Ripping, inking and rolling......

G'day everyone.  Today I'm sharing the present that I made for my sister in-law's 40th birthday.  So, a big thanks to Cindy, for allowing me to share her photos.  Cindy loves to scrapbook all her children's photos, so, I thought we would give her an album for herself.  The purpose of the album is for her to scrap the photos from her party.  I also included, a collection of photos of her life.  Sort of a ''This is Your Life'' style idea.  Confused yet?  Keep looking, I think it will become clearer. 
I have taken alot of photos to try and show how the layout works.  I have done two post to be able to share them all with you, so just scroll down to the next post to see them all.     
This the first page.  I was trying to make this look like an old fashioned bodice.  I ripped then rolled the centre of the pages then layered them.  Added the eyelets and ribbon.  Then I inked all the edges with a brown and caramel ink. 
I carried the bodice idea through to the next two pages.
This is a close up of the first page.  More ripping, inking and rolling.
Close up of the second page.  Ripping, inking, rolling......
Scroll down for the other photos.
