I just finished my first accordion book layout. The accordion book was a gift from one of my former students. She had decorated the book with a cat stamp on the cover. I've been holding on to this book a couple of years, waiting for the right time to use it. Rosie, my husband's cat of 17 years passed away last year (she'd been with him a lot longer than I have). It hit him pretty hard. When I recently ran across photos of her, I remembered the accordion book and, well, the rest is history!
I purchased a little package of cat embellishments (stickers and ribbon) by Miss Elizabeth's Scrapbook Accessories at the Dollar Tree , used some coordinating scrap paper and finished it off with a little silver crown sticker atop Rosie's head. I think the book turned out cute, and my husband loves his little memory book.
