Tin box mini album Cover/ page 1

My little cousin passed away this week and I wasn't able to go home to the funeral. I wanted to do something that would help her little girl remember her mother. I made this little mini album of some of the photos of the 4th of July. They let Becca go for the day so she could spend it with her daughter. I am very proud of this album and I hope that it is something Alli can look at when she get older. I hope she can look at the photos and see how much her mother loved her.

Paper roses/leaves are recollections
Patterned paper is from SU
Letter are cut @ 1" from the storybook cartridge.
I used the Tim Holtz distressing toy and distressed the outside of the patterned paper. 
Also used my Hot glue gun, glue dots (didn't hold very well) and my ATG.

On the inside cover I used the patterned paper for SU
I am rose, small petals, Glimmer misted with candy apple red glimmer mist
heart brads from my stash (recollections)
metal from making memory family embossed metal set
Frame cut from white CS with clear CS with black dot from SU at 4.63 X 4.49cut from the storybook cartridge
Also used glue dots, atg and black micron 01 pen.

The accordion album itself was cut from real red SU cardstock. I got the measurements from a tutorial online. I went back to get the name and I couldn't find it again. I will continue to look.
You will need 2 pieces of 9 1/2 X 5 1/8 paper and 1 piece of 9 X 5 1/8 paper for the base.
I then scored it every 4 1/2 inches using the Martha Stewart score board.
Look for more pages to come!!

As always thank you for stopping by
