I made this awesome little album for my grandson Alex who is 7 years old and playing baseball on Monday nights. I haven't got to see any games but had a few pictures sent to me which is what I used to start this album.
I used a blank 8 1/2 x11 portfolio. Notice the cute baseball brads that I found to use in here! On the cover I used 2 of them with some ribbon to make a closure.
The inside has 2 mini albums in the middle to add pictures as the summer goes along.
The left side I made a pocket underneath the picture of him ....maybe he will put in score sheets from the games. The big word Baseball on the middle flap is a raindot from the Fiskars line. So are the words like at bat etc and the little baseball bat & baseball. They sure added a little extra bling to this project.
I will be waiting to hear what he thought of it as he was off with his dad when I stopped by yesterday so I missed seeing him & spending some time with him. Next time I need to make my plans more firm after driving all those hours.
But to my surprise I got to see the HUGE treehouse my son was building for him. It even had windows and a foldup bench he could sit or sleep on. Hard to imagine anyone having the talent to build something like that without even having plans. I took some pictures but can't wait to see the finished product. I'm sure Alex will remember it all his life and really enjoy it during his childhood.
