My First Mini Album


A special friend of mine shares old pictures of her mother and father quite often on Facebook. Her mother has passed but her father is still living and my friend speaks so lovingly of both of them that you just know what wonderful parents she had/has. She's always helping me with all things computer including this blog so I wanted to make a special little something for her. I decided to try making a mini album so that she can put some of her favourite pictures of her parents into one special place. Here are some photos showing the pages with all of the pockets and compartments. The majority of the papers used for this project were from DCWV along with various Graphic 45 collections. Flowers were from Wild Orchid Crafts and Petaloo as well as Recollections. I'm pretty pleased with the way it turned out and my friend liked it. We always say that the pictures she shares look like 'movie star' pictures and so I've added a nod towards that with the mini roll of film on the front cover. As usual, comments and questions are always welcome. Thanks for looking!

Thanks everyone. It sure was fun making it. I loved finding ways to add little pockets and compartments to house the pictures. That was a lot of YouTube hours. LOL There are so many talented people out there who fill me with inspiration. Nancy; Yes I'm hooked. I'm already planning the next ones.
