I took a class at my LSS to create the base for a mini-album. I gotta tell ya, it was amazing! I'm so glad I was able to take it because I learned a lot and I know I'm going to make many more of these.
It was hard taking photos of a black on black album but I hope you can see how cool it is.
If you're in Central CA or nearby, I highly recommend this class by Katie at Katie's World. She makes fabulous album kits and page kits. Check her out!
