4th of July Mini Album

It's time for those incredible accordion ablums to come back.... and what better subject than Baby's first Fourth of July?? 

It is Patriotic Mini Album week at BettyBee's Buzz so I decided to create a special brag book for Erin's other Grandma, since she is so far away.  These little books are very easy to make, and have a ton of "real estate" (as my friend Kathy says!) 

This shows the layout of one side, with spaces for 4x4 photos, journaling, and some cute embellishments.  The other side has two more full squares behind the covers.

And here is a close up of how it looks behind the cover, and a little of the stamping and doodling that gives it such a charming look.  I hope you will give it a try~ 
If you have never made an album like this one.. I have done a YouTube video, and you can find it here.

Have a wonderful weekend, and if you are here in the USA, please take the opportunity to truly celebrate the freedoms and liberties that we enjoy and hold dear, and share their true value with a child.  Say the Pledge of Allegiance with them... express your gratitude for our Soldiers and Sailors... tell them what Patriotism is... believe it or not, many don't know... trust me, I've asked, and it's pretty sad when they really have no idea.  We owe them a lot.  God bless you, and God bless the USA.

Thank you for sharing this album. I missed the get well album earlier, but watched your YouTube. I have lots of ideas for upcoming baby showers.
