I made an 8 x 8 Album.  There are a TON of them to choose from!  I picked Decorative Window 8" x 8" Album Chipboard Set and I ordered extra pages in acetate and the covers in acetate as well.

We go to Oklahoma every year to see Bryan's family and every year Morgan finds a turtle!
Meet Victor, isn't he cute?  The ribbon on the rings is from my stash.  The font and the turtle are from the Cricut.  
Please excuse this weird angle LOL  It is next to impossible to get the acetate page to show!  Can you see it?  The little pocket on the bottom will be coming to out website soon! 
This is the other side of the acetate, see how the pattern paper shows through from the cover?  I LOVE that!  The wave and envelope with the journaling tag will also be available soon.  The bikini bottom is a dollar stamp from Studio G.
The acetate pages are a challenge for me because you have to plan both sides at the same time.  When it comes together I can hear the angels sing LOL  The Twine wrapped around worked out perfectly!  I love these pages!  You will be seeing a lot of them in the future!  The flowers are by Prima I stuck a 'skittle' in the middle.  The label and the tab are SU! punches. 
The bigger flowers are by DoodleBug I think!  The brads, button and bling are from my stash.  The Decorative Label was invented for me I'm pretty sure LOL  I LOVE it and could use it on every page and every card for the rest of my life and be perfectly happy!  I've been working on Terry the owner of CC&M to design more in custom sizes. *wink, wink*! 
The Tag #04 - Small fits perfectly in a darling pocket that will be available soon!  The butterflies are from a Martha punch I added Stickles to them.  The grapes are from a CookBookin' set.  The rhinestones are DoodleBug Jewels.  Another new die we have is the Ice Cream Cone.  I LOVE it!  The ice cream is separate so you can have as many scoops as you want.  I can't wait to make a 12 x 12 page with them all the way up the side!  So cute!  There is the Decorative Label again!
Here is the back side of the acetate page.  The girls marked Victor with some zebra print tape so he would not forget his name!  The turtle is a CuttleKids. 
This is Kim my girls LOVE their older sister!  Did I mention anything about LOVING the Decorative Label? LOL  The journaling block is an {ippity} stamp from A Moment In Time and the heart is from another {ippity} set called Straight From The Heart.
Now it is time to hop on over to one of my Besties Blog!  Be prepared to be blown away by the album Nora Anne made!  She makes amazing stuff!
Thanks so much for hopping with us today!  I hope you love all the albums as much as I do!  They are really fun to make!  Don't forget the full list of hoppers, there are 20 of us is on Die Cut Diva.  Follow the 3 rules  follow each blog, leave a comment and let us know you did and you can win the super cute Sea Life Mini Album Kit!  Good Luck!
