Susan's Saga

Completed mini album






How was your Easter? We spent ours visiting with friends and family when we weren't at the excellent and fascinating church conference. It was good to have time to catch up and now we're still eating the leftovers instead of having to cook = more time for craft!

I did finish the mini album and plan to give it to my mother in law. I used pictures of her surprise 80th birthday party. I wound up adding a few more pages to the album to fit more photos in, and the design of the album allowed that to happen comfortably. Here's some of the finished pages (there are too many to post them all!)

I'd make another one of these. This pattern turns out nicely. And it allows you to totally customise your project with colours, patterns, embellishments, and even how many pics you want to add. You can have from four double pages to about eight, unless you want to make the album cover thicker and add more. I used six double pages here.
