6 x 6 Acryllic Back to School Album

My first attempt at an acryllic album. It is archaic and just a start for me. I love the look and the ease of completeing the album! I was crossing my fingers that my Bind It All would work...and sure enough it did.
This is a simple book as I just wanted something to tell the story of my children's first day of school. It was a joy to create!
I used the Basic Grey "Recess" line of paper. It worked well for this album. I love the tips to use double sided paper...but I didn't have what I wanted and I am all about using up my stash!!! The acryllic is Hambly. As always, please click on the picture to make them come alive full size!
