"US"

This  album was a gift for a friend who watched our dog for us for a few days. I made it out of coffee cups & a sleeve. Her fave color is green like me, that's why SO much green! :)
I'm linking up to these parties...

Hi Chrystie,

Thanks so much for following my blog. You made my day... really, did!

You have a wonderful blog and the first thing I did was to return your kind deed by following you.

I love, love this brilliant album made with a coffee cup. Now how clever is that... Genius hiding in there... The vintage apppearance looks great.

Monica, thanks for following me back! :)

Thanks for the compliments! I did not come up with this coffee cup album idea, but I did copy it many many a time! :) They're fun & simple! I use the sleeve for the template unless I want it bigger, then I just cut off the bottom & top of the cup & make it as big as possible & follow the 1st cup for the other ones. I just flatten it & stick it together in the middle. Add paper & embelies & whala!

Absolutely incredible in every detail! Wow! I love the way you upcycled the coffee sleves, and embellished with all those wonderful bits of ephemera! Your newest follower, Jenn
