Beyond the Page Albums

I think I might be starting to get the hang of OTP albums... finally.

I've done a few in the past but I've never really been 100% thrilled with how they've turned out.

In the last week I have made two albums.
The 18th album is for my cousin's birthday (still a few months away so SHHH top secret) and I still need to print off some journalling prompts to glue in for her to fill out. Things like; Favourite Song, Favourite Clothes, Where I work, etc so that she can look back on what she was into at 18.

The other one is a collection of funny quotes and memories of my first year of teaching.

The journaling is mostly hidden. It's done in the school colours of red/white/black.

Oh Maria!!
These look gorgeous!!
I'm sure Jessica will love her album and she will look back on it in years to come. Such a great present and the journalling prompts are a great idea!!
Your other one is gorgeous! Love the colours and what a good idea to do an album for.
I think you may become addicted to them!
I can be at times. I love them.
It took me a bit to get the hang of them at first and hated them when I finished my first one. But I am addicted now. ;o)
Can't wait to see some more that you do.
