Black, White & Mini...

This is the last week of our Black and White theme, and I thought I would show you something a little different...
My first passion is creating different and unusual Mini Albums.  And I made one for my DreamWeaver design team "Audition" that is one of my favorites.
The "Base" is a Ribbon Spool Holder that is sort of like a small version of a Counter Top paper towel holder.  I made the pages using acrylic sheets and stenciled the Snowflake LS 26 on them using White Staz-On Ink.  (I put a pc of Black cardstock behind the Acrylic in the picture so you could see the Snowflake)  I then used the Zutter Bind-it-all to attach my Album Pages around the Base.

I matted photo's of Ella and Daddy having a Snow Day down the scariest street in our Neighborhood!  Thank Goodness the road is so steep that cars can't make it up in slippery weather, so Andrew was safe to Toboggan away!  (I printed the photo's on Canvas paper, you can see the texture in this picture)

Then I pasted the Penguin Stencil LL 560 in Black Embossing Paste on Glass Slipper Bling Cardstock, and yes, I hand cut them all out (You KNOW how I like to do that!) I adhered the penguins haphazardly throughout the album and I was done!

Oh, and I added Black Snowflake Peel-Off stickers to the base and top of my Ribbon Spool.

What do you think...?  I believe that Lynell liked it, as she gave me a shot and here I find myself early on a Thursday morning sharing this project with You!  Thanks Lynell!

So, as this is the last day for this challenge, be sure to get your entry in to Lynell before Midnight in order to be eligible to win some Free Stencils!  And as an aside, next week we will be joining up with the Art Institute Glitter (ooooh Glitter!!! My FAVORITE!) so be sure to come back and check that out, but also take a peek at their Design Team this Friday so you can see what they're up to...and you might recognize a few faces...No, not me, I have to admit, I thought about it, but I've missed a couple weeks here because i got overwhelmed with Store Stuff, that I didn't want to risk Lynell kicking me off this team!  (Like she would, have you met her, she's so sweet...she even mentioned that she might come up and teach in the store for me one day...I think we'll hold her to that!! wink wink Lynell)

Don't forget now, Black and White by Midnight, and Glitter next month, I truly hope that you take part in our challenges as it is so much fun pulling out your stencils and getting creative!

And with that,
Make Mini Albums 'til you Melt,
Hand cut stenciled images 'til you get Hot
and can you tell that my A/C isn't working tonight, yikes!
