How to find out iPhoto size in MB/GB?

Hi all,
I have iPhoto 08. When it's open, it tells me at the bottom how many events I have. What I would like to know is how big iPhoto in total is. The reason for this is I'd like to make a handy backup of iPhoto on a flash drive/memory stick and need to buy the right sized memory stick.
Anyone know how I can find the size of my iPhoto album.
I do have backups for it in my Time Machine drive and on my iDisk, so this copy would just be for convenience. Thanks!

Just open up your Pictures folder in Finder and it will tell you how large the "iPhoto Library" bundle is.

Thank you, Nugget!
I needed an extra step. Once I opened up the Pictures folder, I clicked on iPhoto Library, then went to File>Get Info and it told me.
6.47GB for those keeping score at home,
