I used a variety of fonts for the title on the cover - this is a great way to use those left over pieces from various sources - (wood, metal, mail box, plastic, chipboard, sticker) love the look it achieves as well! 'SHOES FOR ALL HER MOODS
Unfortunately I do not remember the manufacturer of the album - which really doesn't matter since it was clearanced out when I bought it $1.00 at Hobby Lobby. (I DO remember all the great deals I find - ha ha)
As you can see the front cover had that sweet little hinged door on it, so I covered the inside with a close-up of Morgan steppig into her cowboy boots an wrote the quote inside the "window" "a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step" , felt it was appropriate...
This type of mini album 5" x 7" is a great way to use up bits and pieces of paper, embellishments and to showcase a "collection", etc.
Morgan's well worn Converse an the dictionary card went well with them, used some brads to add texture to the circle pattern on the paper. The Hot pink boots with the "built-in" sock was a birthday present from her grand-ma!! I was shocked when I saw them, but have to admit, the girl "rocked 'em". I had a piece of scrapbook paper with various words on it which I cut out, HOTTIE, added the flowers and the piece of paper - all matched the pink of her boots very well.
Another word from the paper "Playful" and added a piece of ribbon as a belly band with the flower and brad - simple little embellishments.
I loved this TARGET gift card when it was given to me for my birthday and KNEW I'd be repurposing it after the funds were used. Liked it here - FREE embellishments are all around you, just look at things differently - gift cards, clothing tags - so many are too artistic to just throw away!!!
The "wrapped in warmth" chipboard was perfect for these "eskimo" booties that were so popular then. Artistic definitely describes Morgan, whether it is with her art, singing or acting in plays - those shoes saw many performances on the stage of Oak Hills High School. A little piece of ribbon again used as a belly band with a small safety pin I added beads too, plus some prima flowers.
Variety of shoes in style - the high heels w/ paisely print fabric, the red pointy flats, and the sequin covered heels from Christmas/New Years - so modern, so NOW - so THEN!
Last the black ankle boots and the iconic Cowboy boot - yes, she is FEARLESS in my eyes!!!
Here's to a fun Pink Weekend and hopefully the LAST of the unpacking in our new home - I'm sick of cardboard boxes - that is, unless one comes to me in the mail filled with scrapbooking goodies!!!
