Granny gift - baby photo album
I made this gift for my friend, Robin, who just became a grandmother for the first time. This seems vaguely familiar so I might have mentioned her in the past few days. Any way, I used Animal Cookies B&T and the cardstock to match. This is an easy album to make. It only took a few hours. I hope it doesn't look like that though. I made one a few years ago for my boss and was going to look for the photos to get an idea for the cover of this one when I came across a card made by Sharli, over at Sharli's Place. I just clicked on her blog to get her link and see that she has made another darling card - check it out. I will want to make copies of them some time soon. Need to put them in my to be copied file. Oops, I forgot where I was going with this. I am talking to my daughter on the phone as I write this. This cover is inspired by her card. You can't see it in the photos, but I stamped journaling spots on the accordion. I don't know if I should add B&T to the bottom pieces or if I should leave them blank. Any opinions? I don't think I will send this to her until after my gathering in June. I want to be able to show it off.
I thought I was going to have two gatherings in June but I cannot reach the one lady. She emailed me and asked me about having a gathering, but hasn't responded to my emails. Oh well.
Thanks for tuning in.
