A Walk in the Gardens

Remember when I said that I was working on a mini album earlier this week, well, this is it. It is made out of a DVD tin (the kind that they package boxed sets in). I got the kit (DVD tin and patterned paper) from the lovely Julie over at Paper Pleasing Ideas. Here's a link to Julie's album that she made. I think that one of the cleverest things about this album is the pages - they are made out of clear envelopes -- they open on the left edge rather than the top so you can link them together and voila a photo album! I can't take any credit for that discover, it was Julie's not mine! (BTW - you can get the clear envelopes through Stampin' Up).

This was a fun album to make:) The pictures I used inside are of my family on a recent trip to Regina when we went for a walk through the Legislative Gardens. We were such a silly bunch that day so the pictures are pretty fun- and the flowers were pretty pretty. Oh, and it was super windy that day, so there's no such thing as good-hair in these pictures;) I also used some of my SU rubons in this album (finally! - another thing that I seemed to be saving and never getting around to using).

By the way I used DoodleBug Sugar coating on the cupcake, yummy! Thanks for stopping by!
