"Good Times" DCWV Insta Album

Hi there,
Today, I am sharing an Insta Photo Fun Album that I absolutely had fun with.  The new 4 X 4 DCWV Insta Albums are so neat.  They come in various colors, perfectly sized, and the D-ring binding offers options for easy and quick customization. I was able to add corrugated board and printed burlap as inserts in the album to add more texture and give it a little chunk. More details and tutorial  featured on the DCWV blog today.
