I've cut the figure out of mine - but the full pic is great too!
3 double-sided papers -
You will use both sides of each, one needs to be quite dark as this will be your border. The others I have a mix of plain side and muted patterns in pastels. If you dont want to do double-sided, then have 3 single papers and scraps. All in all they need to work all together pattern and colour-wise to your taste.
Trims and laces
These need to vary in length between 8-10inches. How many doesnt matter but when laid out horizontally, one under the other, the depth should be about 4 1/2inches.
2 lengths of string or twine
approx 11 inch and 12 inch
Alpha or title
Mine is a chipboard title of 'Happy Easter' which I painted beforehand
5 small buttons
Choose what will go with our LO, I've got a little bunny and chicken diecut (cut from a cricut I think) and a journaling spot if you dont want to write directly onto your LO.
Here's a bit more of the Teresa Collins 'Giving Thanks' Mini Album I showed a few weeks ago that I turned into a Monthly Calendar with one photo and a place to journal on each page so by end of 2011 - a years worth of memories.
Havent put the photo in the April page yet because I'm waiting for Easter!
