Craft Project: Forrest's Album

My sister Gina asked me to assemble a photo album for her oldest son, Forrest. She gave me a box of photos and album supplies at Christmas. I just sat down for an hour to look at them last night. I think I'm going to enjoy this project. She had put a lot of the photos in envelopes labeled with their subject, but a lot more were just floating around in the box. I spent three hours this morning going through the loose photos and sorting them by the batch and sequences numbers on the backs. I feel much more in control now. I'm going to have to put some text next to the pictures so last night I called Gina and asked her who some of the more frequent faces were. Subjects and themes are fairly obvious. But it will be nice to put names to faces. There are a bunch of cards that people sent for various occasions. I'm thinking of using them for extra decoration on the pages. The finished pages will go in plastic sleeves so that means cards can't be opened once they are mounted. I have some ideas on how to work around that. The plastic sleeves protect the pages and keep things from getting lost if they come unglued. But it does take a bit away from the texture.

neat project- are you going to add your artistic hand to it? I bet it'll be awesome! :)
That is the idea. I have a bit more sorting to do before I start gluing. And I wish I had a table I could spread out on.
want me to bug Bu to see if we have an extra table you can have?
Sure
