Pull-Out Scrapbook

This project was a much of a challenge to photograph as it was to make. We all talk about how challenged we are to come up with projects for men, so when I finished this and took a good look at it I think it will work very well for any guy of any age.
The Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge and Cards For Men are challenging us to create for "New" and New Beginnings so I've chosen to interpret this project as a new beginning birthday, since I turned 60 recently I think sometimes we can treat birthdays like the new year, make new resolutions and start fresh to make our next year even better than the last one. The rest of the challenges will be self explanatory when you read the list.
5 Challenges:
Supplies: Instructions on, Papers: My Mind's Eye Designer Paper, Best Occasions Textured Cardstock-Wal-Mart, Stampin Up-Baja Breeze, gold and chocolate unknown, Stamps: Stampin Up-Birthday Bliss, CTMH-D1201 Frame of Mind, Heartfelt Creations-GRS210, Ink: Stampin Up-Soft Suede, Baja Breeze, Studio G-ribbon, Offray-ribbon, Fiskars Cutting Template-Circles-1, Penny Black Stickeroos, pop dots.

Thanks for viewing,
Beverly G

Another super project; I love the emphasis you so often have towards men and boys for those of us who aren't always into "frills". Thanks for the great photos--they make the project seem so easy ;-)
