Toilet Paper Roll Mini
Well, I think it is high time I made a book about myself. I have huge books for both children and a lot of stuff about my huisband, but I really didn't have anything just about myself until now. I got the inspiration to do a toilet paper roll album from the Bad Girls Kits message board. I saw one my friend Danielle made and I knew I had to try it! Some of my journaling prompts and ideas came from the Crazy about Mini Albums blog. Thanks for the inspiration, ladies! My favorite part about the cover is the cameo, which came from my local junk shop. All of the papers are K&Co's Blue Awning collection. The Pink flowers are Primas and the others are all Bazzil. I wish I could tell you where the gems in the center are from, but I lost that package long ago. I love the key and the lock. They are made by EK Success. The stickers are K&Co, mostly Brenda Walton's designs. The corner here is from the junk shop as well. I suppose it came off a photo frame or something. Noticed how I used the bitty fragment of the Heidi Swapp chipboard clock (leftover from another project) here. Amazing how such a tiny scrap can speak huge volumes. Oh, and I love the dticker with the dog and the feather duster. You can't really see it in the photo, but the sticker says "Housework Stinks, Saving for a Maid" That is a true dream of mine. I hate cleaning! I used the insides of the toilet paper rolls to hold my embellished journalling tags. They are a little too private to share here though. Thanks for reading!
