Mini Book

I have made this mini book for my next door neighbours who celebrated their 60th birthdays within in weeks of each other!
I have used a grandparent kit by Carolees for all the papers, prima flowers, Lake Land flowers, paper mania flowers, and inks, brads, stamps, gems and ribbons.

I was lucky enough to have done a workshop with Lance Anderson (Rusty Pickle) and I followed the mini book layout from the altered book that we made!

The book is made up with layering, inking, and stamping. With pockets and tabs!!!!

The blank pages are for their new grandson that I wasn't able to get any photos of!! I have also blurred out the faces of everyone has they are not my children and I didn't ask permission for them to be on the web!

To see any of the pages in more detail just click on the image!

Just a close up of some of the gem/crystal work
