leaves. And by the way, my spending ban is still in full swing -- who knew I had such great stuff in my stash?! TFL!

OMGOSH!!!!!! this is just amazing!! I LOVE it and you are right - the pictures are the best part. He is gorgeous - God Bless him.

OK ...... the paper is really yummy and it looks like the pages are chipboard. I also love the cover - what a great idea. I love everything about this album. You did a great job girl.

Hugs, TeriBeri
