WOYWW #190 - TP core book

Last week I started to make a mini album of toilet paper roll cores. Now it´s almost finished. Only the texts are still missing. I had a really good time with this tiny album, and sure am making more of these! If you´re interested, look Vickie´s, and follow her links!
Also the cover is still unfinished:

My great grandparents

My grandfather as a sailor and my grandparents with their motorcycle

Their wedding pic  and my father as a little boy
My parents...

...their wedding pic and I as a child

My wedding pic and our girls when DD2 was born

DD1´s wedding and "one year later" pics. Olivia as a just born baby :)
 There are tags in every core to add text - and maybe I´m adding more pics to the pockets, too.

Happy Wednesday to everyone! You can find more workdesk pics from Julia´s Stamping Ground blog!
In fact this was not my work desk, but the living room carpet... sorry, Julia ;)
