Color Me Miki--Feb kit!!!

Hello everyone! Happy Friday!! Today I would like to share with you the layout and mini book I created with the Color Me Miki FEBRUARY kit. This kit is super SWEET and full of scrappy goodness. Just look at the Maya Road chipboard cupcakes in there! And the Pink Paislee...those rubons go on like buttah!!

I want to start with the mini album. I used a We R Memory Keepers 5x7 album. I've been collecting mini albums for a while and they have just been sitting around. I thought it would be perfect for all the event photos I have sitting around! And I got this done in just a few days...only working on it a couple hours at a time. I also used the Add On-American Crafts Mini Marks. Totally gives that special something without adding alot of bulk!

This mini album is about Great America in San Jose. Every year we get a season pass. It's a great way to beat the summer boredom. It's only about 30 minutes away from us and it makes a fun treat for the kids...and a bribe! haha! It was Memorial Day weekend in 2008. Heintje's sister and the kids came up from LA. This is the front cover outside our house. My mom with a quick visit before we left for the day. Also a close up..I have no idea why the colors are so off, but it's the same page. You can see the AC rubons..the rows of hearts! It's layered over the KI sheer.

Next I'll just show you a bunch of pages and the details. There are 18 pages in all, but you'll have to come over to see the whole book...haha!

More the close up you can see the flower rubon. I added the gem as a center.

The tickets were super fun! Here I folded them up and stapled it to the top edge of the page.

Finally the back cover. Mama's having fun on the roller coaster, too! haha!

Here is the layout I created with the kit. My sweet (sometimes) Jassy Belle! Sorry again for the strange color difference??
And here is the sketch for the month. Hope it inspires you! Thanks for stopping by and Happy Scrapping!!!

Hi Em!

You layouts are so cute. I love the details of the cupcakes. You made a wonderful keepsake album. The tickets were my favorite part/idea.

I was thinking about what you said on my blog about the quote. I wrote that from the heart, it's not a real quote is it? Anyway, I liked the way it sounded and you are more than welcome to use it.

Have a great day Ms. Em!
