Basic Grey Cappella mini

 Hey Guys,

I have yet another mini to share-This mini was again ordered by my Aunty Anne & it was for my aunty
Una for her birthday. I made it using Basic Grey Cappella papers & embellies.

At the moment I am very excited as I am hosting my first ever swap over on there are 2 places left for anyone thats interested!!

Enjoy my mini,
Aideen X
 The book is title "A little book of Joy" using stickers & masking letters for the Joy, I also used bling, black acetate stickers, a basic grey cappella bloomer & buttons
 For the closure-my favourie Tim Holtz clip & beads
 Here I have used basic grey cappella journalling spot & chipboards & I wrote "story" in stickers

 I left this page plain just adding a little chipboard heart to the bottom right hand corner
 I made a spot here for a photo or journalling with the title "Love"& chipboard flowers
 A black acetate tag

 A blue acetate frame & bling
 Again, I made a spot here for a photo or journalling with the title "Happiness", a chipboard heart & a black acetate shape
 A black acetate corner piece with a chipboard heart
 Here I have used basic grey cappella journalling spot & chipboard flower
 Another Cappella chipboard

 I wrote "Memories" on this chipboard piece
Back cover with logo & acetate circle
