mini photo album

I know I told you guys some time ago that I had made a mini photo album for my brother for his birthday but I haven't shown it to you yet so...here you go! The tutorial is on SCS HERE and as usual is easy to follow and produces terrific results.

I do not recall exactly what the name of the argyle paper is but I think it was from American Crafts or something like that. The green is the opposite side of the pattern and the blue is Night Quite Navy. The "f" on the front is from one of SU!'s chipboard packs and the little letters are rub-ons from a SU! package too. The pages inside are made with coasters and then covered with paper.

I really had a hard time with the cover of this album simply because I wanted it simple for a guy but to still look nice. I haven't actually sent a gift to my brother for his birthday in years so I really hope he likes it!

Update on the image swap. You can click HERE if you'd like to see who has sent their images and who has not. Of the last four that I am waiting for three of them have been sent. If the last person doesn't get theirs in then I will stamp some images to share with you all. Would that be okay? While I know that we have some people that are a little late getting their images here I do want you to know I will not let this drag on forever and they will be sent out next week. I believe everyone deserves grace and mercy as we all know how life goes sometimes. I'd also like to know what kind of swap you'd like to do next. I know my friend Courtney has the 6x6 recipe swap covered (sign ups are HERE for July's swap!) so I don't need to do that. Shall we do images again, cards with a specific company, cards with NVR, 6x6 scrapbook pages for pictures?...what do you all think?

Oh, yeah...you guys want to know who won the Glory from Lorie, huh? Well...I can't tell you right now because my boys aren't up to pick a number yet! I'll be back in about 20 minutes to announce the winner! Mwah! Grin 4

But you know me, I'll sign up for anything you offer!

Great photo book Lorie! I looked at the tutorial quickly and thought I would need tons of time to do it. So it wasn't too difficult? OK maybe I'll give this a go tomorrow! Thanks for the inspiration!
