Coffee Filter Album

I love to make mini albums and have made quite a few featuring my grandson on our adventures together, I look for all sorts of things to make them from. 
A little while ago I made an album especially for recording memories of our gorgeous Golden Retriever Meg who we sadly lost in April 2010  I didn't manage to complete it the time wasn't right  but I was inspired to get it out again and add some photo's and journaling after seeing the GC86 Coffee Filters Challenge over at Gingersnap Creations. 

I have debated all week if I would post these pages but then came to the conclusion that as the Gingersnap Challenge had inspired me to work again on this memory book then I could share this special  book with you all.

I have left the pockets made by the filters to hold tags made by cutting out from card using the filter as a template where I will add more journaling and photos. Filters have been covered both sides with paper and ink has been used to distress edges I hope to give it the look of coffee stains on the pages.
















below are some pages I selected which  show her nature







These pages are showing some of her favourite things to do, she loved being out and about with us and away in our Motorhome she loved everything and everybody such was her kind and loving nature.



Thank you for looking and indulging my memories, this was not an easy book to make and I have shed quite a few tears this week, but I know in time we will look at this and get great pleasure from the

  5. Just had to pop in and tell you how much I love your album. What a beautiful girl...I lost my girl about a year ago and it has been hard to make the album I've wanted to do for her but you've inspired me. Thanks so much for sharing... Smiles...Nan
