MM Idol- Challenge 3

It's Monday, so that means it's time again for my MM Idol project! This week we were challenged to create a layout or project (basically anything we wanted) using only scrapbooking basics, like paper, photos, eyelets, stickers, ribbon, and buttons. We were given a short-ish list on stuff we could use. So, this is what I came up with this time: a paper photo album.

I ended up doing the cover a little different than I had originally planned, but the whole thing came together really well. The album is about 10" x 10 3/4". I think there's about 10 pages...I can't remember how many I put in it. I mainly focused on the outside, but showed the first page so you can see how it can be used. For dimension, I made my own 'pop dots' out of layers of cardstock. That was probably the most time consuming part of the whole thing. Every other little photo is bumped up slightly with about 4 layers of CS to create a bit of a tiled look. The frame is bumped up with 16 layers of CS under each corner. I actually really like this look as opposed to using foam dots for something like this, because if you see them, they match and look better. You can also see this at 2Peas HERE for a supply list.

Voting is up now, so if you'd like to vote, you can do that HERE. Good luck to all the other ladies!

Edit: I just realized I somehow disabled comments on this post. Oops, sorry!
