Pink Mini Albums for a Cure

Laura Denison from The Paper Trail has organized her second annual Pink Mini Album Auction to benefit the Susan G. Komen foundation. I've decided that I needed to get my butt into gear and help. The bonus is that I get to create as well.

My mini album is neither pink nor actually a complete creation of mine. A couple of weeks ago, I just got back from a boy scout trip to New Mexico and had no brain cells left for any kind of originality. I sent a quick email to Laura asking if I could create one of her patterns for the auction and she replied, no problem. So, I set to work on the album below.

Okay, no, that does not look like an album. It's not, it is a small replica of a suitcase that I created from one of Laura's patterns, Vintage Suitcase, to hold the actual album (Although, Laura's pattern does show how to make the suitcase into an album). I made the album inside seperate from the actual suitcase. Here are some more photos:

The inside pocket of the suitcase isn't quite what I envisioned, but I'm thinking the person who wins it can change it to their liking. If they wish. If you are interested in bidding on this album, or seeing what else is available, visit Pink Mini's 2011 blog this next week. Please look over the mini albums, I know a lot of work went into all of them, and make a bid. If you don't win, think of contributing something to the Susan G. Komen foundation. It is a worthwhile cause.
