I am really happy with this album. I was inspired in a different way this time. My good friend is going through a tough time right now. Her dad is really sick and she is at the hospital a lot. I had asked a few times if there was anything I could do to help. Nothing was the reply. I really wanted to do something for her and her family and a thinking of you card was just not enough. So I turned to scrapbooking and I decided I would send them a smile.
That was the inspiration. If I get one smile on her face it will be well worth the time, which is very short these days with the house stuff. I wanted the theme to be family but cheerful! I wanted bright colors, words of family, love and home. Her husband is a photographer so he can provide beautiful pictures and while she is at the hospital she can fill in the journaling with her mom. It will give them something else to do and maybe cheer them up a bit.
I used the DCWV Citrus Matstack and coasters from a bar.
Let me know what you think and any suggestions regarding future ribbon/fiber choices.
