Once Upon a Time Album

From my paper collection I pulled a paper-stack from DCWV called ONCE UPON A TIME.
Having  purchased this paper awhile ago not knowing exactly what I would do with it right then, but loved it and knew I had to have it. I also knew that I would one day find the perfect project to use it.   Well, I finally found that perfect project for my paper-stack.

 My cousin Jermery has two beatiful little girls that he calls his princess's.  So I decided to honor Princess Lily and Princess Fiona
with my storybook ONCE UPON A TIME papers.


I choose to make this album with a 6" x 12" layout using chipboard.  But I did put a little twist to it by having it open in the center, so I cut all but the back cover 6" x 6" and did a wire binding with my chinch on both sides.  This gave me  a 24" layout.  Plenty of room for all of the Princess's pictures.

Having plenty of room for pitcures I decided to cut them out and make a collage with them since I had quite a few I wanted to use.

I used the left side of the album to focus on Princess Lily trying to show  her personality,

while using the right side to do the same for Princess Fiona's .
 I love that there were pictures of the girls in their princess gowns and of each of them with a Unicorn how perfect.

 I also put a 6" x 6" Clear Craft Plastic sheet from Recollections between each page to help protect the pictures from sticking.
and to do a little journaling on them with a fine point Sharpe marker,

                              Daddy and the Princess's                           .


This was a fun page, because with every princess comes the Knight in Shinning Armor, if you look
carefully you will see him riding up on his horse.

Well maybe not exactly a white horse, but their daddy (the Knight) does drive a #23 Orange Race Car. (Way better....).
Sir Jermery's biggest fans, Princess Lily and Princess Fiona.

Of course we can't forget about Mommy and her Princess's.

And I couldn't resist putting in some Halloween pictures.

My cousin Jermery and his wife Jennifer made a fantasic Alice and the Mad Hatter.
Lovin it.

Just more of Princess Lilly and Princess Fiona doing what they do best.
Girls Just Wanta Have Fun.

And the last page (inside of the back cover) which is the 6" x 12" page.  Is the Princess's with their family.
