I worked on these two albums from March until Thanksgiving. When I didn't feel like card making I would pull these out and work on them a little at a time. My sister-in-law is a scrapbooker and has done spiral bound albums. I hope this inspires her to make a bound album.
I am entering both albums in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Make It Sparkle.
