Mini Book

This little mini book was inspired by fashion...which was a "challenge" at the Fiskars Craft website for the month of April. I have been trying to upload to their gallery, but it just ain't working for me! :(

I spent alot of time at the grocery store (since the kid's Karate Dojo is right there) so I walk by the cutest little store all the time...it's called Corky's Daughter. They have awesome stuff...it's a great lil' gifty shop. Well, for the past week, they have had the most adorable apron outside. It catches my attention everytime!!! It's turquoise with white dots, and big white scalloped flowers and cherries in the middle of them...yes, cherries! And I just LOOOVE anything with cherries!

It inspired this mini book...




I used DCWV cardstock and Creative Imaginations pattern paper. The white cover flower is chipboard, which I traced and made matching cardstock ones for each of the pages. I also used some odd rub ons I just got in my April Fiskateers swap, and some ribbon I had lying around. Best thing...it is created on tags made from an old cereal box. Fun way to recycle!

I think we may send it to my mom for Mother's Day filled with pics and notes from the kids. She can hang it up at her store to show them off :)
