Speaking of Dogs - Online Auction - Mini Album!

From MONDAY NOV. 8th, 9 am to SUNDAY NOV. 14th, 9 pm EST, Speaking of Dogs rescue in Toronto will be having an online auction.  (Read about it on their blog.)  At the last auction, I donated 5 handmade cards.  Check out all the items from the last auction to get an idea of the things available and the pricing.  Bids are very very reasonable!

This time, I have donated a mini scrapbook album for dogs.
The album measures 4 inches by 4 inches.  The covers are made of chipboard coasters.  The album is bound by two jump rings, so the owner can add his or her own pages if desired, but it does come with 20 pre-made pages.  Each page can hold a single wallet-sized photo.  Because the pages are held in by jump rings, the owner can also rearrange the pages however they wish!

I added the faux chipboard dog tag and an acrylic, glittered bone to the front of the album as charms.  The colour scheme of this dog-themed mini album is gender-neutral.  Most colours are earth-tones with a splash of red or green here and there.

Embellishments include bones, paw prints and a few titles.  Where embellishments overlap the picture area, they have been adhered in a way that the photo can slide beneath them!

I hope this album fetches a a decent donation for the rescue!  It took me months to finish it.  It sure was hard to come up with many different layouts.  Tune in to Speaking of Dogs Rescue on Monday, November 9th to see what other items will be up for grabs.  The last auction actually had quite an impressive list of goodies!
