I couldn't just take a picture of the front of the album, because you wouldn't really be able to tell anything about it that way, so I took four separate pictures and made a collage using Picasa. Here are the individual pictures, so you can see things a little better:Heather Plotzke held. Heather is a CTMH consultant who comes up with some AMAZING projects! You can reach her CTMH blog by clicking here.
The base for the album was a kids' size flip-flop. We started by tracing the outline of the flip-flop onto a piece of heavier paper (almost like chipboard), so we could have a pattern. Using that pattern, we then traced the shape onto patterned paper, which we in turn adhered to the accordion-fold sections (which we had already cut out). The butterflies were from a CTMH stamp set Heather provided us with, as were the letters (Sorry, but I don't remember which sets!). As you can see, I have YET to add the pictures to my album, but I'm sure I will by the end of this summer!
We would LOVE to see what kind of mini-album you can create! Be sure to link it up to the Lasting Memories blog by Saturday, then check back on Sunday to see if you made the Top 3.

You're in luck! I'm one of the DT members who's offering up some blog candy! I picked up some homemade mini-albums a while back at the customer garage sale that's held by my LSS, and I decided I'm not going to be using all of the ones I picked up, so I'll be giving away these two:
