These Are A Few of My Favorite Things - The Album....

I finished my Fave Things Album Cover - yeayyyy! It took me all weekend cuz I did it in stages, but it's finally finished and I'm so excited! I couldn't resist putting Julie Andrews on the front...
I used an American Crafts Modern Album (click here to see one unfinished.) The image of Julie is from a Sound of Music poster that was on the web. I printed it onto plain white cardstock and cut her out. The rest of the cover is done with acrylic paint and poster paint sharpies. The black and white striped trim is happy tape. Here's another view where you can see a little bit of the coordinating inside color...

The title on the spine is done with Sharpies. Hint - To make the color stand out against the black, I first wrote it with a white sharpie, then did a second coat with the blue.

Here's the back...

and the inside...

Now I have a home for all of my Fave Things layouts! Yeayyyy!!!

Here's wishing you an awesome Monday my friends! Thanks for visiting!
