Men at Work by Wendy Kats

This project has been calling my name for a while now but I had to finish my Halloween projects first ;)
There are a few people in my life who are very important and the hubby and my son are two of those people. I wanted to make something just for them that shows not only how much them mean to me but also how much they mean to each other.
So I started looking for something that would fit that idea. I found the Beyond the page toolbox while I was ordering some basic supplies at Scrapadabadoo and it was just perfect!
Hmmm I have to be honest and say that I am proud how it turned out and the boys just love it...I hope you all will like it as well...

I just love the whole father and son idea behind this. They both have their own side but they are still one piece, working and playing as one and the Good ol' sport paper from Graphic 45 is the finishing touch.

The boys both have their own album but with a little twist I will show later on. Don't ask me how but somewhere along the line my brain had the weird idea to use some shoelaces for the binding of the album instead of the's a bit twisted but I actually think it's kind of cute haha.

The base for both albums are the same as I used the long 5 ring chipboard album. The little twist is the pockets on the inside. Dad has the full page pockets and the son has 2 small pockets per page. Hmmmm I guess you can call them Senior and Junior  Hehe. The chipboard pieces from the collection give that little bit of extra.

In the Senior album I used the  Tim Holtz on the edge gear die to create extra pockets. Because this is an album for the guys I decided to go for twine on the tags and skip the ribbon ;)

I am seriously thinking about making this project again for two other very important men in my life. My dad and granddad deserve one as well. I better start looking for a good paper...they both loved fishing....

This project has a small tutorial I will post the link for it at the end and of course you can always buzz me on Facebook or pop me a mail trough my blog if you have any questions.

Well I better get back to work as Thanksgiving and Christmas are closing in on us..ohh and before I forget here is the link to the tutorial.

For now I say stay safe...scrap on and till next time.
