Favorites Friday

I have been planning a mini album of some of my favorite things, and this past week, I finally took the plunge and started it.  I used two 5"x7" canvas' painted them pink then white washed them.  Hinged them on one side with little mini piano hinges then embelished the front with some of my favorite papers, small tokens and blingy things.  I cut apart one of those plastic 4"x6" albums, you know the kind you find in the dollar bin at Michaels.  Sewed some of the pages together on one side to make my page protectors.  Now over the next few weeks I'll start my pages for inside the book.  I just have to narrow down some of my favorite things.  There is so much around me to love.  I'm such a blessed person!  Anyway here is the front cover.  I'll share more as I finish the pages.
That's all for now.  Thanks for stopping and I'll talk to you soon.

Papers:  Close to My Heart, K&Company
Ink: & Stamps  Close to My heart
Chipboard elements:  Target
Ribbon and buttons: From my stash
