3"X3" MINI ALBUM


Hi and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

Was watching U Tube recently and the lady made one of these albums, her site is called
Gift Basket Appeal if you are interested in looking at the lovely items she makes. 
 So here is my version of her album which my daughter wanted to send to her friend who is recovering from Breast Cancer.
Sorry quite a few photos.






This album is made from one piece of 12"x12" size paper.
Then I used lot of snippets to create the pages and the cover.
There are some pockets in the top and also in the sides. 
The sayings inside were computer generated, but the lady on UTube used stamps to create those sayings which I didn't have.
Sorry about the fourth photo it came out a little blurred.

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
I really do appreciate each and every visit.
Lots of crafty love. JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.
