Altered 12x12 Scrapbook Album

 This is just a plain old album I purchased from Hobby Lobby, at half price for $5.00....Being one to never leave things just as I buy them, I had to snazzy it up. The papers are from MME, which I totally love, and then just tore them to fit the album front.
 I used multiple stamps and just stamped in black about 2-3" iff the book binding. I also added family rub-ons they are the ones in the bold just to pop out a bit. I took my embossing pen and after rolling the paper adges used the pen and added gold embossing powder.
I took wire from my jewelry jig and kinked it up a bit adding beads to match as I went along the binding. The inchies were made with coordinating paper and the word Family was stamped onto each inchie.
 I used the sizzix leaf border die with the same coordinated paper glued to chipboard and cut with my Big shot. making the corner flourish, and just adding a few Prima flowers here and there
 added a ribbon and MM ribbin holder to add charms, and a book plate in the corner to personalize with the family name..It was quite the change from a plain black album, but a lot nicer to look at, and give as
