I have modified David's create project backup tool so that it includes the skin used, as some users modify skins to their liking.

New version of the tool attached.
This version creates the usual lifeboat file and a separate zipped version of the skin in the album's root directory.

When recovering the skin remember that you might have a different version, but with the same name, of the skin already installed. If so you will need to temporarily rename the existing skin so as it is not overwritten by the 'old' recovered skin. You could mitigate that by renaming modified skins, before using them in a project, so that the version number is included in its name.

If the tool is run before the album has even been built it now creates the output (album) directory first.
