Grandma's Virtual Visit

Our family was disappointed to find out that Grandma wasn't going to be making a long-awaited trip to visit. So we decided to send a "visit" to her!

We packed her a suitcase full of photos taken during our daily activities and are sending it to her in the mail.

I thought I'd share with you some photos of the suitcase mini album and a couple of the layouts we included. The album is mainly designed with Photoshop Elements 6 (using various scrap elements from Designer Digitals and plus some that I created myself). I used craft foam to fashion the outside of the suitcase and used ribbon and large brads to put the album together. If you have a specific question about supplies, leave me a comment and I can give you more info.

Here's to hoping the album will inspire Grandma to come visit anyway!!!

Angela, This is AWESOME!! What a creative and generous gift. A wonderful replacement since she couldn't make it.
