About a month ago I got together with a few friends who wanted me to do a project with them - some kind of fall minibook. I made a sample using some paper bags, corrugated cardboard and some very old papers I had left over from my Recollections days almost 5 years ago! It felt good to put these to good use as I still think they are beautiful.
Our daughter and son-in-law just bought their first house in Austin and are planning to invite both sides of the family for Thanksgiving so I decided to make this a memento of their first holiday in their new house. It has lots of room for photos and journaling.

I love how the book turned out. It was fun to work on a personal project for a change and be able to use some of my hoarded supplies! I hope Kelly will like it and enjoy the memories it will hold for years to come.
