Dresser Mini Book

I completed the book yesterday... and photographed it before the finishing touches (inking the edges of the matts, etc). That Henbury Lane paper collection just keeps going on and on and on.... I used it for the whole book, and used Core'dinations papers for the tags and matts. The book fits snugly into the cover - though I haven't decorated it yet - a few handmade flowers perhaps? There are 30 tags/matts in this album - and a lot of them are at least 6.25"x4.25" - plenty of space for a full size photograph.
I used little ribbon 'tags' so the book can easily be removed from the case, held on a little extra-tight with brads too.
I like that there's a lot of 'fold out' pages to this mini, and some tags are pulled from the top, some hidden in pockets, and some just on full view.
For someone who really isn't that keen on the colour pink, I've used it a lot on this mini! :)

And.... here are the kittens today - I have just taken this photograph within the last five minutes, and they are looking cuter than ever!
Missy (who is now called Misty, because my youngest daughter says so *lol*) loves being on the bottom of the kitty-pile... think she likes the warmth :)

That little mini is so cute! You so do a tutorial on this one too hint hint lol! Loving the kitties, isn't it funny how different litter mates can look. We have 13 in different litters at the shelter at the moment. They are all adorable, but some are a LOT of work, poor kittie mommies lol.

I really must check my typing before hitting the send button LOL

This book is beautiful. I know what you mean about 'pink' - it is not a colour I favour but I seem to end up using it a lot LOL

It's such a gorgeous book - although I'm shocked by the whole "not keen on pink" remark LOL.

Aren't they just so adorable. I wouldn't be able to stop looking at them.

Love the mini, even the pink which isn't for me either. The kittens have their eyes open in this photo, how precious are they. Love that they all cuddle together. So what's next on your list to do?? I'm sure its good. Thanks for stopping by my blog and letting me know what makes you happy today.
