Memory Book….

19 Mar

I have been working on this project for about a week and I have to say, I have really enjoyed it!!! A friend at work is retiring and I was asked to create something for her, so I decided to do a memory book.  This is my very first attempt at a project like this.

All the paper contained in this book was from my My Mind’s Eye – Lost & Found paper pad.  On the inside I used several border punches as well as die cuts from Memory Box.  The book is full of well wishes from co-workers as well as some pictures.

I actually used Tim Holtz Distressed Inks on every page! LOL!!!  Mel, my friend from The Cutting Garden helped me with this project because I truly didn’t have a clue where to begin! LOL!!! THANKS MEL!!!! 😀

Now that I have this one finished I just can not wait to start another one! LOL!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

    What a great book! I have some Lost and Found paper packs and love them. Was this a chipboard book or did you create the book and bind it too?? Love it.

      Thanks Kathy…. I just started out with cardboard and went from there… Kim helped with this cool Cinch or Cynch machine at the store to bind it. It was totally fun! I will be making another attempt at this again very soon! 🙂
