Grandma's Brag Book

Our daughter, son-in-law and grandson came to visit during the end of December and the first week of January.  When I get back to work, I have to have a brag book to show everyone...so I made this today.

 I was inspired by this book I found on the  Crate Paper Blog.  But, I decided to do it a little different.
 I took out all of the pages out of a book I found at the thrift store, then painted the book black.  I added paper to the inside of the book to cover, then used 8 envelopes and made this file book.
 I used 8 envelopes, so there are 8 tags, each with a picture on each side.  I wanted to highlight our visit and things we did together.  I did all of the pictures in my December Junk Journal.  Above is me, my awesome husband, DJ, and Cooper, our first grandson.  He is 3, and we are on the zoo train ready to see the Zoo Lights.
 This is Grandpa and Cooper putting together a puzzle.
I used Cosmo Crickets Circa 1934 paper line ( I had leftovers from another project and they worked perfectly for this), Recollections cardstock, and Bazzill envelopes.  I used some 7 Gypsies and Recollections bling on the cover as well.

I think the folks at work will like looking at this, what do you think?

Stay Crafty, My Friends!
