Happy October!

I was outside this weekend decorating my wagon wheel for Fall! Here in the Northeast we are having an Indian Summer!  The weather has been fabulous!! Temperatures this past weekend were in the 60's and today and tomorrow are suppose to be in the 70's and may hit 80!  Who says summer is over!  The leaves are starting to change in the southern part of Maine so I used some fake leaves to decorate my wheel but they feel real--does that count!    October is also a birthday month in our family.  My son turns 30 in a couple of weeks.  I wanted to show what I made him!  He lives in San Francisco so I have to get it in the mail in the next couple of days.

Easy to make!
This is called a vertical TP (toilet paper) mini album by mysistersscrapper.  Check out her video for complete instructions.  I have a few of her mini albums and she has great videos to follow.  I used Graphic 45 paper for the album and the little button is from Tim Holtz.

Now this little guy is turning 30!
When you open up the album there are 6 sections to put pictures.  The sections are actually toilet paper holders flattened and then covered with paper.  There are tags inside to journal about the pictures. I put pictures of Eric as he was growing up.  I think he will get a kick out of it!

Side view

This side view shows the sections and you can put pictures on both sides which gives you places for 12 pictures and then on the inside and outside cover which will give you a total of 14 pictures.

The tags fits inside each section so that you can journal about the picture. I had a lot of fun doing this --hope you give it a try.  I made another one which is more feminine which I might save for my daughter.  Have fun!

Love SU flower buttons!
