my first acrylic mini album!

holy moly, was i scared to start this! once i did, though, i got SO into it... so much so that my kid is lucky she got dinner. lol i used an acrylic mini from clearscraps, some acrylic paint, and assorted rubons and bling. at first, i was considering adding chipboard pages to this, because i had a lot of pictures i wanted to include. the more i thought about it, though, it just wasn't how i wanted it to be - acrylic is supposed to be CLEAR. so i thought, and thought some more, and finally came up with using flaps after browsing through old classes at scrapfreak. cathy taught a great class on acrylic minis, and bree was the one who taught a class on flaps, but i just kind of did my own thing and made it work for my pictures. turned out FUN! thanks for looking!

left some empty areas for journaling by the actual teenager...

aren't they cute?!

that's sam's friend, getting her makeup done by her momma.
thought that was sooo sweet!

more space for actual teen writing... ;)

i ended the book with a fun quote about dancing.

i put a pc of yellow cardstock under the pages just for photographing the book. shows detail better... :)
