The Love of Family

I was asked to create for the Operation Smile auction that we have at Corporate Events.  First of all, what an honor!  I pour over the artwork that is contributed, and I am very humbled that I was asked.  So being the over-achiever that I am, I made three items that I will be sharing with in the next few days.

This first one is one of our My Creations display albums.  I love it because it has 12 page protectors (6x6) bound into the album.  A lot of my customers purchase these for parent and grandparent gifts.  You can create a calendar and display photos.  Well, just let me show you what I did with the pages.

I used the Family Love stamp set on the cover for the sentiment, and I also used it to stamp the flourish and decorative rectangle.  These pages would work for a calendar, written thoughts, or photos.  This album is made with the beautiful Florentine paper.  I added one of the Florentine Timeless Charms to the cover and finished it off with yummy dark chocolate striped ribbon.

All of the items I used to make this album can be found on my website.  Be sure to stop in tomorrow to take a peek at my twist on a recipe/card box!
