Thankful Mini Album

Hi Everyone!!    Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving a fun shopping day on Friday!! 

Today - I have a project to share, that I will sharing with you in two parts!  I have a 'Thankful' mini album I've been working on, and while I'm still fine tuning the inside, today I really wanted to share with you the cover!

This fun album is about things I'm thankful for and features paper from Farm House called "Sugar Hill".

The front is a mix of a coaster which spring-boarded the whole idea, an arrow chipboard album from Clear Snaps that I turned upright to look like a house, leaves stamped and cut out from the new set Leafy Fun Labrador, and a bunch of other goodies, silk sunflowers, acorns and glassine paper leaves.  The fun touch of silver ware at the bottom just seemed to add to the home spun feel I'm going for in this little book.

On the coaster I stamped the new set Pomegranate Decor' in cream ink and really loved the added detail.  Twine for a bow at the top and to gather my silverware was a great rustic finish.

For my title - 'Thankful' I diecut the letters from chipboard and paper - using Tim Holtz' 'Word Play' XL Bigz die.  I love this!  The letters are all different, some upper some lower case and there's numbers too!!  That took me a bit, I cut them 3 times until I found just the right paper! lol

Well thanks for stopping by - be sure to come back and shop our Cyber Monday Sale!
