Yourstory Project, mini album/journal

So since my two daughters saw me playing with my new Yourstory machine, they have been asking and asking me to make them a book as well. So, we sat down together and they picked the colors and cuts they wanted to decorate them. Here is what we ended up with:

Katie picked the cut from A Child's Year of a girl reading - because she LOVES to read! She also picked the embossing folder - because it had letters and words like a book. Her name was cut using one of the fonts from Hannah Montana cartridge.

Amy also picked a cut from A Child's Year - of the girl holding a kitty - because she is totally my little animal lover. And...we have a cat, so she thought it was perfect. She also picked a polka dot folder to emboss it through the Cuttlebug. The font for her name is also from Hannah Montana.

We finished off with a bit of stitching around the edges. Here they each are with their finished project:

I am entering this in the Cricut Circle weekly challenge - Mini Albums. They aren't entirely certain what they are doing with them, but I know at least some pictures will probably end up in them. So far, they have wanted Mommy and Daddy to write letters to them in their books, so they can wake up in the morning and be surprised to read what is written. They LOVE them, and it is such a sweet memory for them!

Thanks for stopping by for a visit!
