Family is what it's all about!

The finished product--Family Mini-Album is here. I'm so very happy with the way it turned out. I think this is the fifth of 6th one I've done, but the beautiful thing is that everyone is different! This is for a family friend - my mom and I 'traded' crafty work. She made me 12 neat tree-like Thanksgiving napkins (I'll have to take a photo of those tonight instead of trying to explain them) and in return I did this album for a close family friend who has a brithday later this month. So, what do you think? I know the soccer doesn't really 'go' with the theme of the album very well, but this lady has 3 grandsons and 1 granddaughter and I just couldn't bring myself to leave a place with flowers to put the boys photos. :)
