Bringin' Out the Scraps...

...just wish it were on my OWN albums! I don't even want to think how behind I am running on my kids albums. This was a special request album I did for one of the original founders of Century 21 who was retiring after 30+ years in the business. This album is a compilation of personal messages of congrats and farewells. I had a different album in mind, however, Michael's was out of the refills so I found this option...I think it worked well! The front reminds me of a poker game with how I arranged the lettering.
To make the background paper I used my SU! French Script BG stamp and went all over the paper. To add an "aged" look, I ran my shimmering gold ink over the entire page and accented the corners with my PTI First Fruit Stamps.

Matching card to go along with the album. I printed off the sentiment and ran it thru my Wizard machine for a nice beveled oval.
I have several new projects to share this week...just need to get them photographed and edited sooo stay tuned! I will be taking a two week break from posts later this month when my oldest is on Christmas Break. I'm also going to use this time to clean and purge my craft room(its pretty unorganized) as well as contemplate adding a "For Sale" page after soo many email requests. I'm not sure if I will do this as I take orders on request...but it might be a nice feature to offer things I have made, that on are hand, and ready for immediate shipping! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
