The following pictures are for what I call a tabletop album, I saw a picture of something like this last year and I had to come up with a way to to make it.  Here it is, I bought a tabletop picture frame, took it all apart and used the cardboard backing, the part that will allow it to sit up-right on a table.  Then I bought a 3x5 index- card book, the kind with the metal mechanism that opens, my loving husband pounded out the rivets holding the metal part to the plastic. I just used brads to attach the mechanism to the card board piece that I had already covered with paper.  Then I just made little pages to go on the rings and decorated it all up using the Monkey Adventures line since it was so fitting for our trip!  On the paper  for the skiing pictures I put a little snow writer on some of the trees to make it even more fitting. In the word Colorado I used the I-top tool for the 'O' well I actually didn't use the tool, my hands are too small to use the tool. So I just put a thin piece of adhesive on the brad, lay my paper on it, give it a lite spray of water to help reduce the 'fold' marks and then folded everything to the back and squeezed the back piece on, works much better that way for me!

The next item I would like to share is for the pictures I have received from graduates over the years. What to do with them after they come off the refrigerator!  I used a manila folder, cut off all the tabs, scored one more time on each side and then once about 3-4 inches from the bottom. I used Graduation Celebration to cover the folder and the chipboard quotes are perfect for embellishing!  I know I have more pictures of Grads somewhere and I have plenty of pockets to put them in when I find them!
