Envelope Album

My daughter Amanda is in the 4th grade and is 9 years old. She is a Junior in Girl Scouts.
A little over 3 weeks and her first year as a Junior Girl Scout will be over. As the leader came over to pick up her SAF kits for their camping trip she asked me if I would help them out with the albums they will be working on at the last meeting. Of course I said I could, why not I have a Bug, Cuttlebug, Sizzix all kinds of supplies and I was going to awe her with my Scrap Cage but couldn't find the key to open the door.. :<(

I asked her what type of album she wanted to do, square, rectangle (like they did last year) circle or something different like an envelope album.. she wanted to know what one was so I explained it as best as I could and told her that I would make one up for her so she could see what one was..

Off I go at 1030pm in my scrap cage to find some inspiration to try and put together an envelope album. Then I became side tracked with things I have packed up for my SS (I need to send that box)....

I did finish the album but without any fore thought it is really not a cohesive album.. ughgh..
so that is somewhat accomplished... then I decided I would try my tote ally tote? (is that what it is called?) it has been sitting empty since I purchased it in December (I believe).. So I put together things I would need like scissors, scrap pad paper, paper punches, glue sticks, glue dots, ink pads 3 stamp sets and some embellishments... Then I have my larger tote I will use for other things and probably a crate on wheels for the heavier things like cuttlebug and the sizzix..

My accomplishment today... a half complete envelope album and packed for the class that is at least 2 weeks away...HA!
