A Cutie Patootie of an Album!!

I recently gave my craft room an overhaul (just waiting for one more unit to be made and then I will share some photos!) and I don't know about you but because I had to empty cupboards and boxes I found a lot of bits and bobs that were long, long forgotten!!

This little acrylic album was one such thing :) *cough* there are actually another 3 in acrylic and I lost count of how many chipboard ones there are!! On the up side, I do know they're there now :)

I will admit the photos are not doing this justice but c'mon it's see through, it reflects and it's grey and gloomy here today!!! This is the best I can do folks!! LOL

My DGD starts school in September. This little album is an homage to last month's Tuesday and Thursdays....our days :) The photos are Instagrams that I took on my phone.

All the papers are from my scraps boxes

I cut the hexagon background on the Silhouette.

recognise this one Lizzy??? DGD watched Lizzy's SCRAPfriends tutorial so out came the mists!!

No....not face paint......felt tip pen!!! Not on my watch, at preschool!!!

I really like the challenge of acrylic...i.e. you have to think about what will be seen on the reverse. It's a fun way to use up your stash and a lovely way for a small girl to remember her happy Mamma days :)

Also just been told about this :) Thank you lovely ladies for picking me!!

Thanks for popping in today,

  1. LOL! Oh, she is SUCH a cutie....& even Basil got a look in:):) That felt tip pen....cringe...hope this isn't the 'grunge' look she's gonna aim for at 16!!!!! I have NO idea how you 'manage' an acrylic mini...looks slightly [understatement] difficult to me...but GO YOU using up that that little stick pin on front....ewwww...forgot I had some of those, too.....!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Beautiful and unique mini album. Love how you put it all together.

  3. Congrats on the feature and your mini album looks adorable!

  4. Such an adorable project! Love the minion! :D

  5. oh my, this is one sweet clear album!! I love how this looks like - I actually have a couple of clear minis stored in my stash..might be time to dig those out now :). and that last minion photo just made me LOL :)!! fab mini!
