A Mini Book Blog Hop

Good morning, welcome to my little post showing you the mini book I've made entitled 'It's all about me'.
This project was the idea of Mel over on her fab blog IspeakMelsh. It was based on a class over at Big Picture Scrapbooking.A group of us have all joined in and made our own interpretation of the theme.and we will be bloghopping around to each one to see what we've all come up with..
I'm guessing you have found your way here via the lovely Sian and have been inspired by her lovely blog.
So, let me tell you how I went about this.. I kind of followed the idea of a mini book and kept to the size that was suggesed,so it really is quite mini.Anyway, I wanted it to be snapshots of all the things in my life that I enjoy.
It's not easy photographing the whole thing so there are some snippets and a couple of the whole thing. I used mainly 'Dear Lizzie ' papers.I used some of my favourite stamps,including a flourish and swirl that I love  my favourite butterfly stamp,and a friendship flower stamp. I haven't done lots of long journalling, just a few captions.I used a Heidi Swapp round mirror with glittery American Crafts letters for my initials on the front cover.The little flowery blue flourish on the front was stamped and then I painted the leaves with some green shimmery Inca Gold.
I could go on for ages waffling,but know that you will want to be hopping off to the next blog, so here are the photos of my little book...


so there it is, and now I'm sure you are anxious to get on your way to the lovely lady who has a starring role in my book - Deb,Thank you for stopping by and thanks again Mel for organising this whole thing.Enjoy your hopping !
