A baseball Album I made

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.

Really cute. He will treaure it. I still remember the playhouse my dad built for us. Your grandson will always have fond memories of what his dad is building for him.
