An Instant Scrapbook or ATC Album

I've been working on this book since yesterday afternoon for the Relief Society B-day Party/Service & Talent auction at church tomorrow night! Women from church will be bringing stuff they made or coupons for services like a night of babysitting or a carwash or other services like that, then we all get fake money to bid on stuff for fun! Since I'm pretty useless for physical labor things, of course I decided to make something. I made an "instant scrapbook" with ten pages where whoever wins it can just slide their own pictures in.
Here's the back one of the slide in picture frames. For the sliding mechanism, if you can call it that, I just glued on strips of cereal box so there would be a little track the picture could slide right into. It works like a magical charm! And even though this won't be used as an ATC album, the frames are ATC-sized. I just know I'm going to make another one of these for ATCs, guaranteed.

Sliding out action shot! It's pretty dang sweet, if I do say so myself. While I was working on it, I thought I had better keep it several times.... But I dont' really have time to make something else, sooooooo I guess I have to give it up :) The whole book is 5x6'' with 5 front and back pages. You all just have to wait until tomorrow to see the other pages because I'm just suspenseful like that. Happy Monday!
