What a flash back when I logged into this blog after over 3 years ago when I did my last post.  It brought a smile to my face seeing it was about me  finding out we were having a grandson.  Since then I now have 2 grandsons.  One was born a week ago.  The baby mentioned in the October 2013 post was actually born on my birthday so he was the best birthday gift I have ever had in my entire life - they ended up naming him Samuel Thayden Gray.  What a blessing!

Fall 2010 Mini Album

I made this Fall Mini Album with photos of my granddaughters taken this week-end at the Pumpkin Patch and a family birthday dinner.

Here are the dimensions of the book:

Outside Front Cover:  3 1/4 x 10 inches, score at 4 1/4, 4 1/2, and 9 1/4

Pages:  3 x 4 1/2 inches (6 of them)  Score at 3/4 inches so your pages will flip properly.  You can round the corners of the pages on the opposite end of the score line if you wish.

Designer Paper:  2 3/4 x 3 1/2 or 3 3/4 depending on if you want it to tuck in the fold or not.

Photos:  8 to 10 pictures sized/cropped at 3 3/4 x 2 3/4 or smaller, depends on how much journaling you want to do.

Instructions: Cover of the mini album after scored and folded resembles a match book cover.  Staple close to the edge of the paper after you get your pages in the book.  Add whatever embellishments you wish depending on the theme of the book.  This one is a Fall or Harvest theme.  The original inspiration came from my stampin buddy Sue.  Check out all her wonderful mini albums on her blog.
