Paper Play Design Team - Anything Goes - Scrapbooking Project

It was my neice Charlotte's 5th Birthday in June and she had a party with her friends from school. It was a very hectic day with lots of children and my sister did not get any photos on her camera. I took a few and I thought it would be nice to make a mini Scrapbooking album for Charlotte to treasure the memories of her 5th Birthday. The photo above is the front cover.


The Paper Play Challenge this week is "Anything Goes" and I thought this would be a perfect for my mini Scrapbook Album. This week we are sponsored by Waltzing Mouse Stamps.
I wanted to enter a few more challenges with this project and have listed them here:

Creatalicious Challenges - Show Something 3D


To make this album I used a Kaiser Craft "Beyond the Page" Chipboard blank album and painted the edges white (not that you can see the edges in the photos). Then I used nearly a whole packet of SU Cottage Wall Designer paper. I do love this paper, but let me tell you, by the time I had finished the album I was sick of looking at it LOL! I used lots of lace and lace doilies throughout with a range of flowers and ribbons. I hand wrote little captions on some of the pages which you could probably read if you wish to enlarge the photos by clicking on them.
The angel image on the front cover is a Rachelle Anne Miller stamp. The present and cake are SU stamps. Two of the magnolia stamps were stamped for me from Aussie Loz and one was my own. The cupcakes and Happy Birthday sentiment are from Meljen Designs. So there is a bit of everything included in this project and all coloured with Copics. All the stitching is Faux and done with either a Stampin'Write marker or a white gel pen. Bits of glitter are added here and there using Kindy Glitz.

I havent seen Charlotte for a couple of weeks so I havent given it to her yet, and her Mum hasnt seen it yet either. Hope they like it when they do get it!

Thanks for popping over to my blog today
