TP mini album - my very first album. EVER!

Hi Everyone!  Below are pics of my very first album.  I am really pleased with it :)  I made it for my in-laws to remember their little girl who died from Leukemia when she was five years old - Linda Marie Satchell.  She was 3 years older than my Chuck, who is 40...  I am planning to help them add pictures to this and some journaling...

I was inspired to make this by Linda Marie and also by the encouragement of a good friend of mine - Carey :) who is an awesome scrapper!!!!

Ingredients are below the pics.  Oh, and there was one comment from earlier and even earlier than that! about my secret new toy - it is the Cinch from We R Memory Keepers.  I used it to bind my mini :)

- 5 rolls of TP (we use Scott, in case y'all were wondering!)
- 5 sheets of coordinating paper (I used Basic Grey)
- various eyelets, ribbon, embellishments, lots of love
- Tools used: Crop-a-Dile, Cinch, Cuttlebug (to cut and emboss the butterflies)
- Various adhesives

Note: tags were cut to fit right in the TP roll at 4.5" by 2.375" (the next line after 2.25)

Tata for now!

That is a really cute TP album. A friend of mine just put one together, she made hers a calender. I need to try this out!

It turned out so super cute. Great color combo. I am thinking about trying to make one myself. You give me hope that I might be able to do it.

thank you ladies! TP is toilet paper! :) I used our empty rolls to make this album :)

This is really special Mariam! I still don't get where the toilet paper rolls were used, but it looks awesome!

thank you ladies!

The (void of actual toilet paper) rolls were flattened and then covered with paper which made up the album :) one end was bound using the cinch and a tag was inserted in the other end :) SO much fun!!!!
