My first Chipboard Album.

This is my first ever board book. I know, I know, I'm way behind the times!! I've just been doing my 12x12 LOs and leaving it at that. But I finally decided I need to mix things up a bit. This is a chipboard book from Maya Road. I decided to use it to put our visit to Thomas the train for 2006 & 2007, but I just finished the album this summer. Austin now thinks he's too big for Thomas the Train. He's only 5-1/2!! They grow up so fast!

I love using ribbon and having it stick out but there wasn't really a way to do it so I used my Crop-o-dile Big Bite and punched holes on the edges of the pages in all different areas. Then tied the ribbon through the holes.

I used a zipper pull (the yellow RR) for an embellishment and just put it through one of the holes I punched then added the ribbon.

Austin got to go on stage and help with the magic show.

The train is some Felt Fusion from Queen & Co.

I really need one more page for all the pictures that I had so I put pictures on the inside of the front and back covers. Worked great.
