Fathers Day book


I haven't blogged for abit but I do have an excuse.....I have a condition called "costochondritis".
Pain caused by costochondritis may mimic that of a heart attack or other heart conditions (that's the definition) I think all the stress in my life finally caught up with my body and this kicked in big time. So I took my meds, rested ALLOT and just chilled out. We even did some fishing over the week-end and at this moment I feel all better. When it happens it can be real scarey as I don't know if it is the "real thing" or not.



I made this little paper bag album for my Kevin for father's day. He has been such a great step dad to my sons, a great grandfather and a great husband with little recognition from anyone. So while he went golfing with his dad I spent the day doing this.




















I used everything from staples to ribbons to paperclips and I think it turned out well. There are 3 pockets with tags that pull out and also have pictures on them too.

















I also liked that I tried a different way of making this album......instead of closing it and punching holes on the outside to tie........I opened it to the middle and made 2 sets of holes on the top and bottom and threaded ribbons thru them and tied them on the outside. Made a big difference!
I hope to get another project done today since it will be in the 90's so stay tuned!
