Butterfly Album


Hello everyone...hope all is well with you!!!! We are still busy around here with our house guests and the 5 little boys pups who think they are human!!! I haven't been in the craft room much in the last week but I did want to share the butterfly album I made a couple months ago. My daughter Holly and I played together one Saturday...we both had a butterfly album and a bucket full of embellishements!!! This is what I came up with.....
First we covered the chipboard with designer paper

This is what the island in my craft room looked like when we got started....you couldn't even see the counter when we were finished!!!!


My first page has a picture of my parents and the second  page is a picture of my children (the older 3) when they were much younger and my two nephews and niece...

These pages feature pictures of George and me and my sister's family.

Now we start with the Grands...Ryan, age 11, Caitlyn, age 5, and Autumn at age 3 and age 13.
CJ  at age 10 (she is now 17) is on the first page and Mackenzie (who is almost 13 now) with Grandma Great.

Ryan and Caitlyn in their soccer poses and Grandma Great with Jacob (who is almost 3 now)

This page features pictures of Cody and Cole acting like the crazy little boys they are and Cody (who is now 9) takes center stage on the second page!

Cole (who is now 8) played football last year and Gabe (now at age 5) loved to play baseball.

This page is devoted to my big kids...Brian and Laura, Holly and John, David, and Steve.

This picture was taken at Mom's 90th birthday party two years ago...she is with all her Great Grandkiddos!!

Well, that's all, folks!!! Thanks for stopping by and letting me show off my wonderful family!!!!

That is an awesome book. I love how you added all the generations. I need to make some small books like that. Great job! I'm sure you and your daughter had fun making your books.

This is really lovely, Joan. Such a wonderful way to keep your treasured family photo's....which are all wonderful!! I keep saying I must start scrapping, but I never seem to get around to it. I should do an album about my dear parents who are no longer with us xx
