Back in 2006 my albums were 8 1/2 x 11 (basically 3 ring binders) and I scanned them instead of photographing them. So the image itself isn't the best, but you still get the idea. Not a single embellishment on this page--just photos and neutral papers with some fun textures to them.
And yes, these are really items I found in the laundry that had been in my kids' pockets. They all loved to collect little bits from outside--rocks, acorns, shells, metal scraps. Fun stuff.
