The happy things we love to do when we are outside


The happy things we love to do when we are outside book cover

Hello friends! :) I thought it was time to document the happy things we (my nephews and I) love to do when we are outside. We take a lot of walks around the neighbourhood...short walks though...it's tough with 3 boys and a camera...*LOL*...last week I brought them to the playground and it was the longest 45 minutes ever....so hard to keep an eye on every 'fearless' kid....(plus I was still recovering from the whole mooning incident...*LOL*)

Anyway, this is a mini album cover on 6X6 acrylic. This is the second one in my 6X6 acrylic book series. The first one was The Sew Book. I'm sure I will get to the inner pages eventually. *LOL* I find it tough to do mini albums because I find repetition difficult (as in the same page format so that the album looks cohesive). I only produce one-of-a-kind pieces...(according to me!)*LOL*.

The wood "frame" was upcycled from packaging. Patterned papers are from My Little Shoebox. Lots of 3D dots for dimension as inspired by my guest Donna's dimensional challenge. Various stickers. Wrinkle ribbon. MS edge punch. Edges inked with Stazon.

Happy weekend! :)

I live the way You use your thickers. I really restrict myself in using them. But inspired by you, now will take more use of them. Bright and beautiful as usual.

What a cute cover and great idea for a mini book. Now you know I want to see the inner pages too. I think acrylic are the hardest books to do as you have to plan the inside pages just right so they don't overlap on each other.

Oh I had ALMOST forgot about the mooning incident. lol
