New Years Day - Your Story Photo - Part 3

Hello there! Here are the last few pages in the mini album.
On this one I used another metal word from Making Memories, "cherish" and added some flowers and bling.
I cut the flourish in the pic above from Straight From the Nest @ 1-3/4" and dazzled it up a bit with some bling and a little flower.

One of my favorite pictures of the day...I cut the heart/chicks again using Straight From the Nest @ 1-3/4". I added a little sand castle and seashells from a Jolee's Title set that I had.
I will post the finished product tomorrow!
Have a great day!

New Years Day - Your Story Photo - Part 2

OK, so here is Part 2 of the mini album I am putting together of our day at the beach on New Year's Day.
Again these pages were made using DCWV glitter, shimmer & regular cardstock and the Flower Shower & Garden Party stacks.
We had a lot of fun taking these pictures in the water! LOL Water was a bit chilly!

I cut this little birdie using Straight From the Nest cartridge cut @ 2". added a couple tiny prima flowers and some bling. "birds of a feather" is from My Pink Stamper's Tweetie Hoo Puns stamp set.
And another Straight From the Nest cut, paisley flower cut at 1-3/4" embellished with faux flowers, buttons and bling!
There aren't any Cricut cuts on this page...just prima flowers, bling and a metal word "togetherness" from Making Memories.
More to come!

New Year's Day - Your Story Photo - Part 1

My Mom, Stepdad and two of my little sisters were here in California from Idaho for a couple weeks just after Christmas. They rented a condo on the beach that was awesome!

On New Year's Day they invited all the family over for BBQ and some nice family time. We took a bunch of pictures and I decided to make a little album for Mom using my Your Story Photo (hope she doesn't see this before I get it sent to her, LOL). All pages are made from using DCWV glitter, shimmer and reg cardstock. Patterned papers are from the Flower Shower & Garden Party stacks.
I think I will break the pages up into several posts and then share the finished project.
Just across the street from the condo was T's Toe Rings. We all decided to get matching toe rings! Can't tell from the picture above what they look like but they are knots. One of our Aunt's came later and we took her back to get one too. Another aunt picked out a differnt design and Grandma even got one too!!
The toes in this picture here belong to Mom my three sisters and Me! :) Alot of the cuts I used in this mini album are from Straight From the Nest. "chillin with my Peeps" was cut at 2-1/4" using DCWV glitter and shimmer cardstock.
Embellished with some paper flowers, I think Prima, and some bling!
On this page I used a cut from the Botanicals, it is called vine, cut @ 2-1/4".
"Life is Tweet" cut using Straight From the Nest cartridge @ 2". Embellished with bling, buttons and faux flowers.
Stay tuned for part 2....
Thanks for looking!

Have a great day!
