The Gift of Giving

Hello everyone! Welcome to another Make it Crafty blog hop, put on by my teamies and myself. If you've come from Asa's you're in the right place.
For my surprise gift I have made a 4x6 Kraft album for my friend Katie. February 26th is her birthday, so I figured I would make her a little journal for her to put her birthday pictures in. I used Melody because it looks like she's screaming "hooray"... but I didn't have a "hooray" stamp, so I used two of my new sets to make the "celebrate" sentiment.
I used washi tape to put this journal together, taking two 4x6 pieces of Kraft paper and taping them together. You kinda make a bit accordion of them and then when they're all together you put another piece of washi along the seam so that it looks finished.

Well, I hope you all like it and that Katie will enjoy it when she gets it!
