Our favorite things

I'm back for one last post.  This one will have lots of pictures however.  It's a little album that I made using some paper bags for signatures and some cardboard box for the cover.  I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.

I made all kinds of sections and then had the 6 of us write on a little card what was our favorite things.

So here's the cover I used a bunch of different tags and papers from my stash as well as from Simple stories.  Love those little sentiments and things.

The letters are from October afternoon.  I used a little brad and ribbon as the closer.
Here's the side view of all the signatures tied together.  As mentioned all the signature were done with some paper bags.  I used some metal beads as well.
 Here's the backview of the album.  I used some paper that I wrinkled up and some old book pages as well.
 Here's the look opened up.
 The 1st section was about the favorite season.

 I used a great digi from the set Snow family set one from Rick St-Dennis

 And here's a view of the next signature next to the season one.
For the sport one I used a digi from Lacy Sunshine as the cover

 The next section was about movies.

 Then I made one about tv shows.

 The following one was about music

 Then one about games (I used some Yu gi oh cards as the decoration
 As well as some bingo chips and some playing cards.
 After that it was about food!

 I used the great digi from Simply Betty that was a freebie for the ending of that signature.
 And my last signature was about books.  I used some comic book cut out for that one.

I'm pretty happy with how this turned out!!!  It was a fun project and allowed me to capture some memories for the family!!!

I'm entering this album in the following challenges:

That's it for me!  Have a great day.
