To Do Today (Mini?) Album, Part One

Here is my latest project.  I made the "bones" of this album ages ago.  Do you ever do that?  Come up with an idea, then between work and home and not knowing which papers to use you don't finish it?  I did.  At the last Creating Keepsakes convention I bought a kit with the October Afternoon paper line "9 to 5" in it, and knew this was the paper line I needed to use.  I had a few pieces of this collection from a past project I did, so I combined the two and came up with this.
It is not a mini album…it is a huge album.  By the time I got done adding all of the decorations and such, I could hardly keep it closed.  I made the closure with two bulldog clamps and tied ribbon to them.  This way the closure is easy to remove, but pretty too.
 The album has 4 base pages, but is FULL of places to put things.  And, believe it or not, it is made out of envelopes!
The next post will be about the base pages and how I put them together.  I sure hope you like it!  I am working on a video about the book as well.  As soon as I get it done I will let you know.

I'm not really sure what "subject" is going in this book, but it's ready when I do decide.  I am so happy with how it came out…I just love it!

Stay crafty, my friends!!
