Finish it Friday! Family Reunion Mini Album


Last year (I think it was last year), I purchased this really cute paper pack called “Family Reunion” by Echo Park at Flossie Scrappers.  It was a Mini Theme set and only came with 6 each 12×12 papers and an 6×12 sticker sheet.  Now, I’m not sure WHY I only bought one with it being such a small pack.  But I did.  I proceeded to make a mini Family album out of chipboard that measures 9 1/4″ wide x 8″ tall.  It has 10 cardstock base pages and they measure 8 1/2″ wide x 7 1/2″ tall.  I was adding in flips, flaps and pockets and patterning it as I went.  Then I ran out of patterned paper.  Yep.  I needed more so I set it aside with the intent of buying more and forgot.  So here it is a year later and the album is still unfinished.  As with most paper lines a year later is way to long to even think of finding it again.  I’ll just have to match it up to some other collection or use similar solid colors.  It’s appropriate that I pulled this album out of my unfinished basket as next weekend is my annual family reunion.  We’ll be camping at Mineral Wells State Park here in Texas.  I hope it doesn’t rain!

Here’s what I had done so far on the album:

As you can see, I didn’t get far.  I now need more paper in similar prints and colors to finish this album.

With this album I am re-starting my “Finish it Friday” series.  I have several projects that I need to finish and this will be the first one.  I  hope to work on it tonight and maybe get it done by next Friday.  If I do, I will share the finished album and then announce my next project to be finished.

I’m also having a bit of problems with my photo uploading on my blog.  I think it’s a WordPress plug-in issue.  When I deactivate all my plug-ins, I can upload a photo to my blog.  When I activate them all in groups of 6, I can still upload BUT after a bit I can no longer upload. Very frustrating!  So I’ll be working on that too. Otherwise, it’s been a great Friday.

Happy Crafting!

  1. cute cute album! Bummer you forgot about it and will have to match what you have but I bet you can pull it together! Say do you supposed there is anyway I might connect with you while you’re at the park?! I’d love to see you 🙂

      Sure! I’d love to see you too. We may be out there Thursday evening if we get to go early to set up camper while it’s cooler and have a cookout dinner with niece and her husband. But then I’ll be back home night to work at the office Friday and then go out again later in the afternoon to stay. Saturday we have our kid’s parade around the loop usually at 10 and then our family auction. Pot luck dinner Saturday night. Times are always decided when we are there. We will be in the Plateau camp loop and have all the sites booked except for the 3 they won’t let us book. LOL I’m not sure yet what camp # we will be at but you can drive through and ask for me. Surely someone will know and tell you. I don’t know about you but we can’t get phone service out there and that’s why I have to come back home on Thursday night to be able to answer the office phones as it does no good to forward them. And thanks for the compliment on the album. I got it done and it ended up being a family summer trip album. I hope someone will like it.

      • Phone service is dicey out there. I will have the girls Friday and at least part if not all of Saturday. I’ll see what I can do. I don’t want to interfere with your family activities but hate not to try to see you while you’re so close! I have a park pass so going out there isn’t a problem for me. I’ll try to touch base with you sometime Thurs to get a better feel when you’ll be there.

  2. Love how it turned out!! Beautiful!
