Mother Goose Grandma Brag Book

You folks are probably getting tired of all my scrapbooks, but I am having fun!

I purchased Kathy Orta's book before Christmas and I finally got around to trying out her tutorials. This one holds over 25 pictures!  I made it up in only a couple of hours too.

I used Graphic 45 Mother Goose papers.  These were the scraps from my larger album posted here.  The cover is designed to show a couple of the Mother Goose stories combined together.  It's a bedtime story with the boy looking at the stars with the cow jumping over the moon all to give you a taste of what might be inside. Get it?

This is a close up of the chain with two little bead charms.

The book opens up to reveal all this space for pictures and a little journaling.

These are the journal books in the side pockets.
I think this would make a great gift as a grandma's brag book or for anyone who wants to display special pictures - just not the whole set.


Tutorial: Kathy Orta, Interactive Mini Scrapbooks
Paper:  Graphic 45 Mother Goose Collection, Bazzill Black
Markers/Ink: Distress Momento Black
Embellishments: Chain and findings from Cousin International

I'll enter the album into the following challenges:

Have a great day!
