Mini album - finally!

I finally managed to get pictures of the mini album that I made a while back. I am really pleased with how it turned out. Jen, at Creative Crafts and Stickers, challenged us to make a fall themed mini album, while Amy, at the same place, challenged us to do a hybrid project. At the same time, Heidi, at ScrapShotz, also gave a mini album challenge and included instructions on how to make an accordian fold mini album. All of these challenges were inspiration for the mini album I created. The album's theme is pictures of my children taken in the fall. I created the cover, title pages, and name tags digitally and printed and pasted them into the mini album. Love how that turned out! It took some figuring out but I finally figured a way to use the accordian fold album so that I could tie it shut with ribbons on both sides and so that all the pictures on one side were of the boys and the other side of the girls. I just love the final product! And, yes, Mom, it's a present for you. I'll bring it to you this weekend. :)

The top picture here shows the cover and then the next two show both sides of the album opened out:

I have some other things to post too but I think I'll wait until tomorrow to post them.

I've never tried an accordian album, although I have one sitting downstairs in my crafroom screaming for some attention - your project just sparked some motiviation and inspiration in me to go get it done! I just really didn't know what to do with it and i love your cover, theme,colors and overall design - beautiful work!!
