Clearly Heavy Hambly OverLay!!!

Don't get too excited because this is definitely not a new project but an old one I did awhile back before life got so crazy! So here is the clear acrylic album I did of my Great Niece Nav's 14th Birthday:

I used the Hambly Clearly Heavy Overlay and cut it into 4 equal sections using my trimmer. I then took and cut the one edge of each page with my scallop scissors into graduated sizes so that when I put the book together a little bit of the ruffle look would peek out from under the top page. I then took the awesome 12 inch border stamp from Paper Trunk and stamped the edges all the way around of each page using StazOn in Black. I then decorated the pages of my mini using the Cherry Arte "Girl Power" line of awesome papers along with some of the felt from Fancy Pants, embellisments from American Crafts, and the crocheted orange butterfly Maya Road!! I used the Zutter Bind-it-All to bind my pages and finished it off with a bow of some lucious lacy black trim!! Finished!! Nav loved it which makes this Great Aunt feel pretty darn good! So there you have it! I thought maybe since things have started to settle down here and I have actually gotten some MOJO back, I should start posting some creative stuff again!
Well, that is all for now! Lol!!

I'm totally loving this project - I *hope* that you're sending this in for the Hambly DT call! You'd rock that team.
