Grad Album #1 and FTL 91

It's so nice to be back in the craft room , even if it is total chaos and I can't remember what I have much less where everything is! And I'm still looking for my Muse to return...but I did get started on Grad Album #1 for Alyssa.  This album will be a 6x6 (covers are 7" x 6.5") and will be used for people to leave comments, advice or memories with Alyssa.
I'm mostly inspired by Tim Holtz...I just really love the look of his work. The bird cage is a Tim Holtz die and the bird is from a SU punch. (the bird cage has a bird with it but I liked the SU one better)

I used the Clean And Simple FTL 91 Sketch for the first divider page. (I hope to make 4 or 5 divider pages but still need to put together her 12 x 12 album although I have a lot of layouts already completed for that.)  

Thanks for stopping by. I hope to spend most of this week in the craftroom.  I have a Close To My Heart order arriving tomorrow and I can't wait to dig into the goodies : - )
Marie with a :-)

This is LOVELY!!!! I love how you used the card layout for your album page. And I love your style -- I love the vintage/grunge/collage look, but have not been able to master it . . . I'm never happy with what I create. I'll be following your blog for sure!!!

I'm LOVIN' this card, and this bird/cage has got to be my favorite of the latest dies too - TFS! I got to see Tim at work at this month's Mega Meet in Novi MI up close and personal; the man is SO talented!
