CD album

This mini scrapbook album is made out of old CDs.

Several of my friends enjoy scrapbooking as much as I do, so about two years ago, we started getting together once a month for a “scrap day,” in which we meet at my house and spend an entire afternoon – and sometimes part of the evening – scrapbooking whatever we want. It’s fun to compare techniques and projects while catching up on what’s going on with each other.

A few weeks ago, with scrap day approaching, I decided I wanted to do something different – something other than pages for the album I’m currently working on – so I started looking through idea books and found a project for making a mini scrapbook album using old CDs. It sounded fun, and it was a good way to recycle my old CDs (as well as a scratched DVD that didn’t play anymore).
