1st accordion album

Last June 30, 2007, we had a baby shower for my sis odette and her husband Abe. We asked the guests to write down a brief intro and message for Baby Sam on small sheets of my (scrapbook) papers. After 1 million years, i finally found the time to compile the cards and make an accordion album (album bought at National bookstore at P16 pesos only!). Since I didnt have the luxury of time, I decided to put only a few embellishments, basically just photo corners. The outcome is good because the messages are already on patterned papers.. =)

Gave it to my sis a few hours ago, she loved it. :)
