Cricut Mini Swap (mini for Faye Rains)

This is a mini I did for a Cricut swap. It was my 1st time doing one of these swaps and boy did I enjoy it. We had to incorporate leaves and cricut die cuts in each. My partner was Faye Rains. Very nice lady (Hello again Faye)smile. We had to commitcate with each other to find out what colors or theme we wanted and must I say she was not picky at all. So I got to pretty much do anything I wanted. (smile) As you look at all the pics I took of it , I added lots of tags and used the Forever Young cartridge. The roses on the front I were handmade by me and added stickles and embosing to them.The paper stach used was from Prima. For the embellies I  used whatever was in my stash. I did my best to kinda go with a vintage look with the inked edges. I really hope she likes it. Mine should be coming soon from her and I will share that book as well. Until next time everyone.... 

And now here is the mini that she did for me. I totally luv it and she also included some fun treats with it too. Thanks again Faye.

Baby Monkey Shower (paperbag mini book)

Here is my newest paper bag mini book.It was done for a co-worker at my job baby shower. She is having a little baby boy in December. Her theme is monkeys. I think the book came out so cute once I finished. When I gave it to her she was sooo surprised and loved it. The cartridges I used was New Arrival and Storybook. The paper used was from my paper stash and from DCWV Summer Dream. Thanks for looking.

                          Here are the tags that go in the inside slots for tons of pictures and journaling.
