This Bugging Mini Is…..

…FINALLY FINISHED!  I call it my “bugging mini” because it’s been lurking on a shelf just stalking and taunting me to finish it!  I could have swore I put it in a drawer, and like those creepy clown dolls, it crept it’s way back onto my shelf!  I covered this album last year or something and was just “waiting for the perfect photos” to put in it.  Well, we know that’s a crock o’ poo.  I just got lazy and didn’t want to be bothered with it….until now!  Like a fine wine…turning into vinegar…it just needed to age…and age…and age…..

I didn’t really keep to one specific theme throughout the album.  Instead, I did each page to reflect the personality of the photo on the page.  The “Keys 2 Me” album is focused on my family.  After all, they are in fact the keys to my heart…and sometimes my sanity (in that they hide the key to the sanity compartment of my brain).

Here are the pages for Andrea and Julia:

Andrea is  my independent and opinionated one.  Julia is DEFINITELY the ham!  She just cracks us up all the time!  And I LOVE that photo.  You can bet that will make it’s way into a 12×12 at some point!

Jerm and Madi!  Jerm is one “cool guy” and Madi is catching flies!  I love photos like these!

And here is the family feline, Pookie.  Looks are deceiving.  She’s not really sleeping.  She’s actually really pissed!  I got her that sweater with a skull and bow on it.  I put it on and she was NOT happy!  She’s not an aggressive cat at all.  She just lays there, shoots me dirty looks (yes, she’s facially expressive!!!) and pouts.  But she’s awesome!
And of course, the “odd” pages:

Products used:  Basic Grey mini album and “Urban Prairie” papers and fibers, Tim Holtz distress crackle paint and key, 7 Gyspies rub-ons and stamps, BoBunny “Sun Kissed”, K & Company layered flowers and butterflies, and Maya Road chipboard bird and acrylic embellies.  The felt on the cover is by Queen & Company felt fusion.  There is also a smattering of glimmer mists, Cosmo Cricket, Making Memories, and ColorBox.

Thanks for taking a look!

    What an amazing album! Love all the details, the colors, the embellishments, the photos! You can tell it was lots of work, and it totally paid off. Will be cherished for many, many years to come! 🙂

    I'll admit it….I have a couple of these "bugging" projects hanging out in my space….one being a year old 4 Christmas tree project….makes me cuckoo when i spot it on the shelf. Good for you for revisiting this…really turned out FABULOUSLY!!! you have such a fresh eye for color and design and photography! Thanks for the well-wishes btw (sorry I haven't stopped by sooner…I have been recently burdened with the curse of no internet for a couple of days) UGH! Whatever did we do before the world-wide web? Makes me sooo crazy when internet is down! Super Congrats to you too Twisted Sister!!!! It has been soooo much fun, hasn't it? You have been rockin' those sketches too! Cannot wait to see your future creations!!!!
