My Mom is writing her life story along with a little family history. I look forward to reading it even though I have heard some of these stories throughout my life. I wanted to make her something for Christmas that might help her with this project. I don't know how many chapters she will end up with, but this would be a start. I came up with a tray-organizer, and using the beautiful spring papers of Graphic 45's Sweet Sentiments, this is the result.
I used all but five sheets from the 12 x 12 paper pad, with some scraps enough to make a few cards as well. The project measures 12 3/8" w x 5 3/4" d x 9 1/4" h.
