Lucie's Nova Scotia Trip

*** If you are looking for the Birthday Sundaes blog hop click here. Also on that post I am having a giveaway so check it out!

Hi Crafters,
My little cousin's birthday was this week and it just so happens she is here visiting with her family from Ontario. This means we were able to spend her 9th birthday with her! One part of her birthday gift from me was this book. She has just recently got into scrapbooking herself. I might have sent her a kit... starting the addiction young lol! She also joined a group at school that scrapbooks at lunch time. (Why didn't we have anything like this when I was in school?!) When I get a permament position I am going to start a scrapbooking club at the school! Anyways, here is the book I made for her. Some of the pages are pockets on both sides, some are just half page pockets and some are just blank pages. For the base I used file folders so it is nice and thick and sturdy. The papers and embellishments are mostly from a paper pad by atd, Momenta with a few papers from Me and My Big Ideas. To bind it I used my GBC comb binding machine with a 1" clear binding. The ribbon on the binding are just pieces from my stash and the felt flower is one I made. The words on the front are made with stickers from my stash. Oh and of course no mini album would be complete without my Elles Studio date stamp :)
Thanks for stopping by today and Happy Crafting!
