Punky Sprouts and My Little Shoebox!!

This month we got to work with the new line from My Little Shoebox. I got to work with the oh so pretty Keepsake line!
I chose to make a mini album about Mickey, Audrey and me. With Mickey entering Kindergarten in the fall and Aud going into her first year of preschool, I know it won't be much longer before they start spending more time away from me than with me.
On the cover I layered lots of stickers, roll-ups and punch outs from Keepsake along with a Lil' Lacey Blossom and a Lil' Stem.
On the back side of the cover I die cut a large scalloped circle to cover the adhesive from the front side. I used a Lil' Stem to create a flower and mounted it on a smaller scalloped circle and then embellished it. The first page has some journaling telling the kids how much I love getting to stay home with them.

The photo on the next page is one of my favorites of the two of them together. I cut out a frame from one of the sheets of paper and then cut it in half to accent that photo. I also used another Lil' Stem. The next page has some journaling about how much I love this photo and how well it represents their relationship.
These next two pages feature pictures of me with my kids. I love the left page with my son because the elements from the previous one (the bird, the music note and the Lil' Stem) show through. The right side has me and my daughter and is accented by a piece of Lil' Stem.
The last pics are just ones of my kids right now. I did a lot of embossing and die cutting on this album and on Mickey's page it really shows. I was also able to run a Lil' Stem through my machine and die cut it as well! Aud's page has quite a few fussy cut elements added to it. I used Fabritac to adhere all my papers and such to the canvas pages.
Finally the back cover. I took one of the journaling elements from the papers and punched it into a circle and mounted it on another Lil' Lacey Blossom. I really love how this album turned out and how much it means to me. Thanks for stopping by!!!
