So, I turned 50
in November. My husband and sons surprised me with an Ipod Nano and a long weekend trip to Disneyland. Money is a little tight so I was completely surprised with the trip. When I opened the card with the Disneyland info in it I was just like one of the little kids you see in the TV commercials; jumping up and down, screaming and crying. It was great.
I decided to make a mini book about "My Best Birthday Ever". It is my first project with my March Counterfeit Kit. Even tho it was about a trip to Disneyland, I didn't want to use Disney themed supplies. It is really more about my birthday.
I started with the beautiful Prima paper with the butterflies. I only had two sheets and I didn't want the book to be too girly anyway. Turns out that the Fancy Pants Happy Together papers matched perfectly so I used them too. Mini books are probably one of my favorite things to make. I have a ton of them.
Here is the cover of my book (it is 6" X 8"):
I cut the 50 out of cardboard, painted it and stamped it.
Here are the first inside pages where most of the journaling is:
This was our first time ever at Disneyland during the holiday season. It was quite a treat to see it all done up for the holidays and to get "snowed" on.
The left picture shows us on a couple of the rides. We are too cheap to actually buy the pictures so I took photos of the screens with our pictures on them. I covered the Tattered Angels microscope chipboard from my kit with paper. I thought it was a fun touch because the photos of us on the rides are so small you can barely see us. It is loose in the book, hung on one of the binding rings.
The left and last page is a pocket where I will put my actual birhtday cards and receipts etc. from the trip.
Anf finally the back og the book:
The quote was on one of the Fancy Pants papers and I thought it was perfect for a Disney trip. I need to add a little more journaling and this project is complete.Thanks for visiting.
See you soon,
