4th of July mini

My oldest daughter had a pair of jeans that she just loved, she wore out the knees holes in her back pockets, and just  had grungy cuffs. She wouldn't toss them out, so she cut them to shorts for the summer, well they finally bit the dust this 4th. So I decided to make a mini album of the 4th and incorporate her jeans, this was the last time she got to wear them. So here is her mini!




I love this pocket page, Its the back pocket of her jeans, tucked inside is a note made with stamps from Kandrews, you can find them here   I used her stamps all over this book, on the jeans, embossing on the back page and as descriptions for pictures. They really fit well in this book. And stamped really well! OK, on to more pages!!!



So a quick list of what I used:
We R memory Keepers Yankee Doodles pad
recollections card stock
assorted ribbon,
old pair of jeans as embellishments,: star on cover, 2 stars on binding, frame on picture and some trim on a page.
I Top brad maker to make flowers on pocket of jeans
Kandrews stamps
Some chip board
Bind it all
spellbinders and a corner rounder
