Easter Album

I've been away from blogland for over a week.  Illness in the family and a quick "girl's trip" kept me away.  I'm back with some photos of an Easter album that I'm working on.  This is the title page and the first two pages of the album book.  My inspiration was a Valentine Album by Twyla and Lindsey on the Two Crazy Crafters.  If you haven't visited their blog, you are in for a real treat.  Their work is wonderful.

The Crazy Crafters album was made from paper bags.  I'm using a recycled children's book.  I cut the pages from the book and sanded them before glueing on the background paper.  I plan to use scrapbook papers in my stash and other embellishments from the studio.  (My goal for the year)  These two pages include Easter photos of our sons, Paul and John.  I'm planning to use the granddaughter's photos on the next pages.

I just googled "vintage Easter images" and found most of the images there. I'm not sure of the websites but I'll look them up for you.

The little albums are habit forming, I hoping to do another and my sister is now working on one.
