BFF Gift

I made a very special gift for my BFF for Christmas. It's a scrapbook with pictures of our hunting and fishing adventures in it.....that's my BFF on the far right below. Also picture (l. to r.) is my mom, me and my WONDERFUL sister-in-law, Barb.

WARNING: If you click on the photos to blow up the images so you can see the actual pictures on the scrap pages, you will see dead animals. YES - that's right...this is a hunting/fishing scrapbook and we do get some stuff once in awhile - LOL! If you don't like looking at dead animals....don't go any further. Don't put a comment on my blog about how you're going to "unsubscribe" because you think I'm horrible for hunting......that's what I do and I don't care what you think about it - *wink* With that being said - continue on.....

I really wish I would have taken a photo before I got started...but I wasn't thinking straight....not unusual! LOL Most people don't even know that SU sells these albums...they are on page 183 of the NEW catalog for only $13.95. The On Board Album comes in 8 1/2 x 8 1/2 and they are made of chipboard. This was soooooooo PERFECT for my project because I wanted to cover it with scrapbooking paper. I'm sad to say...SU doesn't have any outdoorsie paper, so I had to visit my local scrap store - OPPS....NOW COME all do it from time to time! LOL

Here's a picture of the cover and spine. All I did was apply Modge Podge to the back of the paper and glue it on - SUPER SIMPLE. And you can have an album in any pattern/color you want - HOW COOL IS THAT????

Here's the inside of the cover before I finished it with some more paper.
I put a photo on the front from our fishing trip to Devils Lake, North Dakota. I get the BEST sunset pictures out there!

Thanks for looking!
