Daring Adventure Matchbook Album

In keeping with my current theme...sharing old stuff, I thought I would share this matchbook album I made for my mom and mother- in- laws for Christmas.  I used the Daring Adventure Stamp Set and Well worn DSP throughout the album.  The matchbook albums are super easy to put together and it didn't take me long to make four of them (I had to have one too).  I believe they have four pages in them.  They were a little thick, but I probably used way to many embellishments on the inside.  lol  I have to have lots of embellishments. 

Here lately I keep seeing pictures all over the place that have a vintage look and I love it.  I decided I needed a few to scrapbook.   So I edited some recent pictures (courtesy of my wonderful sister- in- law Kelli) in Picasa.  I love how they turned out.  They look like some of my childhood pictures.  The best part is Picasa is very user friendly.  You simply upload your pictures to Picasa and click on Edit in Creative Kit.  From there you just go into Effects and I chose the Polaroid Plus Effect.  That's it!  I'm sure there are lots of other programs out there that do the same thing, but Picasa is just so easy to use.  So far I'm happy with the results.  However, I didn't have a chance today to pick the pictures up so I hope they are just as good in real life.  Cute huh?

Have a terrific Tuesday!
