What? A scrapbook?

Its been years! Pretty much when I discovered stamping, I stopped making scrapbooks. I found I liked the instant gratification of a card, plus no printing pictures, etc. So the last few years I have just made books on snapfish. But then I purchased a bind it all from one of the girls on the PTI forum and that BIA was begging to be used.I call it Refrigerator photos because these are the photos that come in the mail and are on my fridge with magnets until more come and then some get put into a box called, fridge photos. Apparently I am going to need quite a few volumes, because I still have plenty of photos. The cover uses a chipboard BIA cover, I covered it with a piece of pp from PTI's pretty pastels. I used my spellbinders and WM stamps to make the label. The tiny flowers are from PTI's wedding set. The big flower is from MM and the button and twine are from PTI.
Here's an inside page. Matt Jr. is my nephew. I used PTI's outline alphabet for the letters.
One more shot... thats more of my nephew and then the lower page is my good friend Jenn's sons. They are much older now. The baby is 5. Thanks for stopping by!

That's a great idea! I never know what to do with all those pictures! Usually they just go into a pile.

What a great little album! You put the BIA to very good use and your nephew is a doll! Love the alpha and thank you for a great idea. I need to start giving some love to some photos, too.

I had no interest in the ric rac die until just now Michele. I just LOVE what you've done with this mini album. The LOS are gorgeous and simple, but SO pleasing. Your nephew is a major cutie!

This is fantastic! I love how you save the fridge photos and now you are doing something with them. And i've been wanting a bind-it-all for a while, I think you might have just pushed me over the edge!! Great project!!

Love the little mini album! I have quite a few of those just sitting around, if I ever get back into scrapping I think that's the route I'll go; seems quicker and easier!
