CD Tin-turned-Summer 2012 Memories Album

Hey there my crafty friends! I want to share a project I made with a CD tin! I bought like 8 of these things one day in the mall when a music store was going out of business--when I was a teenager, the music store was one of the coolest places to go to! lol I digress...I bought em thinking I would use them for something crafty....that was 8 years ago! So I dusted one off and decided to transform it into a fun Summer memory album with a vintage-like feel using these great designer papers from Graphic 45 "On The Boardwalk" collection and Unity Stamps and a whole bunch of embellishments from my stash, some new and some of which I haven't used in years. This turned out to be lots of fun for me and now I hope to add some summer photos and journaling to is as the warmer days of Summer come....
