Remember the little mini album I was working on last week? Here's how it turned out. Had to use my last little wobbly turkey :-) Although I have to fess up about a big creative deviation I had to take.
Originally I wanted it to be a hostess gift for my neighbor who invited us for dinner Thanksgiving Day. I thought it would be cool to have everyone at dinner write a note of Thanks to her and document what they were grateful for. Kind of a nice keepsake - even though I know the guys would have just rolled their eyes. I guess they should be thankful they were spared from having to do that as I messed up the construction of the album.
Even though Debbie told me not to adhere the ribbon on both covers, I did it anyway - not out of stubbornness mind you, but just because I wasn't paying attention. And lo and behold, she was right - the accordion folded part of the album didn't unfold. Dang it!
But I saved it by adhering the back / open part of of the folded pages together and then cutting on the front folds. That turned it into a conventional little book which Cricut Man and I will use to preserve some Thanksgiving pictures and thoughts for this year.
Gotta love those Creative Deviations, huh?!
