Rocket Age project - finished

Working on self-project
is always more liberating,
although the time spent may take forever.

This 'Rocket Age' project was turn into
two parts of the making period.
The first part is to alter the round can,
which process you can see 
in this post here.

And the second part is now.
To make the round album to put inside.

It's all about Adam's, my son, exploration
to outer space, alien, space ship, etc,
that he most loves.
It will be so interesting!

Let's take the album out..

Basically, I'm not very fond of the round shape
for an album. But since the can was round,
and most of the paper were contain round objects
(planets, sun, meteors) and also the orbit,
so, woalaa... round album it is.

Pages inside :

On page two, I made a swirl
(also from round base paper)
to spread across two pages.

I love how it turn out looks like an orbit,
and the plane is flying out through it.
Want to make it more dramatic,
but the difficulty when the album closed
stopped me at this point.

Only two pages spread like these
already make the album bulky enough,
so I go easy with the pop up things
on the back of it.

Back pages :

To open the mini album:

The rubber charm (to the moon)
was used for holding the folded papers.
And this red clip also help

This is how when the folded papers open.

All empty spaces paper will be loaded with
Adam's photos soon.
(Don't force me to define "soon", eh)
And while waiting,
don't forget the last page's message here
I write especially for my son :

Don't get teary now.
I finished the album joyfully 
remembering all the good time recorded.

The album is happily go back inside the can too.

Thank you so so much for coming
and hope you enjoy this project of mine.

And the surprise?
As a part of spreading the joy,
by the end of this month,
I'll pick one person randomly
from all who leave comment below this post
to receive a very special gift from me.
do leave your comment, okay?
And yes, I'll ship internationally.

Awesome project

Geez.... it's so out of the box creativity - I thought I'm a creative person 'wink-wink'. Never seen someone as creative as yourself. Keep up the GREAT work, keep blowing our mind off!

Naomi is having her 7th birthday on 14 April and I am torn between giving her something unique and so "her" (that is super girly, God has inserted so much feminine elements the time she was created!) versus buying an electronic gadget.

I wish I know how to make treasure can like this for my lil girl. I never quite understand how to start a scrapbook.

Is that a good enough excuse? Am I qualified for the giveaway hahahaha *wink-wink
