"SHOES"
A mini-album
~
I've noticed that I have a lot of photos of shoes in
my computer Picture Folders.
So...
A small and quick mini album was born.
It was lots of fun to create as it was out-of-the-norm
and small ( 6x6inches).
~
It's not completed, and not in it's final order...
but contains enough pages to share.
Click on the pictures for detail or to read
the narrative.
~
The front & back cover are made out of acrylic.

So... when you open the cover you have to make certain
that the inside of the cover works for you as
it is transparent.
Surprise, Junie Moon!!
Your bare feet made my album.





It was fun not worrying about each page being the same sixe.
There are a variety of page sizes and shapes in this album.
Such fun to experiment!

Kristin's socks were my original Blog Header almost
a year ago.

The pink flower has beads sewn to the center.

Kristin's green heels didn't photograph as well as I'd
have liked. But it was 1:30 in the morning
and I was in terrible light.

Wendy was lying on the floor with her feet in the air
when I got this shot of her new clogs.
They're hand painted and memorable.
My favorite 2 pages.
The girls' baby shoes.
Kristin's white shoes on the right have indents in the soft leather
of each precious little toe.

That's all for now!
But there is still a stack of pictures to work on another day.
~
I have another project in the making.
I'll share it with you when completed.
It is Marie Claire inspired.

Make it a great weekend!!

Oh my gosh, your album is awesome! And I'm laughing so hard about seeing my feet stick out of one corner that I'm going to have to make a mad dash to the bathroom as the giggles still have a hold on me. What an absolute hoot!
