A Brag Book Mini Album w/Webster's Pages~!

**For my February Giveaway, please go HERE**

Hi~! Today I have a mini album to share with you that I created as a "Grandma's Brag Book" for my mom, featuring all of her grandchildren :). I used the breathtakingly beautiful Modern Romance collection from Webster's Pages to put this mini together. I just love how the bright, cheerful colors enhance the sweet smiling faces within :)~!

"Delight the Heart" {Mini Album}

Since I chose to use the stunning images provided on the Modern Romance "Love Defined" paper, I wanted to keep the cover somewhat simple. So I started by adding the trims along the right-hand edge before using some of the *new* Washi Tapes (the orange is from New Beginnings and the pink is from Sweet Notes) from Webster's Pages to create the banners behind my title. I then used a Blue Fern Studios "Organic Vine" to set the stage for my title.

To dress up the edges of my book, I used the coordinating *new* Modern Romance/New Beginnings Ruffled Bloomer Trims. Aren't they amazing??

How about a peek inside?
To start off this book, I thought I'd begin with a sweet Grandmother's Prayer. I then began by designating a page to each one of my mom's grandkids, starting with my Wyatt :). 

On each page I included overlays cut from the Sweet Notes and Composition and Color collections. I like how the pops of black look against all that color :).

I also added a little bit of fussy cut elements here and there, as well as some classic embellishment favorites like the owl charm and the button w/twine :).

I've used washi tapes from all of the new collections throughout this album. Here I've used them to create borders on my pages.

You might have also noticed the cute little bows I used in a couple of different pages, like the brown polka dot bow you see here. These little bow sets are part of the fun & affordable "Quick Picks" program offered by Webster's Pages. See the full collection HERE~!
