Rachel's Album - Just Rite Challenge JRC 001

Hi all, Wow that was such a fun Blog Hop!!! You still have until January 22 to hop and find all the code words to enter for a chance to win some great Fred She Says digi images! See the Blog Hop Post below and hop along! Thanks for ALL your sweet and very encouraging comments on the new FSS designs, I have read and appreciate all of them!
Today's project took me a little longer than I thought it would, the reason this post is a day or so later than I wanted it. But, here it is, an album made for the Just Rite Stamps Challenge JRC 001. With this challenge you get a chance to win a $50.00 gift certificate to the Just Rite Store!!!! I have only a few Just Rite sets and I REALLY want the new ones!!!! So I hope I win!  EDITED TO ADD:  I'm doing the happy dance, I WON!!!!  Thanks, Just Rite Stamps!!!!  Now to decide what new stamps I will get?????
You have to use one of their font sets in a project and this album came to mind. I had to make some adjustments here and there in my original design, and it also came out larger than my minds eye pictured it, 8 1/2" x 16". But it has plenty of room for pictures or keepsakes. I didn't have any 16" paper for the pages of the album so I just staggered the 8 1/2" down and it worked perfectly.

Each page has a lettered medallion with adjectives that start with that particular letter, describing my daughter. You can see the close ups of each letter below. The front is decorated with scalloped Nestie flowers and a vine ribbon.

It was fun making it but as I said, it took a little longer than I had thought it would, partly because I kept adding "details" and layers to give it a vintanegy feel! I hope my daughter likes it. Two down, one to go on the daughter's projects! Now to clean up the paper scraps and put everything back to order on my craft table!!!
Shalom ,
Comments are always appreciated and read! Link your projects in your comments or share on Paper Craft Planet!
