More Cuteness ...

Can ya stand one more thing I made with my Create a Critter cartridge?? My daughter is in an AMAZING dance company that has an equally AMAZING dance concert every spring. It is a VERY busy week filled with rehearsals, running around and LOTS of performing. Concert week was last week. During concert week, the girls are assigned big/little sisters. The purpose of this is so that the older girls can mentor and befriend the younger ones and help them through the week. Some wonderful attachments and friendships are formed, which adds to the cohesiveness of the company and the quality of their performance.

Anyway, one of the most fun aspects of the big/little sister connection is that they give little gifts to one another throughout the week. My daughter asked me if I could make a little something, and this is what I came up with ... a mini coaster photo album. I let Amelia choose the "critter" she wanted to have on the front ... she had a hard time choosing between the whale and the octopus, but as you can see the whale won out! (The little book actually has more pages than I am picturing, but they were just blank with no photos like the ones I am already showing ya!)

It also gave me the chance to drag out some retired SU dsp ... I totally {{{heart}}} this "Good Morning Sunshine" paper ... and I am SOOO glad that Pacific Point will be rejoining the cardstock "families" as a permanent addition (okay, I know that they are now gonna be called "collections" and not "families," but old habits die hard!).

Paper: Good Morning Sunshine dsp, Chocolate Chip, So Saffron, Kiwi Kiss, Pacific Point, Bashful Blue, Whisper White
Ink: NONE!
Accessories: Cricut Create a Critter and Calligraphy Collection cartridges, chipboard coasters, Cuttlebug Mesh Texture and Dotted Swiss embossing folders, small oval punch, Bind-It-All, rhinestone brads, brown/vanilla gingham ribbon, label maker, pop-up glue dots
