Baseball Mini Album

Hello and happy Friday (aka, the-only-day-my-youngest-goes-to-school-with-a-smile-on-her-face :)
This morning I finished up an album I started yesterday. I had all of these ideas in my head---I wanted to create an album for my son using pictures from his old baseball team. He was asked to play select ball this time last year and he played with most of these kids for the past year (some were on his little league team the year before.)
Because of the travel and time commitment, we became pretty close to the team and the other families. It was so hard to leave them when we had to move. But I have a TON of pictures and I thought it would be nice to get some of them together for him.
The problem---I couldn't find the pictures. We had tucked them in a plastic bin right before we moved and after tearing the house apart----I just found the bin this morning!! Woohoo!

I received my very first Little Yellow Bicycle patterned paper this week. I am seriously impressed with the quality of this paper. It is beautiful, thick and the designs are exceptional. You will definitely be seeing more of it on this blog (now that I have come out from under the large rock I was living under!) This album was created with their Get Your Game On collection. They feature lots of sports but I got the baseball and football since that is what my son plays.

Anyway...here is the album cover: Pages 1-2:


Pages 3-4:




Pages 5-6:


Back cover:



This came together in no time because this collection has fabulous embellishments that coordinate with the papers.




Hope you have a wonderful weekend!


Thanks for stopping by!

This was really neat and I checked their website out as well but I have two girls that play volleyball and softball (I know I could use some of the intems for softball) but I will keep checking back. the little book was awesome would be a great gift for a coach. Thanks for sharing.
