Mini Album Share - Ben@1

For my older son, I did a little mini album for one of his birthdays awhile back. It is very small, I think 4x5 and just has some fun pictures in it.  I had some scraps of Li'l Davis Paper that I used for it that was just too cute!

First, I laid out all the pages & got the photos trimmed down to size.  I used chip in between each of the pages to give it sturdiness.

I made the CoasterZ that has his name in it, and I just hand-drew the @ sign.  1 is Chatterbox.  The ribbon matched beautifully & was just some grosgrain that I had picked up at Hobby Lobby.  I loved the little feet paper clips I found at Staples!  In the back you can see a sample of products I had laid out to use.  Typically what I will do is go find the category of stuff that I'm making (school, Christmas, etc.) and then just up-end the bucket and start digging until I find what matches & what I like.

 You can see it coming together over the next few pictures...

I think total it took me a couple hours (maybe a couple more!) to put it together.  He loves it, and I love looking at it!
