My dad made a scrapbook! ha ha
So my dad is awesome, right? I bought this license plate from a COOL scrapper lady (hi abby!) with out of the box ideas (she altered a highchair!) who started a yahoo group called Awesome Offerings by Abby. (go to http://groups.yahoo.com/group/AwesomeOfferingsByAbby/ ) where she sells neat and unique stuff for your scrapbooks from thrift stores, antique stores, vintage stuff, things you don’t find just anywhere. When I saw these license plates she was selling, I knew I wanted a Florida one to make a mini vacation album from 1 of our trips to Florida. I didn’t exactly know HOW I was going to make the mini album, but my motto is “My dad can do anything!” And it’s true.
So I gave him the cut up pieces of this plate and said, “Can you make me a scrapbook out of this?” And here ya go. He bolted these pieces to metal (this sucker’s heavy) that he cut to the right size and hooked a 3-ring binder thingie in the middle for the pages. If that wasn’t enough, he then used a burnishing brush tool to put all those cool swirls on it.
Of course, I’ve done nothing with it since then and I’m feeling kinda guilty about that after all his hard work. Maybe telling the internet about it will give me the motivation I need to get going this weekend and make that vacation album!
