My Birthday!!!!!

So my birthday is today and I do not know if my family as anything planned today or this weekend, gosh my hubby keeps me in suspense! He knows I am like a kid when it comes to surprises and holidays. LOL! Hey that's me been that way since I was a little girl. 
I am super busy with gift wrapping, shopping, swapping, making cards, going to my girls plays, concerts, & the list is too long to name everything, I think you get the picture.
It's good to say since I have joined the groups that I swap, share, create, & chat I have been featured 2 times on Creating The Crafty Life and once on Children Network! I have learned, hosted swaps, and made friends.
I just wanted to say thank you to the ones who have given me a chance to shine, comment on my projects, and gave a thank you when I did the same! Truly God has and still is blessing me I wish the same to and for all of you. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!!!!!
Love ya'll,

                                                     Thanks for crafting with me baby!

 Happy Crafting,

Pocket Mini Album

The front of the mini is at 2 different views. I hope that you can see the tule I applied onto the mini. First I blend stains & glimmer mist dried the paper , then ironed it, applied it onto chipboard, stamped the script image as well as the butterflies and added tule on the cover it gave the mini a textured feel. I distress the rings with paint. 

This is the first two pages check out the picture below to get a closer look at the pages and pocket tags.
 The third and fourth pages and pockets.
Close up of the pages above
                                          The last two pages and pockets
                                                       Here is all the pockets.

   Well I hope you have enjoyed the mini as much as I have. Yes it does take alot of time to do the mini but when you look at it, it's all worth it in the end. If you can not see the wording on the tags click on the image(s). Until next time.

Happy Crafting,
