QUICK POST - MINI BOOK CLASS

Happy Friday all! This should be a quick post because I have a class tonight and need to finish getting ready! I am going to demo this little mini book - so cute! I found it on Nichole Heady's blog - that woman is uber talented!!!!! The theme is girls because the ladies coming over tonight are the moms of the little girls my daughter hangs out with. I thought I would try and get them all together so we could meet each other plus intro them to Stampin Up! It is a mom and me class although three have already cancelled this morning so that leaves six. Their loss! Anyway, here is the book - I will apologize now for the quality of the pics, I really had a hard time taking the shots of this for some reason. This first pic is the cover of the book - the theme is the girls so I used the new Seriously Sassy set. the DP is the Berry Bliss because it is PERFECT for a book like this. I just used coordinating cardstock and it came together really well! Here is the inside of the book which shows the two mini accordian pages on either side which are held closed by ribbon. These next two pics show each mini accordian page on the left side of the book- both sides of the pages. I did add pictures of my daughter so that they could see how easy it is to makes this into a little keepsake scrapbook. Then, the last two pics are the right side of the book, both sides. I used a lot of chipboard, rub-ons, and punches on this book and I like the way it turned out. It was fun to make so I hope they like it too. Tell you all about it tomorrow! If you have any questions, just ask me since I don't have time to list the deets right now.
FACT #19
I am a huge dog lover and have had at least one dog ever since I was really little. Currently, I have three dogs - two miniature weiner dogs named Bonnie and Clyde, and a golden retriever named Cisco. I treat them like they are my kids (well, they are!) and would have several more if it was practical. I have thought about raising little miniatures myself just because of the joy it brings me to be around them.
Have a great weekend!
