Today I have done a project that used up most of my boy scraps from my kids album pages and cards I have made. I have used a page insert from the Quickutz Santas workshop Wintergreen album to complete the project. It starts of as a banner, which will be hung in my youngest son's room. When the year has finnished and the banner is complete I can make an album out of it using the cover from the same album set!. The idea behind this was so that my son can see pictures of himself each month growing and also be able to look at them himself (with help so it doesn't get ripped mind you) by being able to take the picture out of it's pocket.
Here are some photos of the finished project......
This was such a fun project and a great way to use up some of my scraps. The only thing that was not scraps was the album pages which was cut from white cardstock.
I hope you have enjoyed my projects and have had fun hopping along. Please view the blog below if you did not have a chance to hop along yesterday, if you did then it's time to hop back to Madison
