In-law vintage photo book

I just got back from a weekend crop and managed to get some vintage photgraphs of my husband's family in a small book. We recently just sold my mother-in-law's house and upon cleaning it out we found these photos of my husband's family. I used the 7 gypsies book covers and tried my new Tim Holtz mover and shaper broque die. I was a little off center so I just cut down the book so that it looked more centered. I found these 7 gypsy book rings at 75% off! I love how they have words on them but found that you need to punch a bigger hole than a standard punch makes to have the pages fit properly. I used Tim Holtz paper stash for the pages and embellished with his swivel chains, umbrella man die, as well as the clock die. I used his paper distresser to distress the edges of the paper and then distress inks to color them. I hope to add more pages to the book but I love how it is turning out so far.
