My first Mini book
I have been playing in paper. I love playing in paper now and then. I got this book cut out as a freebie from a order some time back. As soon as I saw it I thought of my dearest friend. She is more like a sister then a friend. I had to make it for her.
The color choices are her favorites, colors of her furniture and decor.( although I love them too!) I took a few pics that I had of her, her family and had them printed in black and white.
I am not showing you all of the book pages as some of them are private moments and notes. Here are pics of most of the book though. You will miss the one paper flower, some of the pockets and tags but you will get the feel for the book from these pages I believe.
I love the fold of this envelope. I found it on utube and had fun playing with it. This is Kris being a goober.
My favorite page. A picture of her Mom( right) and her Auntie Joan. I adore these women and they make me feel like family. Hubby said the wings are upside down. I played with them and liked them like this. So blah to you hubbers:(
This is Kris and her four boys. What a funny bunch of guys they are.
Left this page open for her to add a pic of Eli her grandson. I didn't have one of him.
This is more room for pics to be added. I used Tim Holtz tickets for journaling as the pockets to add pics. The pic will make Kris laugh. You see when she was trying to move to Arizona she got stuck here because of this lovely snow( you see here) for 3 weeks. I had the best time with my closest friend for three whole weeks. She called it a vacation and I call it one of the best times of my life. God how I miss her.
I tried to make the book so that there wasn't a lot of decoration on it. Kris is a pretty classy, simple gal. She doesn't like the fluff, frilly, lace and flowery type stuff. Clean simple and antique-ish. So I tried to give that feel to the book. I hope I did achieve that.
So gals how did I do for my first book? PLEASE LET ME KNOW *TRACY?! Since you asked...
Well the dishes are calling and then I want to go create some more stuff. Sewing I think. Have a wonderful week.
