And another using the fab. Maya Road and October Afternoon!
This is another mini I made with a Maya Road Album and October Afternoon papers/embellies. In the beginning, I really thought that I had messed this book up! This was my 1st binder type mini and I covered it quite awkwardly - I didnt know what I was doing!! But in the end, I am extremely happy with the outcome!!! So, here's the story... Last year, my son's 1st year in preschool, we made cupcakes at least twice a month for his class's snack time. He loved doing this so much, and I finally decided I needed to document this activity, but figured they'd end up in a scrapbook page somehow. I was playing one day, and decided this line of paper and elements were PERFECT for our time in the kitchen! I wanted to try a mini with funky elements. The flowers are made from the october afternoon papers that I simply hand-cut, rolled into little balls, then unfolded and inked the edges with chalk. The pinwheels...I love those pinwheels! I made those by googling it. I love how they came out. Also, on this book, I distressed the edges of every page with a blade and also chalk - this was my 1st time trying this and I love the result. Hope you like it too!
