Guitar Mini Book!

I have made the following guitar Mini Book for Georgia (our Niece) who is turning 7 next week! She adores Hannah Montana, so I thought I would make a mini book to keep all her favourite photos of her Hannah memories in (maybe mum would help with this)! I had some photos of Georgia when she came for a sleepover with Aimee and I took them to see the Hannah Montana movie the next day, and the rest I have "borrowed" from Ruth's blog. I drew two guitar shapes onto some chipboard for the cover of the book and covered it with some Bazzill cardstock, I have had the purple coloured sheets of papers for forever, they are too gaudy for a 12 x 12 layout, but cut up like this with photos and embellishments they look okay! All the pages are cut from Bazzill cardstock. Some of the flowers I have made myself and added some generous helpings of stickles! All the photos have gotten edited in photo shop with added digital frames as I thought layering them up with actual cardstock would make the pages too bulky! The journaling is printed onto white Bazzill cardstock and cut out! I added some eyelets to keep the top of the guitar from ripping (hopefully). I have left the blank pages fairly simple, as I had no more photos to add in! I made the name chain, by added lots of beads and charms. I also added a bright pink ribbon to represent a guitar strap! I think that is about it, any questions contact me and I will only be too happy to help you! I was sooo sick of drawing and cutting out guitar shapes, but will be doing it again in a few weeks due to Aimee asking me to make one for her, oh why, oh why do I leave myself open .....

and yes I know I have spelt movie wrong in the next photo, it is now corrected!













Some close ups of some of the details, on this page I stickled all the veins of the leaves and flowers to add a little more to the page!



My hand made flower, stickled to death!
