The Craft Barn: Weekly Challenge

This year the
Craft Barn team is hosting weekly challenges as well and the first one is to create a Mini Album.
I decided to make a Travel Album and it will be a birthday present for a friend of mine. For the covers I've used corrugated cardboard glued to strong cardboard. I've decorated the covers front and back with travel images using Papermania stamps (coloured with Distress Inks) and postage stamps. 

I've used Spellbinders papers for the insides of the covers and added some Crafty Individuals images and Washi Tape. The pages for the album are plastic pocket wallets and different note papers from Papermania. This was good fun.
Thanks for looking :)
