A great big Thank You...

goes out to Lora Oliver for her most kind and very generous RAK. A few days after being featured on as the Feature You Friday crafter, this wonderful book showed up on my door step.

I'm overwhelmed and very touched by your thoughtful gesture, Lora. I can't thank you enough.

{{{{HUGS}}}} to you!

Newest Mini Album

Hi, Folks.

We had another long weekend thanks to the 4th of July so again, I took full advantage of the extra time and finished this mini album for my boss' daughter. Her name is Blake and he intends to give this to her for her birthday in a couple of weeks.

I used a little of everything in this book. For the first time, I used some of those bulky but oh-so-pretty Prima flowers. I also added some of my own crocheted flowers.

I really liked the idea of creating pockets for journaling tags so I incorporated those again but this time, I used doubled sided cardstock instead of inkblending manilla tags.

This page is for her dogs.

This page is for her cat.

She just graduated from high school. Instead of a tag insert for this page, I included one of those pretty organza baggies so she could add her own keepsake to the book. You can't see the organza bag too well here but it's inserted into the pocket right beneath the "graduation" title.

She plays field hockey and my boss wanted me to include that in the book. I had to special order the paper online since Michael's didn't carry any.

I can't wait to give this to my boss and see his reaction. I sure hope he likes it as I also hope Blake likes her especially made just for her book.

So that's my newest mini album. I hope you enjoyed looking at it and I thank you for stopping by.
