Strawberry and Chocolate Mint - Vertical Toilet Paper Mini Album

Hello,  Cardies,

I have a lot of exciting news this week, but first, let's take a look at my DT project for The Outlawz Monday Greetings Challenge.  The challenge theme this week is "The Eyes Have it" and to play along, you have to use eyelets or an image in whic eyes are the FOCAL POINT.  This is a great chance to use some of those Saturated Canary and Some Odd Girl Stamps.  I have eylets throughout my mini, but unfortunately, it was difficult to photograph them.
This adorable image is from QKR Stamps, our December Sponsor.  I finally figured out a way to add  "Z" to my hugs, but it happened after the photos were taken.  Adding the "Z" lends even more visual interest.
I love using Laura Denison's "Stack The Deck" binding system.  I ran my toilet paper rolls through the Big Shot a couple of times to get them really flat before I Added my Design paper.  I used a single design paper and wrapped my Chipboard cover, but you can cover each section individually.
Just a look at some pages!
And more!
I couldn't figure out how to photograph the vertical pages.  The album kept closing.  Since my color theme was strawberry and chocolate mint, I used those colors for all my tags and embellishments.   The color on the image is really more green than blue, just not in these pictures.

I am still working on this mini and will make a video once it has been completed!
