Heritage Album Is Done!



I have finished the heritage album my mom wanted me to do for her brother! I have done a youtube video of it so I have some type of record of it being completed for myself. I am so glad it is done and I made my deadline which was Tuesday evening, although it has now changed to Thursday evening. Yeah me! I really did not like putting the stickers in the book my mom bought and tried to explain to her that these were not something I would but in a heritage album. The flourish stickers weren't too bad, however you can see I used grunge board flourishes and painted them brown. The Martha Stewart pansies weren't too bad either, but again, I would not have used them. The ladybug stickers were the worst, ugh! But mom wanted them in there so I put them in. So please tell me what you think good or bad and if you have any suggestions when I do my own 12x12 scrapbook pages. Or should I do mine similar to these? Thank you for looking!!!

Kim, you did a fantastic job! I love the papers and the embellishments were awesome! You did a beautiful job of coordinating everything, even the 'specials' from your Mom! I know your Uncle will love the gift because it truly is a great treasure.
Thanks for sharing,

Kim, the album is BEAUTIFUL! You did a fabulous job with them! The papers and embellishments really kept with the heritage theme (even the little ones from your mom...you never know, they may mean something special for your uncle!). All in all, you did something you can be proud of, you can tell a lot of work went into the album! I loved looking at your family history with you today!

I love your album. As a history teacher, I love looking at old photos and trying to put a story into each one. Great job.
