I had a crazy week last week, working on a number of projects at the same time! This album, I made for my older DD. She has recently taken a keen interest in photography and I had promised her I would put together some of the photos she took during her school's Malacca trip earlier this year, into an album. And this 8 x 8 canvas-covered chipboard album from Pink Paislee was the perfect size and choice for her 4R photos.
As you can see, I covered the chipboard pages with matching patterned papers from Pink Paislee as well. And as there were more photos that I wanted to include than there were pages in the album, I decided to add three additional page sheets using Hambly transparencies, instead of more chipboards.
I was, frankly, quite impressed with some of her shots, so if you have noticed, I decided to do up the album without my usual "tons" of flowers and blings, in order not to detract from the photos. Believe me, this is considered "a few" flowers for me - lol!
Here's a look at the individual pages of the album.
