Mani-Pedi Mini Album

     Welcome to My Cricut Craft Room's Fun Friday! Yup today the Design Team was asked to use a Cricut Lite cart for their scrapbook LO and I used Slumber Party to make this cute album of 2 of my grand daughters having a spa day while on vacation. This post is picture heavy and loaded with details but I promise you are going to love it, lol!!!! So let's start with the cover:
     I started with a chipboard kit I got in the clearance bin @ Michael's for a buck! I love the colors brown and pink together so I started with some scraps of paper from K&Company: Best of Brenda Walton and covered front back and inside pages.The title Manicure and Pedicure was cut from the Slumber Party cart @ 4''. I used all the layers and just added some faux stitching around the edge. I also had some word beads that I added to the cover and, of course, some bling.
     I do like to mat my pics. I think it helps them pop!
     I cut all my dies for these girlie pages @ 2". Again I used some faux stitching to make my die cut stand out. I also decided to add a small flower to balance it off.
        This is my favorite LO. I used the make up brush and mirror dies for this page. The small heart on the mirror is from the heart opening on the brush. It makes it like a  vanity matched set. I decided that rather than make a journal tag I would just go for it and use a gel pen that Erica sent me. I love using it and find I use it a LOT!
     What is a Lay out without some embossing? I think it ties the two pages together quite nicely. I used the nail polish die for this page and added some blue stickles since the polish they chose was blue sparkles! I have been going through my stash of supplies and found this blue and pink border and thought it would finish these pages off.
     You guessed it, more doodling. This is Mia and her big cousin Alexis. They were so excited to have a spa day together!
     Check out the water Mia was soaking her feet in. They both use chocolate AND strawberry fizz balls. Oh BTW, this spa is Scoops and is @ the Great Wolf Lodge in Williamsburg, VA. It smelled so good in there. The only problem was that they had their spa day the first day we were there. It was not a good idea. Since there is a water park inside the Lodge, the chlorine destroyed all their polish the same day they had it done. Thankfully they went home with their own bottles of polish!
     That's it for my project for today. Before you go please check out Erica's moving sale at her store. Boy does she have some great prices. You can shop Here. Now it's time to see what the rest of the team has to share with you @My Cricut Craft Room. Have a wonderful week end as the summer begins to wind down and as always, I love to read your comments.
