Mini Scrapbook for Grandma Sister!

My sister and I love our jobs as Grandmother!  She lives in Arizona and I live in Southern Illinois, but we stay in almost daily contact with lots of grand daughter stories! When I started making mini scrapbooks, she said she wanted one ... so it was a natural to make one for her about being a grandma! I just visited her son's Facebook page and grabbed several pictures of Kelly ...

The cover of the book and several inside pages are made with the Karen Foster "Grandparents" design kit. I used lots of ribbon and faux rhinestones to dress up the patterns!

I used some other themed pages because it was so easy to do with the pictures I had! Kelly's purple dress was trimmed in flowers and butterflies ... and the teacup Disney ride picture was a perfect match! I shop the dollar store regularly for packages of stickers and embellishments for scrapbooking. I just keep them until I find a use for them! Miss Phoebe loves our dollar store ... and now we are getting a second one in our town!

The scrapbook pages are cut with the Cricut Elegant Edges die. I love those patterns because there are plenty of edges, corners and other elements to add to the pages. In the picture on the right page, Kelly has made a life size picture of herself holding a cluster of balloons, so I created a layered cluster of balloons on the page!

The following pages represent holidays! I enjoy putting pockets on my pages and inserting stamped tags ... 

Rhinestones make the butterfly much more beautiful!

My nephew plays in an Irish band! Kelly loves to tag along. 

Here's the back cover!  I'll be sharing with a few of the parties listed in my sidebar. Make sure you click through to have a little fun!
