I really enjoyed making the little album. I got the rubons at a crop a few months back as part of a free give away. I do have some extras from the set if I need to do more embellishment after I add pictures. The patterned paper was some I got from ABC distributing YEARS ago. I used Bazzill card stock for the plain.

This is the cover. I did use some ribbon to tie the book closed. I also used my deckle blade that came with my purple cows trimmer for the decorative edges. I was using my big Zig glue pen but it ran out on me so I finshed up with a Scotch 2 way glue pen.
I tried to leave some big areas for pictures, but I still wanted some decorative pages also. I used some ink for the edges *okie so loves inked edges*. Again with the rub ons. There were actually quite a few on that little sheet!
I wasn't sure how the orange would look but I think it added some extra color to the little album and I do like the way it looks. All the patterned paper came in a set so I thought I might as well use it.
Of course there will be eating involved during the holiday of Freedom! So I was glad there were some rub ons to make a comment about that. I left an area above the rub on so I can add a picture also.
Since we are going to be out on the boat Saturday I thought I needed a page for that and luckily there were some rub ons that had to so with water too! *okie just notices there are NO STICKLES ON THIS PROJECT!!
