Remembering Somer Thompson

The pictures above is the layout that I created to go into a mini scrapbook for Somer's mom Diena. A call went out on youtube for anyone that would like to create a page for a mini album to celebrate Somer's upcoming birthday which is April 5th. This will be the first birthday that her family will celebrate without her, she had a twin brother. I'm sure many of you have heard the tragedy behind this story but today lets celebrate Somer's life.

Distressed/Antiqued Mini Swap

Here's a sneak peak at my mini for the Distressed/Antiqued Mini swap over on the Cricut MB. My swap partner will be celebrating her 10 year anniversary and she wanted a book to put pictures of her and her husband, I hope I did them justice in this one.
A little about the cover: The flowers are handmade using the layering and water technique. The letters are done using Marion's puff paint and utee technique ( you can find her on youtube at APieceofCraftdotcom).. More pictures will follow when the swap is complete.

As promised pictures of the inside of my mini. I put a lot of frames in this one because my swap partner will be celebrating her 10th wedding anniversary. I sent her some sxtra goodies becasue if I would have put one more thing in this book it would have exploded!! LOL

Hope she likes it.

Mini Purse Album

Here another mini that I just completed for Glue Scissor Paper DT Challenge. Make sure you check out the blog for the other awesome creations!

This is one of the $1 chipboard albums from M's which I only used 2 of the pieces. I drew the pattern on my card stock and cut it out and glued it to the chipboard. (for the bottom I just cut a strip of chipboard). I created the lollipop from from some silk like material and curled the edges with a lighter then glimmer misted and added the feathers. The latch was made from a strip of black card stock and covered with UTEE. Added the pearls and the pearl charm that came from M's. The latch is held down with some magnets from basicgrey (they are strong!). Hope you all like it.......comments are welcomed.
