My most exciting project! Having been inspired by some of the lovely ladies on the docrafts forum and also the wonderful mini books on You Tube I decided to have a go at one myself!

With some of my birthday money I bought some Tim Holtz alcohol inks, grunge board elements, and a distress ink pad also some glimmer mist. I also used the die I had with the Bigshot I got for my birthday to make the front cover. lots of tags, distressing, embossing, ribbons, glitter, fibers, charms later this is the result:
II aim to add photos of family days out etc. I have enjoyed making this mini album and can't wait to start another!
