Remembering Back

Happy Sunday once again! It was just a BEAUTIFUL day.
I spent the entire afternoon photographing all the historic buildings in my town. I plan to make a "Journey Through Time" journal book that one day my daughter can have and appreciate. I grew up going to a lot of these places that are no longer thriving. Nothing left but the building and I fear one day they will all be torn down one by one. I even drove out to the countryside to photograph my old home place (which is abandoned now). I had so much fun thinking back and revisiting old memories.
Where I live we have the Historic Rt. 66 that runs East and West along Interstate 44, and through town our Elm Street is Rt. 66, so I wanted to share a couple of these historic pics with you all.
The photo  to the right is the historic Munger Moss Motel (which is still open) and the photo  at the bottom is a sign that used to belong to an old cafe that sat beside a gas station that was called something like The Red Rocket. The old rocket is still there and located just a few feet from this cafe sign, except it has been painted white.

Sweet Paris Instax Mini Album

Happy Sunday!
I wanted to do a quick share on the little album I made for those tiny Instax photos. I did use the "Sweet Paris" collection by Dove Craft. Also the small paper bags are from JilliBean and can be purchased from Walmart. This little mini holds 30 pictures, but could hold 40 if I were to attach one to the backside of the tag.

 This is a tiny book for tiny photos.
 I tied seam binding around each page.
This could be my favorite little book.
 I love the Instax photos.
 This is my crazy daughter.
 Here is one of the pull out tags.

I have been trying to finish up some projects that I had started in the past and have been sitting around undone for some time. Here is a paper bag album that I started around 2 years ago using leftover scraps from the "An ABC Primer" collection.
