Going Hybrid

I spent all day Saturday at a crop with my pals Melissa and Patti. And I didn't just bring the laptop! I brought along some of the crafty supplies I've been hoarding and got to work on my hybrid album!

One of the most complicated things for me was getting these pages printed. I don't like my printer at all. So I tried having Staples print the pages for me, but they screwed up my order, lost some of the files, printed some pages at the wrong size (as you'll see in some of the back pages) and screwed up the colors. So I finally gave up and just printed on my own.

But once I got all the pages together, I had fun putting this all together.




I didn't know what to do with these backgroungs so I bought some vellum quotes and cut them up to decorate along with some rubons. I think they look a little lame, but it worked.






Patti gave me the little dog element!





So, what do you think? Mom liked it, so that's good, considering it was more than a month late!
Here are my credits:
Forever and Always kits and butterfly templates by Dani Mogstad, Lauren Grier and Shawna Clingerman; Maya Road chipboard album; little flowers by Prima; 3 kinds of glue; Versa chalk ink; vellum quotes by Die Cuts With a View; rub ons and brads by Making Memories. And I also got to play with my awesome new Basic Grey files and Fiskar blade. Sweet.
