Ruby Wedding Anniversary Mini Album

I can see a light at the end of the tunnel! Never again will I moan about not going out enough! I have one week before we fly out to Tunisia and I am making the crafting most of it!!!

DH and I are shattered (in a good way) and I am stressing about the commitments I have made as a GD....more of that next month!! I don't want to keep worrying about what is coming up, but to just enjoy the ride. The trouble is I am such an anal control freak!! Hey ho, one thing that I can tick off is the album that my friend asked me to make to celebrate her parents' 40th wedding anniversary.

She wanted a 'junk' album with lots of places for her Mum to write notes and pop keepsakes in. There are loads of pages but here are a few so you get the idea :0)

DP are primarily Pink Paislee's Butterfly Garden

A misted brown paper bag to hold precious bits and bobs.

A min book for extra photos.

A did quite a few fold out pages, this is one of them.
Although I was given about 15 photos to use I added in some blank pages for the couple to pop in more photos that they love.

I haven't made a junk album for a while and it has given me the nudge to make some more. I love that eclectic feel...and the best bit is you can use up any old bits and bobs that are lying around! this book has got an acetate sheet, transparencies, vellum, paper bag, mini album, cut and stitched page protector, tags and pockets. I am hoping that it will get fatter and fatter as it is filled with treasures and happy memories :0)

Thanks for popping in today,
