Mini books

Don't you just love mini books!
They truly are my favorite way to take a group of pictures or a group of thoughts and merge them into a little story that can most times be completed in a day or so.
Using the October afternoon "all about me" rub ons for inspiration and the Maya Road scalloped mini book I created this mini about my daughter Chelsea, having her complete the journaling.
After choosing the Scenic Route Sonoma papers I picked out the paints to coordinate. Painting just the edges of the mini where my papers would not cover.
I inked and distressed the papers and the pictures.

It was a fun way to document some of her favorite things!
