Grandma's Brag Book:

Here we have a cute 'country' inspired brag book which holds 10 photos in plastic sleeves. I'm really happy with how it turned out since I was just playing around when I made it, and this was my first (not second or even third) attempt at the design...I got it right first time...Yay!!!

At the risk of sounding even more immodest as I go on and on about this little project, I'm even happy with the colour scheme which I came by as I threw scraps of cardstock in a pile. As fate had it, Real Read sat beside Old Olive which was sitting on some left over Kraft cardstock and they looked great together.

As for the stamp set, I chose Petal Prints because it's such a versatile set that I hadn't used in quite some time. So, I dusted it, as well as my sizzix machine and Lollipop Upper and Lower alphabets off to create the focal point and script. I hope you like it!

I love it Nerine... what did you use for the plastic sleeves... where did you get them from... I have made a few albums before but never with plastic sleeves.

This is so cute Nerine. I have all the same questions as Chrissie though.
