May Club Q with Alicia!

Alicia with you today and I am so excited about this month's Club Q!  What a fun package to get!  Club Q Ultimate Combo!!!  
I am not well schooled in making mini albums from scratch, but I took that pile of envelopes and made this mini for my mother for Mother's Day. She loved it! She loves the shabby chic look and of course, she loved an album with these vintage pictures of her mother whom she lost way too early, in fact I never knew this grandmother.

I made the album a little "loose" so that I would have room to use the fabric flowers and pearls that came in the Club Q kit. I really went all out on my grandparent's wedding day photo page adding another fabric flower from the Club Q Ultimate kit and some of the pearl flourish. I cut the flourish into pieces and spread it throughout the album.

This page features my grandmother with her siblings. On this project I colored the chipboard with Latte PowderPuff Chalking Ink.

The first page has a photo of my mother and her mother and I then tried to make it as chronological as I could.  Some of the original photos had information on the back but most did not.

I also made a two page layout with my kit.  I used these old photos of my other grandmother, she is now 90 and just had a bad fall last month.  She is recuperating in a nursing home.  We all hope she gets to go home soon.

On this project I covered the chipboard pieces with paper and placed a brad in the middle to hold down the lace.
