memorial album #2

Memorial album #2 is finished-
This format is 8x8 inches and also has 12 pages- well actually a bit more because I added extra flaps and flip out bits!
Not so flowery this one as its more of a masculine album.
Embossed photo matts are large to fit most size photos- they will look lovely peeking behind precious photo’s
There are a couple of folder pockets for memorabilia as well as the open ends of the bags for cards certificates etc. I have added an extra8 acid free note cards with ruled lines for journaling.
On the inside first page I have added an acrylic flap- which a special photo will look so lovely beneath it!
It reads

“The majority of us lead quiet, unhearalded lives as we pass through the world.
There will be no ticker-tape parade for us, no monuments created in our honour.
But that does not lessen our possible impact; for there are scores of people waiting for someone just like us to come along:
People who appreciate our compassion, our unique talents. Someone who will live a happier life merely because we took the time to share what we had to give.
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have a potential to consider the continuous opportunities there are to make our love felt.”
