Quick Quotes Friday Challenge

This challenge was perfect for me. August 9th I will be celebrating my 14th year anniversary. I decided to make a mini album for my husband. I used the August Club Q page kit and the August Canvas kit for my album. These kits come with detailed instructions on how to make pages and the Canvas mini album, however, I re purposed the kits to make my own version. These kits are so versatile. You can recreate their ideas or create your own like I did. The front and back covers of my album are canvas pieces. The inside is accordion style like the Canvas kit explains. I put pictures of myself and our 2 girls on the inside pages. There are pockets with tags on the opposite sides of each picture. On my tag I wrote a personal message to my husband. I then wrote on each of the girls tags traits that they each have that came from their Dad.

For the back of my album, I inked the edges and stamped my thumbprints into a heart shape.
Materials for my album: August Club Q page and Canvas kits, Quick Quotes powderpuff inks Mocha Mama, and Maraschino Cherry, October Afternoon mini stickers, and American Craft thickers.
