A "Favorite" Mini Album

Today I have a mini album made with Authentique's 'Favorite' collection.  Favorite indeed!  The combination of blues & yellows are right up my alley.  I have a few CD tins in my stash that I've had for many years now.  I used to make mini albums with these CD tins & haven't made one in a long time--well, I decided it was time to make one!  These tins offer a sturdy cover that keep whatever keepsakes and/or pictures you decide to store inside it safe.  
 The pages of the mini are 'accordion style' pages.  The front & back pages are adhered to the inside front & back covers of the CD tin.  So when you open the album you can either flip the pages or stretch the album out to see all the contents at once.
 I've used a few of the sticker elements from the 'Favorite' collection as holders for either photos, tags or journaling cards as shown here.  You can just tuck the cards into these holders.  I've included several of the pocket journaling cards within this album.   These cards are excellent for jotting down thoughts, dates & some can even be used to store small photos.
 Here's another journaling card.  It's held closed with a sticker and flips open revealing the full mat behind it & one can also write journaling onto the card if desired.
 Two life cards tucked behind yet another sticker element.  As you can see all the pages are matted and can be used to store several photos.
I hope this inspires some of you to utilize those old school CD tins for mini albums!  Thanks for stopping by & enjoy the rest of the week.
