A make-n- take- take 2!

This is my second attempt at this book. I made my first one for my son, (I will post that soon) at the scrap book expo in Puyallup earlier this month, I had such a fun time I made a second  mini album with my niece the other day. She is the same age as my son, they go to the same school, and hang out with the same kids. Her younger brother is a grade behind them and my oldest daughter a grade ahead. They are all truly blessed to have each other. This June, was graduation for the 8th graders, she and my son are almost freshman, so I decided to make her something special to remember her 8th grade year... she liked it so much she is going to make one every year with me, one for my son and one for my oldest daughter too! The template, or design of the book, I got from a make and take at the Puyallup Expo, from  The Scrap Yard Chicks .They were there, and having such a great time, I stood in line to take their little Slam Book demo make and take. I also got my picture taken with Darcie, here wer are... excuse the bad hair day, I was running a little late that day. (Sorry Shannon!)<-Click there to see Shannons new blog!! Good stuff!


 boy did she put up with a lot from me, I hadn't eaten all day or had anything to drink so by the time I sat down I had a little brain fog!!  This book starts with 5 pieces of paper, and you go from there.... There are 2 pocket pages for pullouts, and one page for tags or other items. The rest are just regular pages...If you stop by their blog you will see how it was done at the show, This was my second book, so I made a few different choices. All right enough of the blabbing I will get on with the project


This is the cover of the book, I used the bind it all, and a chip board number and smootched it with some green shiny smooch~!



These pages are pretty basic. This is Zabrina, and a picture of her and my son.
I am going to just load up the pictures and give you a list of what I used at the end!





This double layout is her favorite pages, the pictures don't really do them justice. They are so pretty, and oh so covered with Stickles and flowers!





The other two page layout is just to cute! Love the pictures on these pages too! the pocket page has a tag behind the photo on the pull out page! The last page is a picture of her school mascot. Good bye 8th grade!


The paper I used was An SEI pad called Madeline, I used a few punches, tons of Diamond Stickle, pearls, bling,   a few paper doilies from grandma's house, Flowers, flowers and more flowers, - we actually ran out! The ATG gun, zig pen, I top brad maker, ribbon, and the bind it all. I think that's it... And It was all from my stash!!! Woo HOO for that!

Your "Slam" book turned out amazing! I don't think we should call it "Slam" though, it is way to pretty for that!
