My sister asked that I make a family album for her family for 2014.  She didn’t want it to be perfect…then she would think it was too good to use!  So, I found something I had that I could alter and play around with.


  1. Base:  Classified File Folder.
  2. Front Page:  Random scraps of paper and rub-ons from the 1970s!  No, seriously…they are actually that old.
  3. First Two Pages:  The paper used is K&Company.  At my sister’s request, I have added some sheets of paper for journaling.
  4. Second Two Pages:  DCWV Gilded Orchard paper, random stamps, and paper clips.
  5. Third Two Pages: Recollections Espresso Paper, stamped with Inkadinkadoo stamps one side (inked with walnut).
  6. Fourth Two Pages:  Fish/water theme.  K&Company paper.  Creel; random paper, Silhouette print/cut.  Trout are a Silhouette File.
  7. Back Cover:  Random scrap paper.  Our grandmother died earlier this year.  While at her bed side I started working on a dandelion quilled art piece.  So, dandelions have come to represent my grandmother.  I hosted a dandelion swap, the dandelion picture was something I received in that swap.
