Deployment / Patriotic Mini Album

Hi Everyone
I made these recently for the lady who won my giveaway on the Whipperberry blog.  She actually won a custom made cardset and when she said her son was joining the marines later in the year, I offered to make her a frame and album in a patriotic theme.  
Fold Out Photo Albums 
I had seen this “Liberty” Bo Bunny Collection online and knew it would be perfect for this project. I could only get a few of the bits and pieces but I am really pleased with how these turned out..

I made a little fold out album and left the pages blank as Jodi wanted to add pictures when she received it. 

I thought it be fun to package the albums in these tins as it would protect them and any other little bits and pieces if they wanted to take them on their travels. (Read on to see why I made two!)
I added my own little personal note on the back – it is just a simple Thank-You.
Photo Frame
This is a Dusty Attic frame and they are so easy to put together. Just grab some scraps of paper, a few embellishments and away you go!
Jodi emailed me this great picture for the frame – it is her son and nephew and they are starting their training together, so of course I made him an album to take too – it was an honor 🙂

These projects were so much fun to make, and I always enjoy making pieces for people who are appreciative. 
Lowri 🙂

I enjoy linking my projects to these sites here.

    Those are so beautiful! And perfect for Patriots Day. I am over from Tatertots and Jello, and I will have to take a look around at the other amazing things you have done with paper. Have a great weekend.

    Lowri!!! It came today and I LOVE it! The pictures you took are awesome, but to hold them in my hand was something else entirely! My son (the blond in the picture thought the pocket albumn was great and really liked the tin as well. He chose the one in the airman tin. Cody will be over later to get his, I have not told him about it yet. I will take a picture for you of them holding the gift. I will always treasure the framed piece. Thank you so much!

    Hi Jodi – WOW that was fast mail from New Zealand to the US!! I am really thrilled you like them – it's such a pleasure to make something meaningful for someone as appreciative as yourself.

    Best of luck to the boys as they start this exciting phase of their lives – and please say a big THANK-YOU to them from me 🙂
