Beach ball album

This summer Patrick got to spend some time with his dad. He flew down and they spent a weekend at the beach before going to Colorado. So I thought it would be fun for Patrick to have a little album of their fun time together. I was hoping to have the photos already but they haven't arrived yet.

For this album I used five 5 inch circles from kits2remember, paint, white stazon ink, Making Memories papers and ribbon.

I drew the picture I wanted on the outside film and then painted the colors I wanted. After all the paint was dry I painted in the black lines on both sides of the acrylic. I kept the paint on the inside of the cover. I added some rubon's and I was done.
The inside pages are all the same. I cut five 4.5 inch circles and three 4.25 inch circles. This way I can add 4 inch circle photos. I altered the paper circles on either side of the acrylic. This way some of the photos will have a double mat. I added ribbon tags on the 3 inside pages and the o-ring.
Now all I will need to do is add the photos and a few extra embellies if I decide to.
I doodled stitching on each page and added white stazon to the edges of the acrylic.

Now Patrick will have a fun little album of him and his dad. I love playing around with the circles. They make for quick albums and they look great without very many embellies.

I am using this for a few challenges...I hope it works even without

Happy crafting everyone. I will see you next time with another fun album!
