Always On The Go…

Aug 30, 2011

Since I have been a bit sen­ti­men­tal about how time seems to be fly­ing by so fast with my girls I thought I would share with you a mini album I cre­at­ed of lit­tle Noah when he was just a wee one… I would go over and watch him off and on some days when Car­o­line was bogged down with work. It was always so fun watch­ing him explore his sur­round­ings. I cre­at­ed this mini album doc­u­ment­ing one after­noon with him and as you can see he was “Always On The Go.” This is anoth­er album that is pret­ty easy to recre­ate if you need a fast album to make. The mini album, rubons, rib­bon and chip­board embell­ish­ments are by Maya Road. That pat­terned paper is Pig­gy Tales. Pages 1 & 2 Pages 3...

Cov­er the top of your orna­ment with vin­tage sheet music. Using Col­or­Box Flu­id Chalk Ink — Creamy Brown, ink the edges of the paper mache orna­ment.
