Memories Make Me Smile Mini with Susie

Hello and welcome!

Susie here today and we are continuing our month long partnership with Want2Scrap!  Today I would like to share a mini-album full of pictures that just make me smile!

The pictures in this album are ones that I snapped of my daughter years ago.  She was playing on the swing set in the back yard and she was so happy and carefree!  She was swinging so high at one point I thought she might actually take off and fly! *wink* I like to remember everyday moments like that...and smile!

To decorate the cover I started with a sentiment from the Serendipity Words & Phrases Strip, cut circles out of Dream Big 100, and layered on Turquoise Bling and a butterfly from Want2Scrap:

I custom colored some seam binding to tie onto the binding rings:

I used Blue Moon PowderPuff Chalking Ink on one side of the seam binding and Caribbean Blue on the reverse side of the seam binding.  I love the variegated color you get!

On the inside cover I included more circles. I inked the edges with Midnight Confessions PowderPuff Chalking Ink before I added more bling from Want2Scrap and some alphas:

On this page I used Feather Gray PowderPuff Chalking Ink through the Arrows Stencil from Want2Scrap:

You can see here how I cut this vellum so that I could use it to frame the photo:


Here is a close up of the stencil work:

These pages were covered with Sheer Joy 200 and include another sentiment from the Serendipity Words and Phrases strip:


These pages were covered with Dream Big 200:


On the last 2 pages of the mini-album I pulled out Feather Gray PowderPuff Chalking Ink and the Chevron Stencil from Want2Scrap:
