I began this blog to document my POTD (picture of the day) for our Project Life album in 2010. In Sept. 2011 I had our first baby and I plan for her to have the most documented life possible. I have continued each year with Project Life, but also have expanded my blog to include layouts and other creations. Life has gotten busy, so I don't post as often as I used to, but am still determined to try. I would love to have you join me on our journey! Thank you for visiting!

SYTYCS #15 - Baby Accordion Album
Hello fellow crafters! I have not had any free time to scrap, but I did make it to week #15 of the "So You Think You Can Scrap" challenge over at Colorful Creations. This week the requirement was not to create a scrapbook page, but an accordion album. This one just about had me bailing out of the competition. With the little time I have to scrap, I really want to scrap pages for Maddie's album. Creating a random mini-album was not on my to do list. After debating for most of the week, I decided to create a baby album for my friends baby shower that I am hosting for her this weekend. The only kicker is the requirements were to have the album completed, including pictures. Here is my album, and yes I filled in pictures of Maddie that I plan to remove. It is actually a baby boy album, LOL!
Here is the front. I used a ribbon and a little heart clasp to close the album.
The other requirements were:
Only use ONE manufacturer line. All papers (except your cardstock) must be from the same line, same collection. 50% of your embellishments must also be from this line. I used all My Mind's Eye - Lost & Found line. Everything is from this line including the twine except for the ribbon, clasp, thickers date stickers, a single rub-on and the two journaling blocks.
You must have your album fully completed. That means photos on each page and all. I added photos to each page, but plan to remove them to give the album as a gift.
Somewhere in your album you must use twine or ribbon - I used twine on the banner and ribbon to clasp it all together.
at least 2 of your facing pages MUST be coordinating page (as you would do for a double page layout) - All of my pages were completed as coordinating pages.
the picture you post of your album MUST show the entire album so we can see each page (refer to the example below) - My picture shows the entire album, every page.
