Wednesday extra from Val Mangan

This week's extra is brought to you by the extremely creative Val.  Val has has designed these two delightful mini books using page protectors:

Val said:
I love to make mini albums and I'm always on the lookout for something different. When I discovered some unusual page protectors in a local hobby shop I snapped them up. I thought I might be able to make something crafty out of them. After a little bit of trial and error, I came up with this simple mini album format.
here's what the interior looks like:

here's the journaling page on the back of the cover page:

These little albums, which are about 6 x 4, make a great brag book or gift. They are terrific for showcasing a lot of photos quickly and with as much or as little embellishment as you like. The one on the left features photos from a family trip to an amusement park. The "6" album will feature photos of my daughter at age 6. (Wouldn't it be fun to have a library of one for each year?)

If you'd like to give this project a try, a tutorial can be found here.
