February Girls Club

Due to a very busy February, I thought I was going to have to skip Girls Club this month (OH, the HORROR!), but a conference I was to attend on the 23rd cancelled, so I'm free that day! So...

...this month, Girls Club will be held on Saturday, February 23rd from 2-4pm, and this is just one of the projects we will create:

Isn't it adorable?! It's a brag book, complete with sheet protector pages inside (made out of clear envelopes)to hold favorite photos. Not only will the girls enjoy filling this album with their own photos, but this would be a great gift for Grandma!

EDITED TO ADD: I decided the front of this brag book needed something else, so I have since added two Tempting Turquoise brads in the upper right-hand corner. I thought about taking another photo, but decided it was too much work with all the editing, etc. involved. So you'll just have to imagine that they're there! ...it does make it look even cuter though!

...I couldn't resist popping in a photo of my adorable boys - this is Mason, Maddox, and Morgan. Aren't they dolls? Anyway, this little project has been featured on Splitcoast lately, and I enjoyed trying my hand at it... it's really quite simple! The hardest part about this was coming up with the colors. Since I don't have daughters, I'm a bit out of touch with what the girls like these days. But I'm quite pleased with this combination of Pretty in Pink and Tempting Turquoise! I used the new Level I Hostess pack of Designer Series Prints Paper - the girls will get to choose from several different patterns to complete their book. The polka-dot petals came from the Pick a Petal stamp set, and the sentiment came from Warm Words, stamped with Rose Red ink. The center of the flower is one of the NEW Rose Red Flower Fusion felt flowers! What a great way to add another texture to your creations.

The cost for Girls Club is $10 per child, or $15 for a mother/daughter pair, where both get to create the projects. Girls ages 8-15 are welcome to attend! All supplies are provided, except adhesive. I also recommend bringing a pair of paper snips to avoid waiting to share mine. Contact me to reserve your spot!

I wish Texas wasn't so far away! I'd love to come make this absolutely beautiful book at your place...but the airfare would make it a prohibitively expensive outing ;-).
