My first Mini Album!

At 2 am the Sunday before Mother's Day I woke up with the most brilliant idea ever....I was going to make both my mom and my grandma mini albums for Mother's Day....Did I say brilliant or crazy?  The crazy was compounded by the fact that I had never made a mini album before, but slightly alleviated by the fact that I had two mini albums sitting around the house.  Today I will show you my grandma's album as it was the first of the two that I made.  I will show my mom's in a later post. 

I really had a ton of fun with this mini.  The fact that it was a clear acrylic album and each page needed to mirror itself on the front and back side was a challenge, but also took some of the guess work out of doing the back.  For a theme for the album I chose to do a Great Grandma's Brag Book and put photos of her four great grandchildren in the book.  It was a lot of fun to make.  Each kid also got their own page and I did my best to match the current personality of each kid with the design I did for the pages.  I hope you enjoy.
