Mini Heritage Album

Hope you all had a Happy Thanksgiving holiday--either with family/friends or all alone, just relaxing!

I spent quite a bit of time this past week working on four heritage mini albums that are gifts for my mom to give to her sisters. She purchased the great little Pemberley Bay Matchbook Kits, and I had the pleasure of putting them together for her. What an opportunity to recount my blessings of family as I created these! (All four were the same, so I made one and then "copied" the rest.) Now I'll be making one for myself too!

Since Amberley Grace goes with these kits, I used cardstock and ribbon from that collection. This was my first PB Matchbook Kit, so it was fun to be creative with something new. Mom wanted them fairly simple, so I think (hope!) I accomplished simple yet pretty.

I have one of these kits and I haven't been able to work it out as nicely as you've done. I never thought of heritage pics. Those Black and white pics with that paper are just great!

Diane, these are just beautiful...I think you certainly made it elegant but simple. They are going to be cherished for a long time!!
