Convention Contest Album 2013

Carolyn's entry into the CTMH Album contest for 2013
This year's instructions:
  • Create 5 double page 12x12 layouts
  • Submit at convention before 7 pm on Wednesday, June 26, 2013
  • This year's theme is VIVA - "Live"
I chose to interpret this by creating an album called....

HOW TO LIVE
WITH A BURCH BOY
For The Rest Of Your Life

Once again, I used lots of flip flaps, slides, pulls and slide outs with hidden journaling.  There are only 5 double page layouts but I am sharing LOTS of pictures with close ups of the journaling and showing each layout with the flip flaps both open and closed.

  1. What a wonderful legacy for your family. It brought tears to my eyes. You must have countless hours of love poured into this album. Carolyn, it sounds like you had a MIL who was exceptionally kind and wise and it seems she has passed that onto you. Your future daughter in law is very lucky in so many ways. Many blessings to your family.
