Toilet Rolls Mini Album

Talk about leaving things to the last minute !!! I have finally finished a Toilet Roll Mini Book for Let's Get Shabby Monthly Challenge. I have to say, I am really happy with how it turned out. Last year I couldn't help but notice that when the TV or DVD was on, my grandchildren switched on to another place.

One morning I was trying to talk to my GD Mia and it was like talking to a brick wall. It's not that she was being naughty or anything like that, she just couldn't hear me. She was watching Toy Story and I was amazed at how many facial expressions were traveling across her little face.
So, being the ever vidual scrapper, I grabbed my camera and started clicking away. In a period of 3 minutes, I captured 15 different expressions. When Mia realized that I had the camera AGAIN !!! I thought I was in for it but she just gave me the biggest smile and giggled.

I made this little book from toilet rolls and it is my entry for this month's challenge at Let's Get Shabby. The criteria was to use chipboard, paint and lace. I struggle with lace but on the pink pages I managed to use a little. All of the pages have been edged with white paint as well as the front transparency. The front page (transparency) has a chipboard frame and there is a tiny chipboard crown and heart which I painted and dusted with fine glitter while the paint was wet.
I made journaling cards which slip into the flattened rolls. As I am running very late with this project, I haven't had time to add the journaling but it will include why I took the photos, why I was there and a list of Mia's favorite DVDs at the time.

I must apologize for the quality of the following photos. 10.30pm is not the best time to be taking photos, but when one is as disorganized as me ............................


















Thanks for stopping by,
Hugs, Irene xx
