A vintage mini & a YouTube video!!!!

 Hey everybody,

Just wanted to share a mini album that I made for my friend Carmel-she wanted a photobook for pictures of her daughter Jane from when she was young to give Jane for her birthday. So, I created this book for her using Tim Holtz lost & found papers! Perfect for that vintage feel for childhood photos :)

Also, at the bottom of this post, I will have a video of the first RAK I have ever sent being received by its recipient-my scrappy friend Pam over in America! Check for her videos on youtube-her name there is poconopam & she is just such a nice, friendly lady-subscribe if you have a youtube account,

 On the front cover is some Tim Holtz stickers, graphic 45 stickers, bling, maya road lollipop flower & some words I wrote with my stickers from K & co. I added the larger February sticker as thats when Janes birthday is. As it turns out she was born on tuesday the 1st of Feb-and on the sticker the 1st is on a tuesday too-perfect!!
 I used real swarovski crystals for the centres of the flowers
 Carmel had mentioned she didn't want too much embellishments & that she wanted it to be a photo book so I kept it simple adding just a little spot for her to title & date each photo-on the plainer pages I added a flower & swarovski crystal to the journalling spots.
 These papers are perfect for older pictures because the colours are soft-this would make the perfect background for a baby picture

 I was thinking this ruler page would be good for a school picture

 This pictorial alphabet page is one of my favourites

 I love this soft blue colour-I just love all of Tims papers & products-did u see the previews of his new stuff from CHA-hello!!!! I cant wait to get some of those goodies!

 I liked the way at the centre of this page is a dolls pram-works well for little girl pics :)
These are the beautiful crochet flowers my mom made that make an appearance in Pams video-please watch the videp here-it was so nice to see Pams reaction; 

Thanks again for visiting!! Aideen X
