Our Dear neighbor Granny D back home in Mississippi, gave Bella this book her very first Christmas. I wanted to do a mini album about how special it is that NOW, Bella has grown up and reading this book to us. How special is it that she as well as we, used to sit and read this book to her all the time. NOW, here she is reading it to us. Ok before I tear up, Here is the mini album. They grow up so fast.
(You may click on the images to make them larger.)

I used the September Paper Posies Kit as well as a few extras to make this mini

(the photo makes the button and the paper look pink but its really red I promise)

(I added the eyelash fibers and the colorbox fluid ink chalks love that sparkly eyelash fiber)

I added the Buttons from american Crafts and the jewels

*all edges have been inked with colorbox fluid ink chalks in dark brown through out this project

* I dyed the thread that is tied through the buttons with BEE POSITIVE Glimmer Glam by Tattered Angels

I added the Jewels They were not included in the kit as well as the Making Memories tiny alpha 7 (her age in the photo There are 7 little pearls to represent she is 7 years old)
The photo is pop dotted off the flower and the flower is HALF popdotted off the patterned Paper.

The Tim Holtz Tissue Tape (LOVE THIS STUFF) Is not included in the kit but I had to use it on this tag. I made the tag out of scrap patterned paper. Reinforced it with the tissue tape. I folded the flower over it (the flower is in the kit) stapled the admit one to the top. Used the back of another scrap piece of Paper to write my journaling. Inked over the tissue tape.
I used my making memories edge distresser to get the edges distressed.
Also used iridessent gold glimmer mist to make it shiny.

More Tim Holtz Tissue Tape, Glimmer mist and colorbox fluid ink chalks.

The little mini album was in the kit as well.
Thanks for looking :)
