A snails Pace-Mini Album Sneak Peek
A snails Pace, spring sure has taken her sweet time showing up but this is a real sign it is finally here. Green grass we have through out the year here so don't get too excited. Our grass is green all months except for July/August( I don't water it) We are on a well. I water the flowers but not the lawn. We don't really have a lawn anyway thanks to Pilgrim scratching:(
This is a big Banana slug. Isn't is cute~NOT!
Miss Tracy likes little bitty things- maybe this baby slug will make her go awwwwwwwwwww? LOL sorry Tracy couldn't resist.
I have been working at a snails pace on this mini album too. Although at this moment it doesn't seem like a MINI album. LOL
I am happy to say that I managed to get two more pages done today. I am nearing the end. YEA! I am hoping to have it done this weekend. I don't know- still trying. Here is a peek or two at my favorite page so far.
As you can see I did a sewing theme on this page. I got the Tim Holtz Texture Fades embossing folder pattern and stitches. I love it. I applied this texture to a piece of color core paper in black and red. My Minds eye is the paper background. The flower is a trim from the Lost and found collection. Some of Tim's ruler ribbon and more Lost and found buttons. I LOVE this page. I think it turned out so sweet. Quite a few tags. Some are die cuts from the Lost and found collection and some are handmade from the paper collection. The center of the flower is a brad, it was yellow. A little dab of paint and ink took care of that;) So do you think my friend will like it? I sure hope so. I have put my heart and soul into this little book.
Here is the whole page. The sewing texture fade made a mini book. It is so cute. I put lots of journaling spots in this mini album as I know she loves to journal.
That is it for now. Maybe in a day or two I will have more to show you. I have some work to do.
Hope you have a lovely weekend.
