Family Blog Hop

Family is a special word that means more then those that are actually related to us. It is a word that means those that are close to us. Those that are there for us when we cry or laugh and just want to talk. Families are special and this is a special time to be thankful for our family be it big or small, near or far. Please join our crafters as they celebrate families through their creativeness and love.

Our hostess is Jearise from http://lorbysworld.blogspot.com and she will be having a special give away on her blog so make sure you start with her blog to see the prize and how to enter the drawing.

Here is my idea of FAMILY.

I have been slowly working on this family themed paper bag mini album for a long time. It's one of those half finished projects that we all have and ignore in our craft rooms. I decided to pull it out and start working on it again. It's not done yet, and I'll probably change some things by the time it's done, but here's the progress so far. :)

Essentially for a paper bag album you fold the flap up, then glue them all together. Here is a video I found on Youtube that can describe the construction better than I can. Then, all you have to do is decorate it how you want to. 


I love having this album dedicated to family.

Thank you for stopping by today and now please continue on to Lluvia's blog.
