The one with a mini

I started this mini album for the Mega Meet on sunday. Been chipping away at it all week and only have a few little things left. So I thought I would share my process with you.

First, this is what the raw album looked like.
Then I painted the edges with black paint. I usually just ink the edges but this Kaiser Crafts album is thicker, like a smooth plywood material, so I thought paint would be faster.
I picked out all my pictures and printed them out. I arranged them by what pages they would go on so I didn't get confused.
Next up, I covered all the pages with paper. I had to cheat a little on this one. My original plan was to use the 6x6 paper pack I got... but it wasn't wide enough... so I added some other papers but made it look like I planned it that way ;)
Now the fun part! Putting it all together and adding the pretty stuff!
This is the front of all the pages....
And the back....
Still a little journaling left to do on the last two pages.... hope to get that done tonight!
Here is the album all together...
This album doesn't come with a ring so I am going to have to try and find one. A black one would be cool... I think 7 gypsies has them?? hum...

Well today was such beautiful weather here in Windsor! I finally got around to painting the railing on my porch! Sounded like a simple job but its kinda ornate and took a lot longer than I thought. But it looks great now :) Another thing off my list of house stuff to accomplish before the shower!

your album is so cute! I'm waiting for my last snapfish order to arrive before I really get rolling on mine.
Oh, before I forget -- that flower/ribbon stuff? It IS Prima -- you were so right! I checked when I stopped by the store the other day. Good eye!
