....and almost done. I put some Imaginisce flowers with MM pewter square deco brads in the center on the corners of the mirror (and Andraia says that's her favorite part of the mirror.) :)
A close up of a flower....I love the pink colors of these :)
I felt it needed more, so I added some strips of pink dotted ribbon and her name framed by some bling (of course! What middle school girl doesn't like bling?)
Hope you all have a great night...hubby is about to leave for work, and I'm ready for BED. I leave you with a horrible quality cell phone photo of my son in his tuxedo...he's the ring bearer in a September wedding, and went for a fitting today. Hubby shot this pic of him for me :) He's growing up so fast...I can't believe he'll be 4 in a few short months!

Good afternoon! I had another chance to sneak into the craft room today…little man doesn’t feel well. He is complaining of an upset tummy, and although he hasn’t gotten sick or anything like that, he just isn’t himself so I know something is up.
Rather than sit around and do nothing (and of course after playing around with Pintrest and refreshing my blog’s look…do you like?) I got up into the craft room and worked on Rileigh’s album a little more. I’m only 4 years behind *gasp* haha
I saved this post card that Rileigh received from her preschool teacher during the summer before kindergarten started up, and I recall the look of delight on her face when I told her she had mail. She could read very well before even entering preschool, so she was abe to read the note from her teacher. It’s exciting to get mail!
I began by misting the background page with my homemade glimmer mist, a combo of Eco Crafts raspberry acrylic paint, Pearl Ex powder, and water. I layered some BG Euphoria paper and added the postcard over it. I thought the colors of this paper line matched the post card quite nicely, don’t you think? (I blurred out the address even though we don’t live there anymore, you just never know…)
A strip of BG with some MME Laundry Line crocheted flowers/Prima flower and BG glazed brads = great place to put the title! “teacher” is MM Flutter Glitter Bling Alphas in green. At the last minute I ended up sticking this gorgeous black washi tape, and love it.
Letters in the journaling are from the Girls Paperie jubilee sticker pack (which is just awesome.)
I love doodling :)
Random lace ribbon with washi tape on top. More Girls Paperie sticker words and doodling!
There you have it! Who says only photos should be featured in an album?!
