No Rules!

Today's "Album"

Hi Everyone.  For this weeks Simon Says Challenge, there are no rules. I decided to enter this mini-album, which really isn't mini into this weeks contest. I love this album. I believe it was simple stories paper used. This is Kathy Orta's style mini, but of course I changed some things up to make it my own. I really like how it turned out!

I love this album. The camera I cut out from the simple stories paper and glued to foam to "pop" it out! I love the sewing and the flowers, it all works together!

I stamped little stamps onto some kraft paper and then cut them out. Then I sewed them onto some paper and made it look like luggage! 

A look at the mini just as you open it. There is a nice big pocket on the inside core. As you can see I used a Tim Holtz Binder tool to bind this mini. I used a Martha Stewart Punch. 

A look at the inside extra travel passport I made. I thought it looked quite cool! 

The Norsgirl made this originally. You can find her on you-tube. It is quite neat. You just pull up the tag and it opens! 

Tim Holtz papers, I love that world paper! 

I'm so happy and pleased to say this album made top 3 in Simon Says Stamp Challenge! Thanks SSS!
