My First Acrylic Album

Vacation photos have been sorted by day/location on the kitchen island...the acrylic album is on the front right corner waiting to be used.

The project went from this ...
to this!

I used more CTMH Emporium papers to create an acrylic album--the greens, blues, and yellows fit perfectly with the colors of our recent western Caribbean cruise.

Rub-on sentiments and flourishes in white and chocolate, white ric rac, brown hemp, and other embellishments, all CTMH items, help make this memory album special. I worked all day on this project and am so happy to finish it. What wonderful memories of a relaxing week!

The remainder of the photos are going to go into our album--on a one-page layout and in a page of photo pockets.

As I write this post, I'm watching snow fall (groan!) ... but even worse, my poor DH is wearing his mask and trying his darndest to get a skunk to find a different warm refuge than right under our deck.

She (how do I know it's a she?) isn't a very happy camper and has sprayed a few times already -- oh, how I hope we can get rid of this stink and not smell too bad for Easter.

We may need to make a trip to Aldi's for a case of tomato juice ... I'll keep ya posted.

Hi Jane,
A wonderful project!
You did this in a day? I'm impressed. I have so much scrapbooking materials and haven't finished one.
I'm going to have to come here to keep motivated.
Thanks for visiting my 'Matchsticks' post. :)

Thanks, Carletta, for your nice comment! Let's say I'm driven. Of course we didn't have a decent meal all day...but Cheerios are nutritious, right?

Thanks for your comment, Hope! It's even prettier IRL. CTMH has produced some gorgeous papers & I can't get enough of them. These seemed to fit the Caribbean "flavor."

scrap your heart out with Jen said...

Did you have fun creating this book? I really enjoyed making mine (I made it last summer). I am impressed you made it one day...good for you! Keep up the great work.
