Pause/Dream/Enjoy-Toilet Paper Roll Mini Album Challenge

My dear, sweet, wonderful and awesome friend Janis (did I say all the right things Janis?) over at Pause Dream Enjoy is having a Toilet Paper Roll Mini Album challenge. You will need 4 empty cardboard rolls from the same package so they will be the same size. Flatten them. I used my Cuttlebug. Flatten between a B and C plate. Then cut paper to cover the rolls. Punched 2 holes in one end for the rings and covered some tags to go inside. Really really easy. And this is my first time making one!!! LOL I had fun! Our youngest Grand is going to pre-school this year. He didn't want to at first but went and met his teacher (the same one his brother and 2 sisters had), looked around and is now excited about going!! I decided to make my mini album for him. DD can use it to put pictures of his first days and journal his thoughts about 'school'. All of the cardstocks and embellies I used are from DCWV-Safari Kids collection. The twine is from Papertrey Ink. The tags are Paper Reflections that I got at Hobby Lobby for 1/2 off. I cut them down to fit inside and then covered them to match the album. I didn't add any ribbon, etc to the rings since it is for a little guy and I sure didn't want it to look even a little bit girly. He is 'all' boy!!! LOL This challenge is going through noon, EST on Saturday July 23rd. I think you have enough time if ya want to join in on the fun. Hope ya'll like my first Toilet Paper Roll Mini Album!!! :)
Oh, and this post is picture heavy!!

OMGOSH! I totally LOVE how this turned out! It's sooo Cute Sharon!
I don't have any toilet paper rolls... well unless you count the ones with the toilet paper on it! LOL I've never thought about saving them.... but I guess I may have to re-think that thought! Although my hubby might think I'm a little nuts for doing that! LOL
