'Perfect' Mini Album - Crafty Gals Corner Challenge

This week the challenge is to create something for a boy or a man, so using my son for inspiration I decided to make something for him. A one sheet wonder mini album for my 'perfect'* little boy!! :)

* Disclaimer - This is not always entirely true, like today... but I shan't dwell on these details :)

Here is my mini album:


I used the image 'Perfect' as I want my son to always believe these words. I hate that as a society we place these ideals on ourselves, but I won't start on that as I'll never stop :)


Some peeky-peeks inside :) :




Inside fully opened out with belly bands

The back

I've kept the mini album as clean and simple as possible, as I want him to be able to use it. Hence the Painted Tim Holtz clip instead of ribbon. I can't wait to get some photos and little tags with notes in there for him. Hopefully it will be something he keeps and can look at when he's older.

Papers used were Animal Antics by First Edition (these albums are a great way to use up 6 x 6 pads)

The little images and labels are from Kaisercraft Collectables.


If you're about to create something for a boy/guy come and enter it into our challenge at Crafty Gals Corner, we'd love to see you there!!

Take care
Georgie xx

    1. Hi Anne, so glad you stopped by, and thank you for your lovely comment. He is enjoying playing with this, but I'm kind of on watch though as he's still at the lets-see-what-happens-if-I-rip-this stage of life :) xx
