I blogged a few weeks back about my niece KP's new furry baby Tinkerbell and thought it was about time I made her a minibook recording her first few weeks with the family.
With me forcing every little bit of creativity at the moment, in the hope that Mojo comes running back to save me (sadly I still do not have the urge to create, I just know I should be making things) I found making this minibook really hard going. Nothing seemed to want to go together, everything pink I picked up didn't match the book and I gave up on it a few times, throwing it back into my project box and walking away from my table. I haven't felt this un-creative in a long time. I'm hoping it's just the demands of a new job and the knowledge that we are approaching a busy time of year with the dogs as they are all due in season soon and two of them are to be mated, once the puppies arrive I rarely find the time to craft. So back to my minibook, My niece is a real girlie girl and loves anything pink, so this little white dog has pink blankets, a pink bowl, a pink collar and lead and thus the minibook had to be pink. I had to really dig through my stash to find this much pink PP and embellies as it isn't my most favorite colour.
The papers are all K&Co from a pad of papers I bought a few years back. I have covered most of the primas with either glossy accents or sparkles. I used a few LYB stamps and loads of MM mini ledger alphas. The photos are all quite small as most of them are copied from facebook.
I'm loving these little dew drops that I bought from Sarah's cards last month. they are so sweet and stick down really nicely with a little Glossy Accents. My scalloped circles are cut using my SU punch and of course all the edges of everything are inked I use colorbox chalks for edging as I find they dry the quickest.
I was going to post it up but we are due to travel up in a few weeks for my eldest niece Lilly's wedding and she will be getting JackJacks AtoZ album so I would like to take a little something for KP as well
