An Inspired Project!

Remember that "WOOHOO" I had the other day? When I went into the LSS and found the perfect supplies that I never knew I needed? LOL Well, the project is finished and here it is!

I had taken some great shots of DH when he was kiteskiing the other day -- and the project that came out of it wasn't exactly what I originally pictured it to be. I intended to do a double page layout. During the drive home, however, my idea morphed into something totally different -- a tin box album -- and I am so pleased with it! Here's what it looks like:

The covers are actually the top and bottom of a tin box. The tin is bound right into the album, and the pages are staggered like this:

And a view of the inside of the back cover of the tin:
This little album was so much fun, and surprisingly easy. The materials I used were the new "Zach's Life" line from Little Yellow Bicycle. I also used a few Maya Road Office Sheers.
If you'd like to see this project in real life, it's at Just Scrap It in Saskatoon. :)

Wow, it's Kristen here again, who knows the guys from Escape....this book / album is awesome!!!!!!! It's the greatest album in a long original, so wonderful, so brilliant! The idea is amazing, and the pictures, papers and embellies (text, logos, etc.) WOW! I may have to show this one to my partner! I would love to do up a manly extreme sports book for him!!!!! LOVE IT!
