Star Album

I made this album last night for my friend who just had her 2nd baby boy! It is called a STAR ALBUM and I got it from this website (thanks Donelda for the link on your blog - I totally found it by FLUKE!!!) There are SO many cool mini albums to make, I was amazed!! This one stuck out for me, as it is compact like a little album, but yet it opens up like a star (hence the name!!) LOL) that they can leave open and display like a frame. Anyways, I used SU papers and ink - Green Galore, Brocade Blue, Basic Gray and Garden Green, and the DP is Prestwick. I added a few embellies to finish it up! I am SO PLEASED with this album I can hardly stand it!!! LOL
Here is a closed view of the front cover - tied up. The stamp is from Stampendous (Peek a boo baby) Top view - see why it's called a Star Album???

This is the back page of the album. I had to block out the faces as I don't have permission to display photos of them, but you get the general idea anyways! It says "A star is born"

A couple of the pages inside.

Top-side-ish view - it was really hard taking pictures of this album (especially cuz my table is a DISASTER!!) but I hope you get the general idea of how it looks!! I left a few pages blank so they could add their own favourite photos - these are just the ones they emailed everyone after he was born!!! I hope they like it!!!! AND, it only took me about 4 hours from start to finish!!!! Not bad eh?? I was tickled pink - or blue and green!!!!
Thanks for looking - have a great day & try to stay warm (for those of us in this NASTY winter weather "glitch"!!!)

Love your star album!! That's so neat. And I just LOVE your blog background and those cute pink swirlies overlaying your posts!! How'd you get the pink thingies on top of your posts? That's way cool. I've been experimenting with mine as well, but I'm not very computer literate at all...just experimenting and learning as I go. :)
