Melissa - Shine Bright Mini Album & Layout

Good morning, it's Melissa here and today I'm sharing a mini album that I made with the lovely Shine Bright Collection by Kasiercraft.  This collection has a lot of yellow, grey and black patterns, a combination I've always loved.

Our eldest daughter Azaria started school last July, and in December our school put on their first ever show.  Our kids go to a Christian school which is rapidly growing, and it was so exciting to be able to have enough kids to do a show.  I got to choreograph a dance with 6 of the kids including our daughter.  Azure had three different roles in the play, so I got lots of photos.  Rather than do a whole lot of 12x12 pages I decided to make a mini album.

I made the entire album with white cardstock, which I machine stitched around the edges and I stitched down the centre to bind it.  I glued the yellow ribbon to the back of the album.

Here is a close up of the cover with the ribbon untied.  

Below you can see the stitching and some of the goodies poking out!

Due to the fact that the album contains lots of other children, I've decided not to show all of the close up photos.  

I made the most of the journalling cut aparts, and I made the layered banner below.

This paper contains lots of phrases that were begging to be cut apart!  I used the 6x6 sized version, and just layered some paper under it and added the yellow bow for a simple embellished page.

One of Azaria's roles was a chicken in the barn where Jesus was born.   She had the cutest costume and had a felt mask.  She brought the mask home after the show, and I managed to convince here (kind of!) to let me scrapbook it!  I made the following page with scraps that I sewed around the edge.  

I punched the circles out from the 6x6 version of this paper.

Love love that I was able to include the actual mask!  Whilst there are no photos of her wearing it on this page, there are in the mini album.

You can purchase the collection in the shop here.  Make sure you check the blog each day for new inspiration from the rest of the awesome design team.

I'll be back very soon.
Melissa :)
