Graphic 45 A Proper Gentleman Mini Album

I can't believe it's taken me this long to make this post!!!  This is a video of a mini album that I made for my mom.  It is a memory album of her late husband.  He past away on July 5th, 2011 after a battle with Pancreatic Cancer.  I wanted to make my mom an album to hold all of her favorite pictures of him and this is what I can up with.

I used Kraft cardstock for the base pages and the base of the photo mats.  Then I used Graphic 45's A Proper Gentleman paper collection to decorate it and a tan colored cardstock for the photomats.  

The tabs for the photomats were made using the Stampin' Up! Large Round Tab punch, which I just recently got and I'm in love with it!!!

Corrections:  Cover is made of chipboard wrapped with cardstock not made of just  cardstock.  Tim Holtz Frayed Burlap distress ink was used to ink the edges of the photomats.

I would also like to thank Patricia Murray at Fox and Murray Funeral Home for sending me the pictures from his memorial service.  My mom had given them her favorite pics of Ronnie so I was able to get them without her knowing.  Thanks Patricia!!!

I would also like to thank Ruby Douglas, Ronnie's daughter, for always taking so many pictures.  I was able to download a lot of good pictures of Ronnie from her Facebook page to use in the album.  Thanks Ruby!!!!!
