New Home Mini Album.

My son, Neil, and my beautiful daughter-in-law, Sarah,  just recently purchased their first home!  I am going to give her this mini album as a little present.  I sure hope she likes it!

I found the book in my stash of mini albums to make.  I buy stuff with the idea that I am going to use it someday...and it came in handy, PERFECTLY, for this project.

The papers are from Melody Ross, called Artsy Urban.  I am unsure where the book was from.

I cut strips of the papers, and used a Fiskars punch to create the scalloped roof.  I tied a key, and a heart lock charm to the rings.  The house numbers are stamped, and placed in a 7 Gypsies metal tag.  The flowers are Tim Holtz, with added rhinestone centers.  I put the chipboard sticker on the front, in the "door" spot, and added a black rhinestone for the door knob.
I placed black mats on the pages, and am giving Sarah templates and adhesive so she can cut and place her pictures.
This page has a pocket for two tags.  I tied the buttons on with the string, and used a little fray check on the knot, so that they wouldn't become untied.
On the front, and the back, I used the Martha Steward fringe scissors to create grass with a scrap of green papers by 7 Gypsies.

Thanks for looking!!!

Also, to all of you, have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
