I'm putting this project here because some of the pages were cut out from cardboard, but if the mods feel it belongs in the scrapbook layouts, feel free to move it! Smiley

To make the album, I simply cut the cardboard & overlays to the size I wanted. I added paper & sanded the edges, then added photos & embellishments. Two binder rings hold it together.

Journaling says: "Cinnamon is my lil' love pug because he was born, just for me, on February 14, 2009. He's the best gift I've ever received!"

Journaling says: "Anytime I feel sad, I just look at my lil' monster & I feel better. I wake up with a smile, cause he's licking my face. He makes me laugh when he eats things like grass or dust. I love falling asleep, with him snoring beside me. <3"

Journaling says: "I love how I can always tell what he's thinking because of the look on his wrinkly face."

Here's what I used to make it: Colorbok photo mats, paper & labels; Collage Press cardstock; Making Memories ribbon & button; Hambly overlays; My Mind's Eye paper; Martha Stewart punches; Fiskars punches; & the rest is from the dollar sections of Joann's & Target.

This was my first time making a mixed media book, & there's several things I would have done differently but I think it came out alright for a first try. Questions, comments are welcome. Smiley
