Mixed Media Album by ~Nadia Canizzo

Goodmorning everyone. I hope this post finds you well. 

I decided this month to create an album for my 4 month old baby Sofia for her first year. I wanted to do a month by month picture album with a little blurb about anything exciting that happened that month. I take a photo of her each month on the 17th as that is the date she was born in May, so why not make a nice keepsake out of it? 

I used this album from Want2Scrap

Assorted Rectangles - Corrugated Album

Did you know that Donna has designed many great products for Want2Scrap and that they are available at their online store HERE. They do also ship internationally and shipping is very affordable on all of these items :))

Now here are some close ups. 

The album came with 8 jump rings which I decorated with some The Greatest View chevron trim and other trims from my stash. 

I added my own trims on the edges of some of the papers for extra detail

Here is what it looks like inside..

and of course the rest of the pages are blank for me to add photos to over the next few months..

Sure hope you liked my project and are inspired to try something similar
