She is....

I showed a sneak peak of this album last week- I'm so excited to finally share the whole thing. I am so pleased with the way it turned out- all supplies are by CTMH- and for the most part all of them are brand new. The only exception is that all the holes used for adding ribbon were made by my crop-o-dile which I purchased from Michaels using my 40% off coupon.

The first picture shows the cover and first page (rounded page with photo) The title started out as white chipboard. I sponged Sorbet ink and heat embossed with a 50/50 mix of prisma glitter and clear embossing powder. The white corner design and dragonfly are rub-ons- you can see some other rub-ons showing on future pages as well. The ribbons are from the sorbet and creme brulee collections.

The second page is the backside of the photo showing through the cover in the previous picture. I used the Perfect Day Paper pack on nearly every page- love this paper!!

The third photo is just a story page about my daughter's love of music and singing- she can sing just about anything after hearing it once and she LOVES John Denver songs!! Crazy! The red embroidery floss down the right side of the scalloped page is from the CTMH Red Embroidery Floss package- I believe it was Tulip floss.

Just another story page. This one is about her love of painting and generally all things crafty. She loves making cards!! She'll be a scrapbooker someday, I hope :)

The next page in the book goes along with the "creative" story mentioned above- it's a photo of her painting our picnic table!! so cute!!

Does the next one need any real explanation- she's goofy!

This page is a "story" that goes with the goofy tongue sticking out photo! First of all the "silly" was made with the new CTMH white alphabet stickers that are ready for color- I sponged Sorbet ink on the letters- then edged with Desert Sand. Next I covered them with glue and added Prisma Glitter. They are very sparkly!! The story reads like this: Mom: Addison- How old are you? Addison: Two Mom: you're not two- you're three. Addison: No I'm not two- you're two. Mom: You think I'm two? Addison: No- I think you're too old!
This little tag is the back side of the "silly" page and goes along with the "nature" page in the next photo. I used paper from the Notebook Paper Pack on these next two.

You might remember seeing the photo of my daughter jumping in the lake back in July- I just had to include this awesome photo in her mini-album!!

The following page is made of rub-ons

(besides the backgroundpaper of course!!)
The last photo in the book is this one that I took during a picnic at the park!! I added her name with rub-ons on the bottom tab of th ebook. The back cover is just the back side of this paper - no photos/ words etc so I didn't bother with a photo. I hope you enjoyed this book as much as I do!! I just love the way it turned out.
Overall- this album took about 6 hours- including the time to choose a theme and photos!!
