This layout was meant for a square photo. I liked the little squares of paper on it and of course carried over my butterfly embellishment:
The cover of the album, purchased by my friends who doubled with me to create this gift, also had a window for a picture, so I left it as it was except for adding a little birthday love message. The birthday girl can add a photo of her own to the cover. The album was also black and white which fit in with the party location and the papers and cardstock I chose (this album is also non-Stampin' Up!):
Have you ever made a similar project? If so, I'd love to hear about it and visit your blog post about it. Tell me your story in the comments!
