Famili Mini Album

Sad to say, its Sunday and tomorrow starts yet another work week :( 
But with a nice relaxing Sunday comes time to create..So, I was asked by my co-worker to make her mom a mini album and she handed me a bunch of pictures of them when they were little.. After going though the lot, I decided to make a Family mini .. Thought it would go best with the photos I had to work with..
and so.. Here it is:
This is a  6x6 chipboard mini album.. I bought some Bo Bunny refills from Floren over at Generations Crafting cause they really are inexpensive and they are so easy work with.. no cutting chipboard or punching holes, Hallelujah!!..LOL

lets ge to the insides:
the tag says: All because two people fell in love.. I added crackle accents to the tag.. it blurred the text just a little bit.. not sure if thats normal or not.. but I stuck with it.. then on the right I added three small journaling tags.. she can write down all kinds of memories on there..
once you flip the little memories page, you get to this page.. and the tag says: "Love makes a family!".. This is my co-worker when she was a baby with her mom and dad..
Here I added another photo of her holding the babydoll and the journaling says "Thank heavens for little girls!"
then their is an accetate tag, which also has a photo of her and her mom..
flip the accetate tag and this is what the little pocket opens up to..
their are photos of her with her grandparents and then the top is of her and her dad..
the tag says "A grandparents love is forever!"..
She said they are no longer with us, so I'm sure this will be a very special page for her mom.
On this page, she had some photos of them (siblings) dancing and thought it was an absolutely adorable photo.. I added the text "Together, its the place to be!"..
and on the left had side is a flip open photo matt , where I have added a photo of all three kids.. and it says "Yours, Mine and Ours!".. and I also added a pull out tag onto the side, where she can fill in more of the photos details..
for this page, I found a photo of them playing in a berry field.. so, thought it was a nice picture to add since it has her grandfather in it as well.. and the text says " A family that plays together, stays together!"..
the right side is an accetate page, which I stampped some images on it and added bling.. with a photo of all three kids together..
flip the accetate page and you have an envelope pocket page.. Inside is a photo of to go with the berry field photo and I added a journaling spot on the inside as well.. 
and for the very last pages..
on the left is a birthday page  and is says " another year older!" and on the right, a christmas page with all three kids together and it say s" Through out the years!"..

I thought these photos were the best selection for this mini album.. It really was difficult to create this using someone elses photos, since they are her memories and not mine.. I hope she likes this mini cause I love it!!
It was a lot of hard work and took me a long time to complete..
I want to thank you all so much for stopping by and taking a look.. It really means a lot to me..
Have a great week and creative week everyone..
Spring-e Hugs :)
