Bind It all album

Here is my first bind it all album. You are probably totally sick of seeing these photos - same ones as the last three mini's, but I like them. This one is for my neighbors - they are such sweethearts and love ellie. It isnt overly embellished and it feels a little 'not done' to me, but I guess maybe I got sick of using the same photos over and over again. anyway, for this album I bought a children's board book at the dollar store and cut it apart. For the cover I cut the swirl out just to make the cover stand out. Then I covered the whole thing in paper. Since the pages were an odd size and I didnt plan well, I could only cover one page per sheet of cardstock, unless I peiced some together. so I used some scraps of patternet paper with my scraps of cardstock to get it all done without using my entire supply of blue green grey paper.

after all the paper was glued on, I sanded the edges, inked them, and then ran it through the bind it all. That thing is amazing! It was so much easier than I thought and it looks so professional!!
