Memory Album

Good morning everyone.

Its time for a new challenge at Diva's by Design. This weeks it's everyone's favourite anything goes!
We have a fabulous sponsor for this challenge in the form of Iva Nova Chest...........

I have tried something a little different for me this time. A colleague at work asked if I would make her a memory album for a friend. The brief was to create an album for a Moroccan  gentleman who was very organised, loved life and bright colours and most of all liked every thing to be on time.

It tool me 2 weeks to finally finish the book and I am so pleased with the way it came out but was a little worried if I had got the brief right. I needn't have worried because my colleague loved it.

Sorry it's a bit photo heavy!

I have used a mixture of Kaiser craft papers for the book (sorry I don't know what they are called). I also managed to find some leather look black paper which was perfect for this project. I have used a hidden binding system for this book which was demoed on You tube by Kathy Orta and after using this technique I don't think I will use any thing else!

Thanks for stopping by

I love your book Sugar and it sounds as if you hit the jack pot!! Hmmmm, a Moroccan glentleman - that sounds intriguing! Jayne you did a wonderful job with this. I will see if I can find the you tube about how you did the binding. Great work!!
