Say Cheese Mini Album Cover

Hello, Friends! It's my turn on the Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts Blog today. I am sharing an amusement park themed brag book as my project. I found a 5 3/4" x 8 1/4" binder in my stash. It is a little ring binder, perfect for making a brag book or autograph book commemorating a trip to see "the mouse."
I have tons of Disney photos, both from Disney World and from Disneyland. (We live less than an hour from Disneyland, so we have photos, oh yes we do!) I have several Disney albums in various stages of completeness, but, what is one more?!

I thought it would be fun to decorate the cover of this little album with some fun chipboard and Disney-themed items. I added all sorts of goodies to the front of this little book. It makes me happy just to look at it!

To decorate the cover, you need the following Gypsy Soul Laser Cut items:
I really like the photo frames. This one has cut-out words at the bottom! You could place a photo into this instead of the "sign" that I used.
The  Say Cheese Shape Set has tons of cool stuff to add to the project. I only used a few items from the pack, which means I can make a lot more projects with what is left over! I used the camera shape and added a graphic behind the camera opening.
I just adore the cut out panels! I added a decorative paper clip to the edge of the "snap shot" panel. I also added a decorative brad to the photo reel. It looks very cool with black paper behind, and the fancy brad in the center!
I attached decorated paper to the inside covers, too. I found some photo reel paper in my stash! How cool is that?!
 The back is plain, with just a piece of the film strip chipboard attached.
