Inside Out

I'm finally back from vacation. Just in time for my Birthday! Happy Birthday to ME:)

Also, it's time for an INSIDE OUT CHALLENGE at Stamptacular Sunday challenge. Create any project where you decorate the inside, as well as, the outside for a chance to win a Stampin Up stamp set.

My project is a small photo album for my mom. I used some album inserts from Bo Bunny that I got for about $1.50. This was a really inexpensive album to make. I was a bit short on time, so I didn't get to embellish as much as I would have liked.

The front was covered with Heidi Grace paper and stamped using Certainly Celery and a retired SU set called Roses In Winter. The heart is chipboard from the dollar spot at Joann's and is covered with some coordinating paper. I used Rub Ons and ribbon from Hobby Lobby. The pages are held together with book rings.

I am only showing the first pages of the album or it would be a really LONG post. I used several different designer papers and several different stamp companies to create this book. I plan on doing this again. Very fun and full of memories. Thanks for checking in today. Don't forget to look at those Design Team blogs for more inspiration. I will back to checking all of your creations now that I'm home for a week.

Hope you get to play along too!
