a year in pictures '08
Here's a look at my "Year in Picture's '08" mini album. I made one of these for both my mom and mother-in-law for Christmas...I love doing these albums (remember mine from last year?) because it's such a great way to get a whole year into one, compact little book. This mini has 108 pictures in it and only measures 4" x 6.5". I still need to make one for myself, but the grandma's were priority before Christmas! Hope you like it.
Some notes about my album:
-measures 4" x 6.5"
-all patterned papers are Basic Grey (this was a GREAT way to use up papers from my stash that have been sitting around)
-most accents and embellishments are Heidi Swapp and American Crafts
-font is Heidi Swapp Clear Alpha Font downloaded from digiswapp.com
-all photo collages were created in photoshop and printed as regular 4x6 photos
-attached with a simple binder ring and tulle
It isn't too late to put together a little album like this for yourself of 2008...such a great way to capture a year. I'm excited to do one for 2009 as well. Crazy to think that I'll have 3 adorable little faces in those pictures instead of just the two. Aaaaahh!
Life is good.
