As I mentioned last month, I want to spotlight some outer-space-related projects on my blog. Since I'm still in a Russian mood after my last post, I thought that today I'd show you the Sputnik album that you see pictured above. "Sputnik" is one of my son's nicknames, and I created this album to celebrate some sweet moments from his toddler years. I made the album with an October Afternoon chipboard mini album kit, but I added my own personal touches, including painting, computer-printed journaling, vintage Soviet and American space-related postage stamps, and other fun embellishments. There are only six pages in this mini (including the front and back covers), so I'll walk you through the whole album in this post.
|Here is the second page. The caption reads: "constant companion."|
|The caption on this page reads: "li'l sidekick."|
|Here, the caption reads: "fellow traveller through life."|
|The back cover of the album bears the message: "We love you, little Sputnik. Love, Daddy and Mommy."|
I thought I'd close with this photo of the fun little the embellishment cluster from the front of the album. Hope you've enjoyed this journey through my spaceship album!
