I'm so happy!
Yesterday my book arrived: 12 inch, 120 pages filled with my Lay-Outs!
It looks só good!!


This is the cover I made with my "Grungy"kit:

The newspaper is from March 12-1930, the day that my father was born.
I took a photo of the newspaper and made it a little grungy :wink:
It's in the scrapkit as a spread.

Looks gorgeous, Els! Thanks for sharing the photos and reminding us why we digiscrap and how our pages can really be made into keepsakes!

Thank you!

Yes, I can show a photo of the book, but holding it shows how big it is!:wink:
Grungy was my very first scrapkit and I'm still in love with it LOL!

I want to do one! It looks beautiful! All my layouts are printed and in a binder, but the binders end up looking old and faded and the layouts end up slipping out. A book would be perfect. Thank you so much for sharing!

Sure I can, but... as you know I am Dutch, so it is a Dutch company: www.albelli.nl
Don't know if they send to America...

Looks fabulous Els - kudos to you. What a great memory you are going to have for your whole family. That's on my "to do" list, get books printed out for my family members. Awesome job!

In this book all things are mixed: it was a very special offer (50%) and there was not much time.
So I put in all the LO's I made for challenges and for my Scrap4Hire, just in order they were made.

The next book I will make is from the second 5 years with my husband, that will go in order of date.
We have a lot of photos from us together and I make spreads with these.

The book of the first 5 years was A4 format, but now we have seen 12 inch, I will make the second book that format, it looks so much better!

And ofcourse when my grandson is born, I will make a book of his first year. :wink:
