#48 It's all about Title LM Challenge

I tried to make my title "stand" out, for "it's all about title" at Lasting Memories Challenge.  I like to  scan the kids cards, and cut them down, & put them in my layout however, they turned out very light, so hard to see...  See the other beautiful layouts created by the D/T at Lasting Memories....  Come join us. :)

Challenge #45 Lasting Memories Album

I thought this would be rather generic album, to make, and really it isn't terribly summery--but, I think it will work for summer pics, but mostly I thought it would make a fun summer gift for a friend.  :)  I had a lot of fun with this album, as I made it using paper bags, but I put cardboard on it to strengthen it, and I used canvas (that I painted to look tye dyed), I added a ring to the end of it, and ties lots of fibers and ribbons (I punched that through the album)--and then of course just loads of embellishments, and I used a lot of the bag ends for pockets in my album.  What a wonderful, fun, creative idea Karen had!! Play along with Lasting Memories, and be inspired by the lovely D/T designs. :)

Everyone has been so so nice, with all their compliments--thank you!  But, I cannot take total credit for my paper bag album, I watched a youtube stream, on how a lady makes hers, and went from there. :)
