Wow! Project - Envelope Memory Book

I finally found the time to do alittle creating, of course, it really helped that it was gloomy and
rainy outside all day today. It it would have been sunshine and nice, well then I would have felt so guilty staying indoors all day.
What I created is a Memory Book, and they are made using 4 envelopes. You seal the envelopes from flap to base, leaving a bit of room from the crease to the next envelope.
Stamped the outside and inside and for mine, I used Stampin' Up!

Happy Everything and Polka Dot Punches stamp sets. The cardstock is Bashful Blue, So Saffron and Mellow Moss. The designer paper is the coordinating Delicate Dots that go with the Polka Dot Punches. Its really the first time that I've had a chance to play with my new stamp sets that got during Sale-a-Bration.
The memory book opens and then keeps opening and you end up with a book that you can put 6 pictures in. After decorating the pages and putting some captions on them, you have this adorable
keepsake to share.
My husband's aunt is having a birthday party/family reunion and what do you get a person that probably has everything and only wants everyone to come and spend the day. I thought why not a memory album that she can look at after we've went home. The pictures are of me and my husband and our son; from fishing, hunting and our annual bow party.
Let me know what you think, if you need more detailed instructions I would be happy to share.
Thanks for stopping in.
