8 on the eighth

A group of us girls over on DML started a fun scrapbook project yesterday that I hope, no...I plan to continue for the rest of the year.
This is such a fun concept to me, that it may be one of my most favorite projects ever.
It started with this post
We decided that 12 on the 12th was too many pictures for us, especially those of us using a smaller mini album.
So we picked 8 on the 8th, and I picked an 8X8 chipboard album I had in my stash from 7 gypsies
Last night I painted it and picked my colors which I'll carry through the album - green, orange and black. This American Crafts paper thats been in my bin for-ever was just begging to be used :)
After that, a quick coat of mod-podge and it was done.

The inside cover. So glad to find a place for this KI die cut number paper I've been hording.

Thats the start...
and that for me, is the hardest part. Now to get the inside pages done.
I plan to have a simple double page for each month and I want to get those done while Im on a roll so all I have to do is add 8 - 2" pictures each month and Im done.
