The album pictured is what I took to the Daughter Tea as my 'Memory'. My parents made this for me for Christmas when I was 8 or 9 years old. The wood is paneling that my father salvaged from a construction site.
It is hard to tell in the in the picture, but my mother wood burned Photograph Album on the cover and filled cut scrapbook paper to fit inside. I have always treasured this. It is a good example of a gift costing next to nothing but being priceless!
This is a picture of the first page of the album with my parents pictured in the center and a picture of their 5 children.
