Creative Cuts & More Album Blog Hop

Welcome to this months Creative Cuts & More Blog Hop!!!
My Paper Pretties Wednesday Challenge card is below this post. :0)

You should have arrived from Dawn's blog.
If you want to start at the beginning of the hop go here!

My project is an 8 x 8 album. I started with a "Decorative Window 8 x 8 Album" in Lemon Bliss Bazzill Smoothies Cardstock because I wanted to make a Band memory album for my son and his school colors and green and gold.

This is how the cover comes.

and these are all the pages that come with it.

Here it is decorated.
I used rings to hold the album together and decorated with different ribbons that I had around.

I found this great music note punch from EK success that I know will get a lot of use with all the band pictures from both my kids that I need to scrap!

The green letters are by Making Memories.
All the black music notes and sentiments are by The Paper Studio from Hobby Lobby.

Can't forget about concert band...

These pictures only filled half the album but my son is only a junior so I know I'll be adding more pictures! This album is perfect for making a quick memory album. What I've done so far only took me a couple of hours. It's a great gift idea too!

I hope you got some ideas and inspiration from my album.

Now hop on over to see what Kim's been working on!
