At last I can Share

Hi all, At last I can share with you, a mini album I made for my daughter. Sometime ago Cathie mentioned that she didn't have many photos of when she was little. Back in the old days (I can't believe that I would ever admit to this) when we didn't have the freedom of digital cameras, photos were not high on my list of priorities.

I did however over time take photos but they were mostly in the form of colour slides. The earliest photo I have of Cathie was at 10 weeks. That would NEVER do in today's world and even more so for a scrapper. Well it took a while of hunting through shoe boxes and cases of slides, but I finally found enough photos that would document her early years.

I found a mini album which the very talented Ruth had made - you can find her tutorial HERE. She had put it up as a give away and since I didn't win it, I decided to have a go and make one myself. Ruth's album gave me so much inspiration and even though in the end my album was nothing like what I had imagined, I was very happy with the way it turned out.

































I wrote a personal message on a little card and slipped it into the inside front cover. I also covered a little box in matching paper to keep the mini album safe when it was not on display.

Thank you for stopping by.....
