Tim's Tag Book

Good day my creative friends,  Linda Ledbetter's challenge is in ...... so we have a bit of time to have fun and play with our toys....   Now ...... my bIG heartthrob is..........................are you ready................................... .... .............Mini Albums...

I have about 16 to 20 normal big albums for the kids, and for the family..(I think the family has only one maybe two......   BUT..... with my mini albums ...... that is a different story.. to many to count...

I find them easier to make and layout my fotos.. everything fits... the story just flows like a storybook....... So much more fun... 'cause its MY book and there are now rules..... .love every moment with a mini album.. choosing the paper.. 6x6" or 8x8" works well..

I like to start a Mini album...take the weekend and finish it. (I don't always .... sometimes it take me all of a month ..... to finish.   From choosing the paper... the layout of your book.......putting everything together... have a lot of extra for just incase you need something ... for that certain spot....

Well.... 8 Years ago I started working on mini albums... the first ones were eewh..well... I'll keep them.. like they say...... practice makes perfect.... but Most important..... I am enjoying the journey!!! I will share one album a week ....

Well ..... here goes......

this tag book I saw on the internet and no where could I see what is done in the inside of the book... I NEED to make one of these because they are so supercool...!!!
Low and behold... Tim came to visit us as The Mount Nelson for a jam packet class.. AND THERE IT WAS..... a sample of his tag book..... jipeee.. his tagbook inspired me to make my own and play to my hearts content.

Here is mine...

 And the inside... All made out of tags.. some pages turn and some lift..






Now I must just add some photos..
Hope you enjoyed the tag book as much as I did..
Thank you for visiting..
