Always Remember - a Mini Book

Good morning!  Crate Paper sent a box of stuff that included this mini book I've been wanting very much!  It's been nice working on it a little at a time when I get a chance.  The bling thing in the middle of the front page was picked up at the craft store in the sewing section, and the frame was in the dollar bin.  I just took off the back of it and hot glued it on.  Love it.  The ribbon came from a gift my mom sent so that's nice to have that on there.

The clear cover is a heavy-weight plastic with "Always Remember" at the bottom corner and has  gold-dotted vellum underneath - so pretty!

 This book will be a mish-mash of baby pictures and current teen pictures, whatever picture I grab that strikes my fancy.  We have a big box of pictures from when the girls were little, just thrown in all jumbled up from before I went digital, and I'm glad to be doing something with them.

I love the ones below.  I was just going through that box of jumbled pictures as well as some current ones back from the printer.  I noticed that Sara had the same expression as a baby and a teen in both pictures so wanted to scrap them together :)

Well, thanks for looking.  It's definitely one I'll keep working on here and there and will share more in the future.  Have a great day!

P.S.: I'm going to experiment with some link parties I've found and see what happens.  Here are the buttons for them:

Love this! Just looking at the front cover, it's one of those books you just want to pick up and hold and look through.
