Love Letters...

Wednesday, July 27, 2011

My Little Shoebox asked the design team to focus on journalling for our July projects so I decided it was time to throw caution to the wind and attempt another mini album. Now mini albums are probably the one item that I dabble with least as the concept is something that I struggle with... why? Who knows! Anyhow, I put together a keepsake for my daughter filled with lots of things that I've wanted to tell her now that she is moments away from her teenage years.

The base for my mini album is a gorgeous chipboard butterfly album from Kaisercraft which takes all the guesswork out of preparing your surface... thankgoodness or I just may never get a mini album complete. I used the Home Tweet Home collection from My Little Shoebox as I loved the gorgeous colorscheme and the cute birds and flowers worked perfectly with the butterfly theme.

And how fun is this... I even got to play with my i-rock and white glamrocks as MLSB were swapping products with Imaginsice this month so I got to play with both companies and blog about it!

I haven't included a photo of the back page because it's a very personal journey between mother and daughter. Hope you don't mind.

From farm to you...


  1. How could we mind, it is always a joy to see the bond between mother and daughter. TFS
