Picnic Accordian Album

I made this little Picnic Accordian Album for a silent auction at our church to raise funds for our Youth Mission Trip we take each year. I was fortunate enough to go on the trip this summer as an adult leader. It was wonderful! We spent time at the Crow Indian Reservation in Montana - a week of working in the town of Lodge Grass and running a Kids Club for the beautiful children there. I got to watch our high school youth bloom in the love of Christ - it was a great experience for all of us.

This album is made with a 6x6 accordian album available from Close To My Heart. I used a retired scrapbooking kit and new rub ons. Also added ribbons, and buttons. Some of the die cut elements are popped up on foam squares.

Colors are Holiday Red, Star Spangled Blue, Clover Meadow. I hope that the person who bought it at the auction has a fun time adding their own photos and memories to this album!

(All supplies are Close To My Heart, except ribbon.)

PS. If you want to see close ups of the pages, let me know in a comment and I'll post those, too!

What a great idea this little accordian album is! It's so absolutely adorable! Somebody is going to snatch this right up! Regarding your previous post about finding time to blog--I sure know what you mean. But we all have to go at our own pace and do what feels right and comfortable. It's most important to have fun!
