Today I want to share a mini album I made for my son's Kindergarten teacher. She retired this year after 43 years of teaching! She is a dear lady, and Kendall loved having her for a teacher, so I wanted to give her something personal to remember this little guy.
Here's an example of the inside pages. I didn't include all the pages, because I had pictures of the teacher with my son, and I didn't think she would want her picture on the internet.
This picture shows my cover. I cut it using the Cricut DoodleCharms cartridge. I cut the apple shadow out at 5 3/4" on a cracker box and black cardstock. Then I cut the rest of the layers with cardstock.
I cut the inside pages with the shadow feature onto white cardstock and the patterned paper from Recollections and glued them together so they would be thicker. I used various embellishments cut from DoodleCharms, some journaling cards from Little Yellow Bicycle, stickers from Tina Ledbetter/SandyLion and Paper Studio, buttons, ribbons, and clips from my stash.
Teacher loved the mini album, and I'm glad I took pictures of it so I can remember it, too. I'll make him a 12x12 school scrapbook, but who knows when? Maybe now that school is out, I'll have some scrapportunities to get that started, anyway! LOL!
