LESSology Challenge # 25



Here's my DT sample for the challenge


A San Francisco mini album



my son and I went to San Francisco last summer


it was great that I get to spent some time with him alone



I try to keep the pages clean and simple




after I bind the pages together, I cut a piece of the chipboard backing (those that came with your online scrapbooking supplies), punch a few holes (to match the ring of the album)


and then use twine to tie the ring to the chipboard piece 


this is how it looked on the side after tightened everything


final step is to cut 2 pieces of denim from my girl's old jeans


stitch around the edges and then glue it to the album


I hope you come play along with us, because you could be the lucky winner for....



a lovely prize package consists of a Lawn Fawn stamp set and 6x6 paper pad, courtesy of our design team member Lynnda Hosni!

So hop over right now!!!
