inspiring and encouraging mums of big kids (because little kids grow up) to create family adventure every day

finished - my first mini!

The challenge - use a corrugated cardboard box as the base and create an album about something you love...

The end result - was heaps of fun to make! You had to peel away some of the top layer to expose the corrugation, then paint, ink the edges, and stick away! I used photos of the kids from one afternoon playing outside with the water pistols and new swing set... they were both drenched and being silly and happy...

Being my first album, I wasn't really sure what I was doing in terms of embellishments - I had enough trouble with rubons that didn't stick!! But, as with most things, once I finished and couldn't change it, I had sparking brain waves ~lol~ but it was so easy, it will be simple to do more!! I can see why some people are hooked on them, and what a great way for the kids to have photos of their adventures!!
