1.2.10

I used a Midnight Oil clear mini album I won a long time ago to make Zeke's birthday mini this year.  All the papers are Lily Bee.
I used my Stampin Up Large and Small Star punches as a repeating element throughout the book.


I got this cute clear library card style pocket at an Archivers forever ago and had been hoarding it for the perfect project...and it fit this perfectly!  I cut the photo to fit and backed it with patterned paper that I journaled on.





I used my Crop-a-Dile to punch holes in the library card pocket for the jump rings and used some Lily Bee rub ons too.  (and my dymo...love that thing!)


It's a little hard to see but I used a dry brush technique to mask a 2 onto the right hand page here.



This was my little guy's "golden" birthday (he turned 2 on the 2nd...)



He's such a doll!!

This was my first clear album, but I loved it and will totally be doing more in the future!
