Mini books are so much fun!!

Morning Everyone!!!
Now I know that it arrived and Kat has opened it I can post her little book I made her last week for her birthday!!!!
I was going to put it in for the Get funky challenge this month which is pockets!!
I used some gorgeous pink flowery paper from the free romance colourway on my Dreams come true papercraft factory from funkyhand. I adore the whimsical flowers on this one.
I printed it out and popped it through my creatopia to make a huge funky sticker!!!
The card stock I use for my little books is actually beer mats!!! it might seem a funny thing to use but they are just the perfect size and very cheap to get!!! My mum picks them up for me whenever she pops down to her local!!!!!!! romfl!!! (they probably think " hey, its that lady that takes the beer mats home" whenever she goes in!!!")
The little pocket is made out of vellum, there's one on the inside cover and the first page is a pocket on each side ( just fold a little flap of paper up!)

The little pages are lined paper chopped up in my dreamkutz to make sweet little pages.
Now for my confession about the pencil....I too have my mum's is an ikea pencil!! I always pick up a few when we go as they are just so super handy. I covered it with a bit of my funky sticker to make it match and then made it a little holder from my scraps left over.
The little hearts are just punched out of the paper.
The super cute little annie's card from Tiddly Inks was perfect for the job as she has a plain card in her hand.
I added kats name and then coloured annie in black and pinks, nice and girly!!! she has glossy accents on her shoes and a bit of bling on the hem of her dress, awwwww!!!
Right then, I must dash off and get myself ready for a day of biking at clumber park, it is so beautiful there and we are meeting friends for a good old cycle around and bbq picnic lunch, yummo!!!!
