ABC Primer

ABC primer papers from Graphic 45are perfect for recording a childs progress through school.............or as I have used it to show the final stages of my daughter's education when she graduated as a Doctor of Philosophy
I used a cheap ring binder cut down to 8x9 and covered it with 12x12 papers adding various trinkets to the spine and an image from the papers printed twill tape scrabble lettersand mini pull handle on the cover
The inside pages are 7x8" and have various pockets and pull-outs for photos and journalling

this page shows a fold out section which includes pockets for tabs and keepsakes
the final page has an expandable pocket to hold a mini pamphlet book which holds more photos ( the proud mum takes many photos)  I used an image from a 12x12 sheet for the cover of the mini book
the ABC Primer pages can be bought from Calico Crafts here

Congratulations to your daughter!

I think your album will be a lovely keepsake. I wish this sort of thing had been around when it was my turn, donkey's years ago. All I've got from my graduation is a posed photo that my Dad did, with me looking very silly in my gown and mortar-board!

Oh Pat that's beautiful work - your daughter must be so pleased with this wonderful keepsake (even if she's a bit too cool to say so)!
