Florida Mini Album

It feels sooo good to finish a project that has been sitting on my desk for the past four months! And it feels even better when it turned out great and is a gift for a good friend :)

My lovely friend, Michelle, had an awesome family vacation in Florida where they did it all - beach, Disney World, Lego Land, Sea World, sight seeing... there was a lot packed into one week! I was very honored that she asked me to create an album from their personal photos.

The entire album and most embellishments are papers from DCWV "Sweet Tangerine" stack, with a little bit of banners cut from DCWV  "My Sunshine" stack. The colors and patterns are perfect for a Florida scrapbook.

Please enjoy the inside pages of the album!...

Page 1 - title page. These are the Days

Some pages are 'mini' and tuck in between larger pages

I used a lined pattern paper on the black so my friend can Personalize and journal her memories
Aren't those Sweet Tangerine papers great for a Florida spring break album? Each page was cut from chipboard (cereal boxes!) and decoupaged with patterned paper. I used a basic office supply hole punch and metal rings to hold the album together.

The album is wrapped up in lime green tissue paper and a big bow, ready to go home with my friend! I also included two finished blank pages so she can add a couple more photos if she wants. Fingers crossed that she likes it!
