Purse mini book

I wanted to show you what the little book looked like once I was able to complete it with Sarah's (my niece) school photos. 

























































I think it turned out very sweet.  The little wooden box should protect the mini book for years to come.  I gave it to her this weekend while we were at the beach. 

I am going to make 2 more one for my Mother and sister (sarah's other aunt).  I will then start working on my two nephews.  I know they are not going to be wanting a purse so now the search for what would best represent them. 

Have a wonderful day and thank you for stopping by.

Paper Crafting how I missed you

I know it's been a while since my last post.  I have gotten back to paper crafting.  Mixed media is fun; but I miss my first love.  So here are a few of the pieces I have been working on.  The first was a birthday gift to my friend Karen.  It documents a SAR training session with her new Giant puppy Rue.

I used Tim Holtz's suit case die.  I used various papers craps I had from other projects.  I really love how it turned out.



























































































































This next project is for my family.  I am making one for each member.  I found this wooden purse at Michaels and decorated it using different papers.  I then created a small little book to sit inside of it.  The book has 12 pages in it.  Each page will represent a school year photo.  Nothing fancy just something that documents how fast they grow up during their time in school.  I will show you a few pages once I have all her school pictures together.  I think everyone including my niece will enjoy it. 

I will also be making one for each of my nephews.  A purse it will not be.  I will let you know as soon as I figure out what will house their little school year picture book.




































Hope you have a good week full of crafting and enjoying what is around you.
