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 ............................
