Gift Albums

June is packed with reasons to celebrate...Father's Day, my mom's birthday, Keith's mom's birthday. So to honor those special people (and give myself a good excuse to actually USE my scrapbooking supplies!), I decided to make photo albums as gifts this year. Each one is unique and was a labor of love...they each took about 4-5 hours to complete...which wouldn't be a huge deal, except that I was crazy and decided to take on these projects a week before our Florida vacation/Father's Day. Which meant that I pretty much had to complete one album each night, since I needed albums for my mom's birthday, Keith's mom's birthday, and my dad, Keith's dad and Keith for Father's Day. Whew! Next time I'll plan a little better! :-) But I'm so happy with how each one turned out and everyone appreciated them. Here's a sampling of photos:

Album for Keith's mom, Darlene



The project that started it all...just wanting to scrap a few Christmas photos.



Album for my dad for Father's Day (the one for Keith's dad looks the same).

Wow! I almost cried looking at these Sis. You are so talented it's unbelievable. I bet that is Mom's most cherished present ever. That's what I want for my Christmas present next year ok? Love you!
